A group of us ended up at Stella on a pub crawl, expecting to move on but stayed for the rest of the evening. The place was hopping but we were welcomed and made our way to a quiet section where we ate pizzas and assorted delicacies such as scallops and little spring rolls. Lovely and filling. No one minded... More

Agree with other reviewers, good atmosphere and good pub food, a little bit underwhelming but made up for by the atmosphere and staff.

Stellar has a pleasant atmosphere for a casual restaurant and bar. The staff are friendly and we had a good platter of breads and dips. Some of their food is good but the pizza is a huge disappointment. The bases are oily and the topping is uninspired. It is not hard to make much better pizza yourself at home.

My wife and I ate here for dinner based on a recommendation from Aotea Motor Lodge and the Stellar doesn't pretend to be something it's not. It offers hearty meals, think lamb shank, veges and mash or large chicken parmigiana and salad, and a range of beers on tap including a locally made brew. The beers came out quick but... More

A group of us went to a concert at stellar and indulged in alcoholic beverages and Pizza. The Pizza was waaaay overpriced and the base was undercooked. We got 4 pizzas at a cost of $20 each. They were nice considering the price.

Wow! Well done Stellar. Last night you served 13 of us a great 3 course dinner. Our food arrived in good time. Everyone's plates looked great and size of the meals made everyone's eyes light up. The comments around the table were 'yum, this is great, try this etc ' The only complaint was too many boiled potatoes. My meal... More

I have been here a couple of times and really enjoy the food. Great flavours, decent sizing and good choices. On this occasion the restaurant was full, but they found room for us in their back room. Not quite as cozy as being in the front but the company was good so that wasn't a problem. I do think the... More

We held a fundraising quiz at Stellar on Friday night. What an awesome night! Pete was a fantastic host and a great time was had by all. Bar snacks and coffees were arriving to table's quickly and everything was well organised. We hardly had to do anything, Pete made it so easy for us, organising to raffle off some items... More
