We had an early evening meal here one really cold night. Very good service, nice Italian wine. Great shared mussels for a starter and a really nice pizza for a main.

There were 12, 4 grandparents, 4 parents and 4 young grandchildren the celebrate a birthday, and yes we arrived early because of the children.
The staff were knowledgable and attentive.
I had the lamb loin, and it is fair to say that the flavours were amazing. Much credit must be given to the chef.

Great family restaurant. Fish of the day was lovely and fresh. Service was excellent and made our meal all the more enjoyable. Close to museum and walkway.

This restaurant was recommended to me so decided to go over the Queens Birthday weekend.
We went as x2 couples.
I chose the pork belly as a main which wasn't cheap: Korean pork belly, blow torched fillet, kimchi potato soufflé, black bean beans, spicy braised tofu & peppers - $36.
x1 piece of my pork was okay but the other piece was very tough and I was unable to eat it.
We had dessert which was nice enough.
Whilst the service was good this meal didnt have the "wow" factor for me and I expect that if one pays $36 for a meal this should be top notch.
Wouldnt hurry back - sorry!

Very good coffee stop when visiting PukeAriki. Views across the road looking towards the coastal walkway and harbour. Friendly staff who brightened up our day on a wet and rainy morning.
