Nice place to share a glass of wine at the end of the day with some platters to share. The food is really good and you can find whatever you want in the wine list.

Food was absolutely delicious... Service was friendly. Atmosphere was great... They also have a great selection of local and imported wines to suit your meals. Well worth a look at as a couple or as groups

We weren't quite as taken by this eatery as some other reviewers. The dining room is a little stark and cold (it was pretty dreadful weather and no doubt sitting outside in the sun would have left us with a different impression).

Scotch is like something out of Spain with a New Zealand twist. Ordered the Meat Plat & Clams which I'd happily enjoy again. Staff were friendly, gave good recommendations and were helpful in selecting a flavoursome wine. A+
