“Just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We went here with some friends to relax and unwind after the Rotorua Marathon. Although the food tasted good and a good size portion was served, I did feel the food was a bit overpriced for the place, the decor, the service, and the food. Although I did think the drinks list was reasonaby priced. While 3 of the staff seemed to be pretty on to it, one of the staff seemed to have a chip on her shoulder - just looked like she didn't want to be there. We almost felt like she was thinking we were some 'houtie toutie Jaffa's (Aucklander's for those who don't know!). She was rather surly in answering our questions about the menu, and forgot to get us a carafe of water even we had asked twice. Besides her, the evening was ok, but could have been made more enjoyable by a few tweaks here and there.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We visited this place a few months back and the food was great and it seems to have gone downhill, their prices were abit expensive and although most of the staff were helpful. Their definition of a cooked meat is very different to what others may think, we asked for medium cooked lamb and a medium/rare steak and both arrived under cooked, we sent the meat back and still came back half cooked, the rest of the meal was ok, but the arrival of food was also abit long.

“Slow service and overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Food took very long to arrive - waited 70 minutes! Prices were very high (average $35+ and portions were quite small - so this does not present good value for money). Food tasted ok.
