We were walking past and had not seen this place before. There were a couple of other groups of people already dining. Both the food and customer service was amazing. We will be back

We were with a group of friends and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Timely food and beverage arrival and all arrived exactly as ordered. None of our table of eight had a negative comment. This is a great local restaurant that we never tire of visiting!

The best thing about this restaurant is that the meals are always of a consistently high quality. As a fairly frequent diner there, I have always enjoyed my meals there. One of the few places I've been where you always have a great dining experience.

The place is lovely decorated. The staff were good. The food was ok!! The usual children's menu, no veggies!! The main menu was ok, but I found there was no salads on offer. My husband had the lamb shanks, there were ok. Not sure the mash potato was real, looked as though it was from a packet. They couldn't offer... More

By far the best restaurant in New Plymouth. They have an excellent menu and the staff are fabulous. Visitors definitely have to try their big breakfast. Great start to the day.

A very welcoming place, we come every week for the quiz. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. They make an effort to know you (name and drinks) and are genuinely interested in the customer. The food is good and the atmosphere is second to none that I have experienced in New Plymouth. We love coming here for the quiz,... More

My hubby & I were impressed with the set up of a toy box for the children that were there with others and how the kids meals came out first so the adults could enjoy their own meal uninterrupted - great idea! Take a good appetite - hubby had the big breakfast and it sure was! I had the crumbed... More
