Friendly staff, good service. Love the location in The Octagon and great being able to sit outside if the weather is right. Nice food at a reasonable price.

My husband and I stopped in late on a Sunday evening. My husband ordered the Scotch fillet and I had a chicken open face sandwich with aioli, brie, tomato and bacon. We both enjoyed our meal. Service was efficient and the atmosphere in the restaurant is family friendly.

We had an okay meal and drinks here. It was a very standard pub type meal but was pricey for what it was

Wandered into this place and to be honest we were a bit dubious about it,but it was great. They have a stone grill option on the menu and we had this, the meat portions were very generous as were the fries and salad that came with it. The staff were really friendly and efficient and overall it was very good... More

The food and cider was really nice. I had pork belly and the meat was beautiful, but the top was not done differently to moral and tasted OK but lacked something. My wife enjoyed the stonegrill. Service was good.

Just stopped whilst wandering to find somewhere to eat and watch world go by, struck gold here. Sat on outside table on pavement of the octagon sipping a delicious latte and the breakfast (bacon and eggs) was just right. Cheerful dude behind the bar and great area of the city to relax

Stopped off for a quick drink on a rainy day. The waitresses didn't seem to be in any rush, but I discovered that this was the way in NZ, just a lot more laid back. Lovely bar and I can imagine that it is one of the places to be in the evening.
