Main course of Salmon cooked beautifully. However had a sauce which was too strong. Lovely vegetables. Main course of pork belly was of a high standard. Because it was a special occasion we ordered desserts. One of the worst we have had. Special was sponge with fruit and a sauce. Dry and tasteless. Chocolate dessert was poor as well. Was... More

We decided to go for lunch and both chose the Fish of the Day and it was delicious. Raupo has... More

Excellent food, NZ with a french twist. The desserts were fantastic - we had the chocolate cake with the home made marshmallow. After having dinner there we went back the following morning for take away snacks which were also excellent.
