Wow! A quiet little charmer - do not miss out on their $19 steaks! More than worth it in this tourist town, great vibe and atmosphere. Get in early to get a seat!

We arrived at 2pm for late lunch. Order at the bar and waited 50minutes for the steak and eggs Benedict. There were several people before us to get served so no problem. The problem was the lack of honesty from the staff when we asked why the delay: "the steak takes longer to get done" we were told. The open... More

Great choice of beers in this quaint bar. Nice location with water views. The 3 hour roasted beef sandwich was delicious and really reasonable at $9.50. Their mulled wine was nice too. Definitely give it a go.

This tiny bar had a great atmosphere and even better beer Try the Kea IPA if you like a hoppy brew. The food was excellent and not overpriced. Their steaks are justifiably renowned.

I was recommended Atlas for a warm-up after a boat trip but before a flight to Milford Sound. What a great recommendation. I enjoyed a hot chocolate and was tempted by a breakfast which just hit the spot and was very reasonable. I did call back that evening as I was recommended the steak however it was very busy so...
