We went out as a group of ten for a friend's birthday. As soon as we walked in we noticed the chef say some bad language about our large group turning up, then the waiter had a dig at us not pre booking (even though the place was very quiet). This, of course didn't make us feel welcome.The food took... More

We were here about three years ago, so we decide to go again just to check if it was still as good as we remembered... run out of words to describe it! Just outstanding. Pork belly is a jackpot and lamb it's delicious! We'll be going to WE! Every time we come back to New Zealand, and probably we'll be... More

We had the lamb which was sensational, generous proportions, really tasty passion fruit brûlée tart. Loved the meal. Service by the young waitress could have been better.

The waitperson was welcoming and seated us, then got us water and took drinks orders. we ordered some breads for each table... More

Between us, we had fish, a steak and a lamb medley. Each dish was delicious and the quality of a city restaurant. Not cheap but worth the price(s).

Went for dinner on a "quiet" Hanmer night, seemed to be only 2 staff working in the whole place but a second waitress appeared not long after we arrived, which was lucky. Waited a long time for drinks and the wait staff didn't appear to be well trained. I ordered the "customers favourite" which was supposedly twice cooked pork belly... More

We have been in Hanmer a good few months now and decided to try the food at this establishment. I had the spicy rice balls that was a delicious dish and you got a nice portion size. My partner went for the fillet steak and said it was the best fillet he has had in a long time, since we've... More

We wandered past "WhatEver" on a Saturday night and it was packed so decided to come nice and early on Sunday night. As it turned out the Sunday night was quiet and we had our choice of tables. We started with the crocodile and prawn spring rolls which were delicious and just a little bit different. The boss had pork... More
