We chose this restaurant by walking past and seeing the menu, the many awards on the wall, the gorgeous fairy lights and lots of diners (always a good sign). We were quickly welcomed and asked if it was a special occasion. The menu was fully explained to us by a waitress who was obviously a professional, and well trained in... More

We had dinner there 2 days ago with my parents in law to celebrate their 51 wedding anniversary. Debbie, our host, was really kind and knowlegeable about the menu and the wine. The food was a pure delight. Crayfish, salmon and beef was cooked to perfection. The presentation was amazing. Deserts was devine. Adults and kids had a wonderful evening.... More

We found the serving staff personable and the steaks delicious. The pricing was a bit more than some of the downtown Mount Maunganui restaurants, but only slightly. Would definitely go there again.

We dropped into this restaurant in early evening and were treated to real a gourmet meal. The food was imaginative, well priced and beautifully served. There was a good selection of seafoods and award winning meats. The atmosphere in the early evening sunshine was lovely and as the light faded we enjoyed the intimate lighting. Staff were polite, efficient and... More

We booked into this restaurant for our anniversary dinner. We had a covered outdoor window table with a view of Mount Maunganui. During our meal we watched two Cruise Ships leave the harbour lights blazing. The restaurant was light with vine lights and lovely table LED lights lent a very romantic atmosphere to the scene. Our entree was flambeed at... More

Not very welcoming but no fault with the food. A bit pricy perhaps but value for money as top quality. Wine by the glass a bit pricy also but quite generous glass size. No soap in men's loo (at beginning of evening) but remedied once drawn to their attention.

We were looking for somewhere special and were not disappointed. Great menu and wine selection, with very informed staff. We ordered a fish platter to start which looked fantastic and was delicious. My husband had the salmon for main and I chose the duck. The salmon was stunning, unfortunately my duck was over done and hard, but was quickly taken... More

Make no mistake, the food is divine. Fresh. Delicious. Innovative. World-class. To wit, our starters were the seafood 'sword', which is a stack of fish and shellfish skewered on a sizeable sword/skewer. Each chunky piece was cooked to perfection, not even slightly overdone. The two sauces were delicate complements to the tender seafood making the whole dish delectable and memorable.... More
