“Great value and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Went for dinner and decided we would order desert after the main meal. Huge fresh meals with great flavour and excellent friendly Kiwi service. No room for desert but we were so impressed we went back for what turned out to be an awesome breakfast. The servings are HUGE, the value is GREAT, and the staff and wonderful genuine people. If you want a great value fresh meal for the whole family without all the pretentiousness of fine dining it is definitely worth a visit. We will absolutely go back even if it was just for the awesome coffee.

“Ok meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

While this is definitely not a fine dining restaurant the food is good and there is heaps of it. The menu is really extensive and if you couldn't find something you liked then you would be very hard to please. The meals are good value and good beverage list.
Great meals for a hungry kiwi bloke.
The plane is very interesting and well worth a look through.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

The service was slow although they do a good goat curry when available. Not bad value for money though

“Evening dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Party of Three for dinner. The restaurant was quite cold. We were seated by a window which made it even worse. The service was pleasant. The food was what we could of had at home. a good homestyle meal, lacked any real presentation and flair. Helpings were reasonable. My main problem was no provisions made for the gluten free diner. Told "they could leave off the gravy". Had to sit and watch fellow diners eat dessert because no gluten free option here either. While it was a pleasaant evening I probably wouldnt go again.

“Lunch Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

A spur of the moment stop on our way to Blenheim. The Seafood chowder was our choice, and it would be one of the best Chowders I have ever had. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back..
