George had vouchers for our favourite restaurant so decided to bring Marlene to sample the excellent food. And it didn't let us down. Thoroughly enjoyed the best bottle of Pinot Even tried dessert which was a bit of a let-down but the evening was a good one.

Influenced by very high TA reviews we had high expectations of a memorable dining experience. We both chose the lamb dish main, at $43 p.p,which comprised small portions artistically presented but accompanied only by nice jus and wafer chips - no greens at all ! With minimal service, our lasting impression was that the overall meal quality and enjoyment did... More

We had a group of nine for dinner and everyone enjoyed well presented main meals that were generous in size. Desserts were stunning. Friendly efficient service and pleasant decor.

We took a gamble at picking this place. But wow! what a meal. This was by far the best steak meal ever tasted in New Zealand be it North or South, so far! I would say this has to be in my top three steak meals ever tasted around the world!! We will certainly recommend this restaurant to all our... More

Service was very tentative and the food was absolutely fab, tasty and beautifully presented. This is a fine dining experience but well worth it.

Nero's had been highly recommended to us & we didn't get let down. Busy night but food & service were absolutely 1st class. Duck Pate was to "die for", Short Rib's "fell off the bone", desserts "delectable"! Lovely ambiance & friendly staff. We will tell everyone what a great dining experience we had & we'll definitely be back.

Good food but felt a little squished where we were! Just a table for two but it wasn't too bad. I got a steak and it was bloody awesome!

Had the prawns for starter. $18 for 3 prawns with no garnish and half a grilled lemon which had every bit of juice fried out of it. Interesting. Mains was the steak which was really good, the partners mains of fish was tasty too. Desserts were overly complicated. I had the creme brûlée, which should be just a creme brûlée.... More
