Two nicely cooked steak meals and drinks in shady outdoor verandah area with fans. Well-spaced tables. Friendly bar staff. Nice local open-air venue for cool drinks Mainly self-contained local clientele. Near Palmerston shopping centre.

If you just got bored at home and want to have a night out with family and kids, this place is a good choice. It's got a large dining area, kids room, play area/machines and bar. It's very family and kids friendly. The food prices are reasonable and the quality is good. The place is tidy and clean. They've also... More
