We were in Invercargill for the Bluff Oyster Festival and wanted to do something special for dinner. The food was incredibly good, excellent service, beautiful decor - we were all so pleased with our meals from entrees to dessert- and had the perfect evening!

The food was scrumptious and the staff were very friendly and attentive. 3 of us ordered the oysters and they were BIG and crispy.1 person ordered a steak dish and said it was great too.

A lovely restaurant, with a friendly lady doing all bar and service work. The food was a much lower standard than I expected for the high price.

A local friend dragged us out to this place down the other end of town. Looking at the exterior and the musty old house smell in the door did not hint at the evening of culinary delights we would experience. Great to experience such awesome, knowledgeable and courteous staff. The wine list was excellent and the food was perfection, worth... More
