Had the best experience - really friendly and helpful staff member took our order and even got our dog some water. The food was sensational and very reasonably priced. We travel from Devonport to Queenstown regularly and this is now our dinner stop.

Excellent meal of local fish and chips. The gluten free option my partner had was fantastic. Just a little overcooked. Very friendly staff. We were lucky to get a table it is so popular. Many locals eating here which is a good sign.
