Excellent night out at a family event and very special occasion, excellent food and just excellent down friendly service. Thank you for making the evening a fantastic event. Reuban and his team really do go above and beyond in service and presentation.

My go to restaurant in Palmerston North for nice dining and delicious food. only ever let down is the chef cannot get the streak right, always one more cooked then I ask for. However, love it, would definitely recommend it and will continue to go back.

Th service was good as always, and it is a BYO with your own wines adding to the experience. This service i.e. the BYO option is not easily located... More

We wanted a quick cuppa out of the rain and found the service exceptional even though it was new years eve. My companion craved a crepe and they obliged and I had a nice caramel slice. And large pot of tea. Perfect!
