We dined here over Easter weekend with our family (girls 11 and 13). There was a good choice on the menu and the wine list; the maitre'd made helpful suggestions and the food was delicious. The girls thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere and service, and so did we. The open fire, and pleasant lighting made for a... More

We ate here on the 23rd and was the best restaurant meal we have eaten in our 3 weeks. Honest flavors. Great service as well.

The Last Post is my favourite local restaurant as I always know I'm in safe hands. Great atmosphere, a hearty, innovative menu, good wines, friendly, professional service and good value. Keep doing what you do.

We had a meal here on the last weekend of My Hutt season. The atmosphere was as good as last time with open fire and attentive staff. I ordered the steak - which was excellent. My companions had the baked cambembert which was delicious and they loved the pork ribs. The wine list was good and we had a decent... More

I dined there twice with my young son. He enjoyed his kid's ribs so much that he wanted to go back. Overall, good food, good service, cold beer, fair value.

Great burgers, wedges breads, beer, coffee; well prepared, quick, courteous service, comfortable seating. I prefer more light than customary for reading but a staff member came and redirected a light over my table

The restaurant is ideal for couples and families. The low lighting and calming music go it a nice atmosphere for couples, but there are plenty of options for little picky eaters. Like most restaurants in New Zealand, food can be expensive, but this place is definitely worth trying. Highlight: Very relaxing, with good food Lowlight: the low, orange lighting can... More

I visited this restaurant with a couple of friends. It has a nice feel with the open fire. I was not quite sure about the menu, I could not decide what to have as none of the menu items really appealed to me. I ended up having the pork scallopini which was pleasant but not mind blowing. I was not... More
