I've often dined here on specials occasions with my wife and it is always a great experience. The service is always welcoming. The food is delicious and very well presented.

Based on the reviews I had to visit this place while trekking around the South Island. It's a nice place situated upstairs in a restored building (old hotel?) on the fringes of central Invercargill. It has a pretty good atmosphere and the staff are very attentive. The wine list is impressive, especially the cellar selection, and the menu includes pairing... More

Dining at its finest. Attentive staff, including the Chef himself. Delicious meals that left you wanting more. There were a few tables (8) during the night we were there, and a few people in the bar. Two staff that we seen from downstairs, the chef and assistant, and one lady upstairs. The lady was far to busy and often swamped... More

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. The southern water cod was dry, so much of the flavor gone. It was served with Saffron Risotto which was excessively salty I had about 6 glasses of water. I was very disappointed... More
