Chef Guillame’s new restaurant will delight your taste buds with French brasserie dishes.

Palmier by Guillaume Galliot is bringing more culinary excellence to Bangkok. Located at Four Seasons Hotel on the Chao Phraya River, the restaurant offers guests a taste of traditional French brasserie cuisine.

Chef Guillaume draws inspiration from his childhood, as the menu takes guests on a journey through his memories and family traditions.

Koktail tasted these mouth-watering dishes at a pre-opening lunch. The culinary delights included baked escargots with garlic butter, oyster platters, classic Australian Waygu beef tartare, pate en croute with pickles and mixed salad, and Boston lobster with parmesan gnocchi, sautéed mushrooms, and mint emulsion. There was also a wide variety of colourful desserts, including fondant au chocolat and baba au rhum. After lunch, Chef Guaillaume sat down and told us how his childhood helped shape his cooking.

Growing up in his family, food was not simply for eating, but to make everyone happy all the time, he said.

“Some food is really classic. Like beef tartare for example is something that my father used to make himself. Because you have raw egg yolk, as a kid you say really? So it’s a bit different when you are a kid, and then you learn to appreciate it.”

While indulging in the menu, guests can also experience an expansive French wine list. They can have a glass while enjoying the views from the riverfront terrace.

“All the dishes that we are cooking we are trying to match each dish with a wine, that’s for sure. Wine is passion for me as well, we have to keep going on that,” Chef Guillaume said. 


The brunch menu will feature a selection of small plates and a roasted meat of the day, accompanied by socialising in the restaurant's bar or riverfront terrace. Brunch was important to Guillaume when he was growing up, he said.  

“On the weekends when I went to my grandfather’s house, or during Christmas, there was always a huge brunch. You start at 12, you finish at 6pm. You start to clean and cook for the dinner. I really care about brunch and eating well because it was very important back in the day when I was a kid.”

Chef Guillaume hopes that guests will discover perfectly prepared food at his restaurant.

Palmier by Guillaume Galliot is set to open doors on April 26, welcoming guests from Tuesday to Sunday for lunch between 11:30am and 2:30pm, with brunch available on Sundays, and for dinner from 6pm to 10:30pm. The inaugural Sunday brunch will take place on 19 May, and every Sunday thereafter.
