Excellent food and service

A real treat to eat at this restaurant, especilly if you have the Flambé menu. Loved it. Great for a special occasion or just a great night out with friends.

We had a great dinner here with friends. The service was perfect, the food very nasty and presented well. Could not fault anything.

Although the menu was slightly more expensive than we would normally pay, it was handy to our motel and what a good decision we made. An excellent meal with good service and the portion sizes made this restaurant good value for the money paid.

Dining experience was fantastic. The flambé prawns were extremely delicious. Very professional services, with a relaxed atmosphere. Definitely returning when I'm next in town.

I stayed at their hotel, so on a rainy night went in for lunch after seeing the ratings. There was nothing very flash about the food or service... Average to be honest..

Great atmosphere and the chateaubriand is one of the best steaks I've eaten in NZ. Was reasonably priced, well lit and comfortable.

We booked here for dinner when we were passing through New Plymouth because it was number 2 on Trip Advisor. The restaurant has a nice feel and atmosphere, but the food was disappointing. I had the roast pork belly with mash potato and vegetables this very much reminded me of a pub meal and nothing special. The meat and crackling... More

Having heard some good things about this restaurant I thought we would give it a go. The food was tasty and the portions were big, if you like potatoes, there were alot of potatoes which left you feeling heavy and struggling to fit in dessert. Other than that the service was lacking and it was not busy at all, only... More
