“Great food, price and quality.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Visited here on a Saturday night, and had to wait about 30 minutes for a table. It was well worth the wait. The food was really good, nice and hot, and with good flavour.
The mains are well priced, and there is a good range of options.

“Great atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

We went as a large group with 11 adults and 8 kids. Not exactly the easiest table, but the waiter kept smiling and handled the whole night with professional and friendly service throughout. Good atmosphere and the food was nice.

“Nice surrounds, nice staff but food isn't special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Have been here a handful of times, always found the staff to be friendly and professional with the restaurant having a good atmosphere. The food is good, but not really too different to what you might cook at home. Definitely worth a try if you're in Wellington as it may hit the spot for you.

“Beautiful decor and great, FRESH seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We went here for dinner with the family. The prices are moderate and the atmosphere of the dining room is just amazing, beautifully decorated. I had the seafood pasta with fresh prawns, calamari, clams and mussels. The clams and mussels were still in the shells and you could see (and smell) how fresh it was!

We really enjoyed our evening and it is definitely one of the best meals I've had.

“Larger than it looks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We had a pleasant, but slow, dinner here. The staff were nice, but there didn't appear to be enough of them. Food was good and decor interesting.
