Enjoyable lunch.

As we were near Bell Block and I had visited The Eden on a previous visit to New Zealand, my son and myself decided to call in for lunch and although it was busy with all inside tables occupied we had a very enjoyable experience. My fish and chips meal was not at all greasy and the batter could... read more

We visited for lunch yesterday after stumbling across this cafe which I never knew existed. We loved every part of this experience. The young girls/staff were all friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. Its always nice to hear cheery voices and laughter when you're out. They had a great selection of food and the cafe was clean and well... More

Calamari for starters, received 8 pieces which I'm sure we're what I buy frozen from the supermarket and half the plate was salad. Not worth $18 Surfnturf for mains, scotch fillet,prawns,potatoes and veg. The steak was cooked perfectly and was very tender,potatoes were delish, prawns yummy but so small and only got 4! For $32 I expected I few more!... More

This is a mix of East and West. We had takeaway Indian Food plus 3 takeaway Banoffee Pies - Yumm. We phoned up the order and once we arrived the order was ready in about 2 minutes. We had a mix of mild and medium "hotness" - and these were just right

A happy stumble upon really. It didn't look too promising. In a shopping arcade, not exactly shouting about itself: door handle broken, but we were hungry and entered.... Into a little bit of '50's colonial style, complete with roaring fire. I spotted tarakihi fillets with potato and onion rosti, green salad and a lemon and pepper sauce. Darcy spotted chicken...

Went tonight for dinner with friends. Not too busy and were told upfront our waiter was a trainee. Took a while to get drinks sorted out and generally everything took a bit longer than expected. However we were in no hurry and when the meals came (4 curries) was certainly worth the wait. Unknown to is it was $10 curry... More
