We wanted a nice warm place to have lunch before we went to the airport. We both chose Fish and Chips and had a few glasses of wine, and a shared dessert but we were still surprised by the bill. However, the food was well cooked and presented although the servings were quite large for us. Lovely service and the... More

I have had mixed experiences here but last night was the worst ever. Rude, arrogant staff who had better things to do than serve us. Food took ages to come out -we had bar snacks so why do it take over 1/2 hour for them? They weren't busy. The food was poor. I'm a local and I won't be going... More

Visited this place for dinner. Seating was very good, it wasn't busy so the waitress seated us away from the other diners giving all patrons privacy (sometimes they pack you all together so we appreciated this). The meals were very good, portion size was excellent (no, we really didn't need the entre's). Service was also friendly and our orders arrived... More

The service is appalling, the food is ok for the type of eatery that it is but don't go hungry as you will wait ages for service and then equally as long for your food to arrive. We've been a few times and thought one more time and that sealed it. Won't be going back

Food was over priced and small portions and slowest service i have seen other people just left. I recommend going across the road to lone star.

Popped in for a light meal before the movies. Waited awhile with 2 other couples to be seated, one couple left! They weren't that busy. Looked like they were short staffed. Got a seat explained what time we needed to leave and if that wld be fine, they said shld be fine. Took awhile for our order to be taken,... More

Finding a suitable restaurant for an Asian visitor who wanted to eat "steak", on a Saturday night proved harder than I expected so this was phone call number 5. (I prefer to eat Asian or "modern NZ" than your basic steak). However the ambience alone more than satisfied my guest. She was quite taken with the numerous stuffed & mounted... More

Uniquely wild NZ themed, this place is a surprising oasis of good taste in the middle of a rather cheeky commercial area. I travel and try a lot of restaurants, my girl friend doesn't like going out and my ten year old is extremely fussy with his food. Yet we all loved it here! Enough said?

Food passable, nothing flash rather expensive for fish and chips one could get down the road. Basic setting for the rugby booze crowd.

I wrote a review on the ribs quite some time ago, titled 'best ribs in town'. Very, very sadly my opinion has changed. Dry as bones, very little sauce and not the generous portion I remembered. Greatly disappointed. And as I paid the full price - around $34 I think (I have had a 'special' price on occasion) it was... More
