“A little gem tucked away....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

We were on business and taken to this restaurant by friends - last minute booking which was fine - it was a Monday night so no problem. The food was divine and service very attentive and not intrusive. Would love to go back soon.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

The restaurant is tucked off the main road a short walk from where we were staying and highly recommended and boy we wasnt disappointedfood and service was good even when we were served a corked wine that was in a screw top bottle the staff were very professional in dealing with it to their credit and didnt ruin our meal. The menu is good and choice wide, we had to very good meals here during our stop in Christchurch.

“Good food you should book.”

Decided to go on a Friday night and it was very busy service a little slow food good. Nice decor is around the corner from everything in Merivale but it is worth the little walk to it

“Hiding secret”

Worth the twenty steps from the other generic café on the corner- amazing food which was presented beautifully and staff who knew what customer service was meant to be-friendly chatty and informative.
