Palmerston is the second largest city in the Northern Territory and one of the fastest growing cities in Australia. Just 20 km or so from Darwin, it makes the excitement of urban life easily accessible, while being close to the slower pace of rural areas such as Howard Springs. Students at the local Charles Darwin University campus add to the atmosphere and help to create a pretty good nightlife for a city of 28,000 residents. Palmerston restaurants are a key part of the local scene and you'll find the best of them right here on Quandoo. It's a good idea to book ahead to make sure of a table in this busy little city.
Mr Sushi on Temple Terrace is typical of the type of atmosphere you'll find in many Palmerston restaurants. Modern and stylish, it's a cool place to eat and attracts a hip crowd from across town and beyond. The focus is on super fresh sushi, including some superbly made hand rolls of tuna, prawn and duck. An excellent lunch menu, meanwhile, offers a choice of California rolls, sashimi or an indulgent deluxe sashimi option.
The bright lights of Darwin may be only 20 km away but sometimes what you really want to do is simply kick back and enjoy a local night out. Restaurants in Palmerston provide the perfect venue for a fun evening with your gang without the hassle of hitting the road to Darwin. Enjoy some classic Aussie grub in a traditional pub, or perhaps something a little more contemporary in a stylish cafe bar. From a substantial dinner to some tapas at the bar, there's something for every taste and appetite.
Being so close to the pristine ocean, it's no wonder that restaurants in Palmerston are able to offer some of the freshest seafood around.

There's so much to choose from and some great new dishes to discover, so take a look at our listings of restaurants in the Palmerston area and book yourself a slice of the action.
