Let me start by saying that this is a pretty good restaurant in a popular village outside of Auckland. Overall it ticks all the right boxes but was let down on the day we visited by some sloppy service. It was an early in the week lunch that we had and the restaurant was not busy. Our wine order was the first thing to be mucked up, but was dealt with professionally. There was also a small problem with one of the meals. Nothing major but these things shouldn't happen especially on a slow day. The wait staff also neglected to remove used glasses etc when they were finished with and new drinks brought out. I know it seems a little picky, but these things make the difference between an ok experience and an excellent one. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and generally everything was acceptable. I would go back again.
