The buffet breakfast has everything you want and well worth it. The dinner menu is lovely with plenty of variety, however I felt was a little over-priced.

I can't fault this hotel... always had an awesome room with amazing views, so close to everything, staff very attentive, rooms are very clean and comfortable. As a local traveler it did annoy me that it took 6 days for the hotel bond on credit card to be released, if you are travelling and staying multiple hotels this is really... More

PK so here is the bottom line. This is a good restaurant if you are staying at the hotel. Not worth seeking out if you are staying elsewhere. The salmon (farm raised I believe) was excellent - ask for sauce on the side. The beef was very good. Service was adequate.

Marvellous meal. Excellent service, lovely French waiter was very helpful. My wife and I both had fish based entree and mains and it was fantastic. Crayfish and scallop entree and grouper main. Hard to fault.

We dined here to farewell some relatives before they headed to South Island on the ferry the next morning. They were leaving early next moring and so we opted for the Dine and Dash menu we often have prior to any show. We regularly eat here as both food and service are reliable and it is very convenient for the... More

Great food. Had booked in advance and arrived on time. Unfortunately, "greeting" staff in the restaurant had poor understanding of English and we had wait for some time before being shown to our reserved table.

Service was very slow with only one other table including ours my mocha took 15 minutes to get to me. Staff were very slow to clear tables we put used plates etc on the table next to us so they could clear at their leisure. The hot food was cold and unappetising. I wanted to try the breakfast here to... More

We received breakfast free when we stayed here which was really good. There was a lot of food although we didn't get to eat much because of the earthquake.
