Great service, great food, great staff. We were in a bit of a hurry for dinner and they really looked after us well. So much so we went back later that night for a drink and snack. Definitely worth a visit! Try to read all the info boards if you're interested in the history of Alice May.

... of well-cooked food.
The service was excellent with a personable waitress.
The wine list was somewhat limited with surprisingly few local wines. However the wines were very reasonably proced.
Prices for the food were also reasonable

Fantastic night. Love Alice Mays. This was my 2nd time. Service fantastic both times. Good food. Always nicely cooked and presented well. Std kiwi fare, good size portions, not gourmet but nice wholesome food. However would recommend the monk fish & Arancini balls. Beautiful!! If your into garlic bread theirs is really good. Just love the story of Alice May. Never heard that part of NZ history before so really interesting and just added to the fab dining experience. Thanks for a lovely night.
