Stumbled across this while out for a stroll just after arriving in New Plymouth for a weekend. It stands comparison with its counterparts in Akl or Wtn. Quirky atmosphere, good food selection and quality. Excellent drinks menu and really friendly staff made this a memorable evening

We visited on what was a very busy night which I do understand but unfortunately we found the food to be well below average and would not go again because of this. We ordered two mains and one tapas and everything came with huge bowls of fries. I had pork belly which was the strangest pork belly I have ever... More

Service was friendly. Food was adequate. Nothing to rave about. We used a first table voucher so our food was half price which made it more worthwhile. Sliders were okay. Chicken tacos - not great. But the pork belly was pretty good.

We had the mushrooms, chicken tacos, prawns, pork sliders, and pork belly. Out of those I would highly recommend the prawns and pork sliders. The chicken tacos were more like chicken on a large Dorito. John,... More

Absolutely beautiful meal and wonderful staff, meals are good value for money. The open mic nights is always a hoot, This place is a real asset to New Plymouth. Even the owner is a great bloke and spends a lot of time there mingling

The service was friendly and good. The food was well presented but quality and taste, especially of main dishes, needs improvement.

I came in on Friday 26th August for a few cocktails with my friends for my birthday. The staff and manager were very welcoming and even gave me my first drink on the house! The espresso martini I ordered was absolutely amazing and when I ordered a mojito they even made it sweet or sour to my liking. I would... More

Early evening so not too busy. We could have stayed longer as it was an unhurried very enjoyable meal.
