Saturday brunch at Em>Bar>Go a long standing city restaurant. We were greeted by the owner Herbert and made to feel welcome. Followed by pleasant efficient staff in order taking and delivery of bacon and eggs and omelette, both dishes were equal in quality and presentation. Very reasonable cost, overall a most enjoyable experience. Highly recommend.

The service was excellent with attention to our requirements throughout the visit. An excellent range of dishes are available on the menu. Members of our party particularly enjoyed the 'Twice Cooked Duck'with roast kumara,... More

From the minute we walked in the door with someone offering to take our coats to the wines offered and the meals cooked, the whole night was fantastic. The service brilliant and friendly. A great place to spend a cold Autumn night.

Relaxed atmosphere overlooking Garden Place on a sunny day is a wonderful way to enjoy the start of the day. Dine in or outside under the... More

What a great little gem! Recommended by a friend and wasn't diappointed. Stopped in for lunch, the service was prompt and professional, from ordering to arriving at the table was less than ten minutes (good timing on a break). Had the 'sugar lamb' and it was beautiful, coupled with a hot drink the total cost was $19.50 which I think... More

The service was very good and the food superb. I just wish the seats had not been so hard. It was a long night to be uncomfortable.
