We haven't been here for a while mainly due to our laziness in not booking, and then because of their popularity, arriving without a booking when they are already full. Quite often they will squeeze you in, but sometimes it is just impossible. Fantastic personal service with corresponding fantastic food that can't be beaten. Thanks

Friendly staff and good food in very nice surroundings. You can take your own wine and the restaurant charges corkage. We thought this a better route to take and there is a Pak ’n Save not too far away. Very pleasant staff with the young man, originally from Warrington who has lived in NZ for 10 years, even writing down... More

Went for catch up lunch with a friend. Great service. Had lasagne and bruschetta and both were great. Not too expensive and not overcrowded and noisy like some places

We dined there recently and although the food was pleasant, we found the staff very unfriendly. We have dined at this restaurant a few times in the past and it had always been very good and very busy, the previous time was 12 months ago. This time there was a group of us there on a Saturday evening and there... More

I decided to have my 50th birthday here as I had heard so many good reports from the locals. I was not let down. We had wonderful service, the staff were friendly and attentive. They were even willing to accommodate for my miscalculation of the number coming and added an extra table at very short notice. The food was delightful... More
