Spent some time choosing this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Great friendly and polite welcome with excellent food matched by quality service. On the list to go again.

Quite good mains, interesting wine selection, rather disappointing desserts and poor service. Not a bad experience but the place remains quite a long way of the place it pretends to be. Nice building from outside, a bit less from inside. central location.

If you are looking for great service and fine dining, this is the spot! New Zealand restaurants don't have the best service (probably because tipping is not customary) but they had the best service imaginable! My husband and I shared the seafood platter for 2...More
