Palio – Lunch

Palio is located in Hotel Michael, RWS.

The interior was rather casual looking.

They serve set lunches on weekdays – 3 course for $18++ and 4 course for $25++. They claim to be an Italian restaurant serving authentic Tuscan cuisine.

This is possibly one of the cheapest set lunches you can find for a 5 star hotel’s restaurant. (but anyway, I have doubts that Hotel Michael is really worth 5 Stars)


The bread was very normal

Paprika Marinated Beef Salad with Gorgonzola Dressing and Granny Smith Apple

Cream of Pumpkin Soup served with Julienne of Sun Dried Tomatoes

The soup was my choice of appetiser. I love pumpkin soup, so this was an obvious choice for me. I enjoyed this soup! It met my expectations of pumpkin soup.

Crabmeat Salad served with Avocado Mousse and Fresh Cherry Tomato. This was the extra salad available for the 4 course set. There was no other option for this course. This salad disappointed me. The crab meat tasted like tuna in mayonnaise.

Grilled Beef Tenderloin served with Beer and Cherry Sauce

Pan Seared Swordfish Loin served with Braised Leek and Marsala Wine Sauce

I had the swordfish, and I really wished that they served it raw in sashimi form instead. I love swordfish sashimi but felt no love for this. The flesh was very tough and tasteless.

The Lemongrass Scented Crème Brulee served with Fresh Berries

This was the most outstanding this for this meal! The lemongrass flavour blended in perfectly with the custard! And the burnt sugar was done perfectly. It was crispy but not burnt and didn’t carry that burnt charcoal taste. The custard was cold, so there was no burning of my throat or tongue. In fact, this was one of the best crème brulee I’ve ever tried.

Coffee or tea was included as well. I had TWG French Earl Grey, again!

This meal was very filling. Save for the bad extra salad and main course, it was actually quite worth the price.


Ambiance: 7/10

Food: 4/10 (main course), 8/10 (soup and dessert)

Value: 8/10

Overall: at $18++, it’s quite a good deal. Considering that the tea alone is worth $6 already. But I wouldn’t try this again unless I happened to be at RWS.
