I have been here a few times the beef schnitzelis good with the mushroom sauce even better but 300gm is just too big. Tonight I had the prawn cocktail which was as advertised old fashion ie prawns on a lettuce leave with thousand island dressing which I doubt was made on site. Then the ceasar once again size was good... More

We called in, exhausted after a long day of walking and were welcomed despite our somewhat bedraggled appearance. We ended up staying and having the nicest fish and chips I've ever eaten.

Came on for a late lunch. Ordered beef and chicken burgers. They were oily, bland, tasteless. Could have been an off day but would not go here again. Not recommended.

Attended as part of a large group, our orders were taken nice and quickly, and were frequently offered drinks. Chicken filo is to die for, and everything the others ordered looked lovely too. Massive portions, good value for money. Friendly and efficient staff.

Ok so I was not expecting to be in Dunedin on this trip to NZ, we ended up there after a flight debacle. We had one night in the hotel right next door so this seemed the obvious place for a coffee and breakfast before we hit the road again. I ordered the big Dog breakfast, my wife a two... More
