I have visited several times and tried various menu items including steak sandwich, chicken burger and fish n chips. The food is very tasty and good quality and portion size is satisfying. Kumara chips are really nice and crispy. The waitstaff still seem quite inexperienced...More

This is quite a nice place to eat although the table we sat at could have done with a fan as it was a booth with no air flow, so was a bit warm. The food was very good and well presented. The owners had...More

Nice food and friendly prompt service. Reasonably priced fare with a good choice to cover all tastes. Always worth visiting when we are in the Far North.

We went here for dinner and we all left a little disappointed and hangry. They managed to muck up the orders and the fish was from frozen and watery. Chips were ok and service was good. A shame the kitchen let it all down.

The food here is delicious and generous portions. I have tried a few different meals. Has new owners now but will keep the staff and menu apparently. Only downside is food takes a while to arrive. Decor could be brightened up a bit.

Great location and setting. The waiter was very polite and helpful. We were advised that there would be a 30 to 40-minute wait (though we would not see more than 3 other tables dining and none of those tables were large). However, we agreed to...More

Dinner out after the movies. Great, fresh food. Decent sized helpings. Everyone was happy. Excellent service. Wait staff was too keen when taking plates away, could wait until everyone was finished. Nice wine and beers. Excellent evening. We will be back.
