“Cheerful team, good food, but be prepared to wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Business dinner, table for 8, pre-booked. Took AGES to serve, but couldn't fault the engaging staff and their cheery apologies. Enjoyed the 'fish and chips'; and the Whitebait. All good, recommended.

“Neat and tidy interior, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Whilst I did not dine here during my recent stay, I did have a drink with friends here one night. The interior is clean, tidy, well set out. The service was quick and friendly.

“Not overly exciting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

Went for lunch. Nothing stands out as really bad, but then nothing stands out. An ordinary, average spot. Would go back for the coffee and some of the staff were really good. Some weren't.

“Best in Gisborne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

imho this is the best restaurant in Gisborne for an evening meal. The service is excellent, and the food to die for. Pick of the menu for starters is the ciabatta and hummus - the ciabatta come in little balls, crumbed and deep fried. When you bite into them, you find the hummus in the middle. Yum.
