An inviting oasis in the Central Business District of Palmerston North, The Gallery offers delicious food, an excellent wine list, and stimulating art. A visit here is a wonderful opportunity to indulge the senses, to experience our Mediterranean/European influenced cuisine, friendly service, fine Vittoria coffee and an appreciation for local as well as international artwork, music and other talent.Vibrant colours in artwork create a visual sensation just as food and wine create textural sensations on the palate. Appreciation is personal in all art forms, and it is our desire to satisfy your needs with rewarding your senses.
