Excellent service, decor, but found the food a little (not quite bland), but not really leap out at you.

Fantastic Meals, atmosphere and service. A second time visit for 2 of us ( last visit was in 2013) and we recommended it to our friends. We were certainly not disappointed! The pate was delightfully presented- best we'd ever had and all the other entries and mains could not be faulted. Thank you!

A very nice restaurant right in the heart of New Plymouth over looking the ocean, the food was very good and the service was fantastic, it wasn't very busy when we arrived so the meals were very prompt coming out, each course came out together, there was five of us and we all had different meals.

We had breakfast with family who were visiting New Plymouth. My husband and I were a little disappointed with the pancakes but the rest of the family thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The services was excellent. The coastal views from our table were wonderful. And yes we would go again
