Went on a Tues expecting it to be quiet - it was 3/4 full!. charges are $30 for 2 course or $35 for 3 which is excellent value. The portions are good, as is the service for such a busy place.

We tried this restaurant last night after a day out, and were pleasantly surprised at the ambiance and the food. It is very much like a restaurant from the past, with white table cloths and cloth napkins. Often when we dine out, my husband is frustrated by the lack of choices on the menu that he would like. He is... More

This place is very quaint and we experienced a most wonderful meal although the service to the table could be improved. While we didn't have to wait for our food the bar/drinks service was slow. All meals were very nicely presented and very tasty and enjoyable. Certainly worth a visit, you will enjoy I am sure.

While in town we celebrated an early birthday for our daughter. What a lovely experience. They asked her name and spelling when we booked and we had personalised menus when we arrived with happy birthday written on top. Third time we have gone when in the region and delighted each time

If there was anything to complain about it would be the "pedestrian" wine list. Otherwise, simply prepared and presented very good food at attractive prices ($35 for 3 courses). Service is pleasant but generally somewhat inexperienced. All in all………A solid performance and deserving of a return visit.

We turned up without an appointment and were seated and eating in a very short time. Lovely food and service. I love the old style building . The meal was lovely and fast!

Have dined here three times. Recently Enjoyed a nice meal with a group of friends. Fantastic food at a very reasonable price. But staff appear inexperienced and overworked. Early in the meal, a waitress knocked a full glass of red wine, and had no idea what to do next. We cleared the plates and cutlery, rolled the cloth, and eventually... More

After advice to book ahead we had a very good meal that worked at every level. First we need to commend the two wait staff who covered the full restaurant of over 80 diners - preparing all drinks and serving efficiently and with warmth. The atmosphere in the classic New Zealand villa was humming but the furnishings meant conversation at... More

We had a nice set dinner. $ 30 for 2 courses and $ 35 for 3 courses. The food was very good. Tasted like home cooked food and it was nice presented. It is not a Gourmet Restaurant, but I can recommend it.
