This place looks wonderful, and our waiter was very friendly and efficient. My main of fish which was basically just the fish with fresh peas, was half inedible. Peas were revolting as most were so underdone that they were raw. So an expensive main that...More

The food, staff & service were amazing. Hubby & I had an amazing night. Hubby had the Beef & I had the fish & both dishes were absolutely beautiful. The Oysters were so beautiful & the deserts were amazing as well.

Love this restaurant! Food was great! Recommend the Hapuka, passion fruit souffle, mussels, etc. My family of 6 loved everything. The service was a bit slow and waitress should have brought out salad first before main dish.
