Good for a quick lunch

Called in here at lunchtime and had the steak and bacon burger - not a minced burger as we expected but a tender juicy slice of steak topped with bacon and other bits and pieces. It was very good, and value for money. Pleasant staff and a lovely setting.

It's always busy on the Coromandel over summer.....but if you"re happy to relax & enjoy the surroundings it's worth the maybe longer then usual wait times (totally expected at this time of year). The food here is wonderful & the staff are friendly. Top class restaurant but not fussy or formal. Loved it......

This is a very nice restaurant having both indoor and outdoor seating. Staff were attentive and friendly and the food was excellent. We particularly recommend the pork ribs.

We had dinner the 2 nights we stayed in Coromandel Town, and it was excellent! One of the best restaurants in New Zealand. The service is quick and charming. The dishes are delicious. We had the green mussels which is huge, and also the lamd, which is the best lamb we had in NZ and the smoked salmon, never had... More

Although the menu is limited it provides sufficient choice for all. The food is of a high quality and nicely presented, the Surf & Turf (excellent steak) is a good bet along with the fish and chips. Recommended.

Typical NZ restaurant in a small town. It has a fairly large menu where you'll find all the Kiwi staples for lunch or dinner including nightly specials. It's only one of 2 places I can recommend in Coromandel Town so I'm sure you'll have a try if your there for more than 1 night. It has outside dining, a bar... More

Beautiful setting thought we would try it. Obviously not expecting too much from the town food wise. Was we wrong! I had the ribs and all I can say is wow. Struggling to think of a time where I have had better. Meat fell off the bones. Mrs had steak and bacon burger. She love it. Gave it an 8... More

The stuff is helpful and welcoming. The food is delicious and filling. The menu is quiet short but anyone can find someone to their liking. Not cheap but it is worth your money!

We recently stopped here for coffee and tea stop. Very friendly and helpful staff. The coffee was ok and I ordered English breakfast tea which could have been a bit stronger. It was a bit weak for me. The waitress suggested biscotti as a small snack, sounded very nice as we didn't want a full dessert cake etc. the biscotti... More
