Bringing joy and merriment to the Palmerston North dining scene, Dejeuner is wearing a brand-new frock. Having undergone a dramatic transformation, they're out to impress with a stylish European fit-out and food that looks almost too good to eat.

Keep an eye out for a cheery pair of red doors and you have arrived. Welcoming diners with a relaxed bistro vibe, you can choose either a street-side table or head inside to their spacious restaurant that brightens up countless evenings. Joyous yellow walls form a happy backdrop for the crisp white tablecloths and monochrome furnishings, creating a cooling taste of summer.

The dinner menu encourages you to take your time and savour the evening. Sample Europe's sunny terraces and endless evenings with a fresh Caprese salad, the house-cured Ora king salmon tartare or an exclusive cut of quail from Easter Brook Farm. Alternatively, warm up with a classic French onion soup or NZ's favourite seafood chowder with plenty of garlic prawns.

Moving on to mains and the stunning cuts of meat keep on coming. From free-range pork belly to farm venison, beef short ribs and chicken kiev, meat-lovers are well and truly spoilt. Vegetarians also get the all-star treatment with the homemade pumpkin gnocchi with a decadent drizzle of truffle oil and the vegetarian Wellington with heaps of seasonal veggies. Finally, let the evening reach a delicious crescendo with a magnificent opera cake or get gooey with dark chocolate fondant. Whatever you do, don't hold back.
