Still great!

I was last here 2 years ago and 1-2 years before that. I don't know if the owners are the same but I do know the quality of food and service is the same. Great!

The service was good, but was left a little disappointed with the fillet steak dinner, a small piece of steak the size of a hockey puck, 6 green beans and a small bowl of soggy chips. Management did only charge for half of the meal at the end. Really not sure if we would go back again.

A very popular place in Kerikeri that is warm with friendly staff. I ordered a Vietnamese pork belly sandwich which was very tasty. My wife had a Thai butternut and pumpkin soup and a citrus slice after that and she thoroughly enjoyed her lunch. Highly recommended for the professional presentation and food, but at a cost.

Beautiful location and decorations. The staff are very attentive and the menu looked great. I was ultimately a little disappointed by the small portion sizes and price.

A great place to dine, breakfast, lunch, dinner or just coffee & a catchup with mates. A simple menu with fabulous specials. A beautiful indoor/outdoor environment that's kid & dog friendly. Superb service from a lovely accommodating staff.

The first thing you notice here is the gardens which create a lovely entrance. There is a good choice of food and we have never had a meal which we haven't thoroughly enjoyed.
