Beautiful cuisine set in a lovely restaurant based in the gardens of Sunset Resort. We ate here twice when we stayed at the Edgewater and enjoyed stunning meals with a brilliant wine selection. The kiwi chef produced tasty and well presented food making the most of local ingredients. Highly recommended for outstanding food and service.

We arrived late on BBQ night and were well looked after by the restaurant staff even though they were almost closing. This is a really pleasant restaurant, good food and excellent staff.

The meals we had were good but a decided lack of choice if you were not a fish eater. One evening there were only two choices from the both the menu and the chef's blackboard menu. Presentation was good, very little salad garnish, actually very little salad. Absolutely fabulous potato croquette was served with the steak which was the highlight... More

Attached to the Sunset resort. A vast improvement on previous visit. The décor has improved as has the food presentation & quality. The Sunday BBQ improved out of sight. New management is friendly as a are the smiling staff.

Very near to where we stayed anne found it disappointing Service was below par although trying to act like a top notch restaurant. But never asked how the meal or wine was and merely went through the motions of serving without much care. was found the so called called fresh fish tasteless and soggy as if it had been frozen....

I ordered the lamb roll for lunch and a mojito and this was delicious. Dinner was the buffet for $38 which included salad, BBQ steak/ pork/ chicken/ fish, and a... More
