“Good fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Pleasant staff, nice food, and the night we were there there was live music, augmented by a wandering group of horn-playing minstrals, which was a bonus.

“Please hire a new chef”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

I had the most doughy spring roll in my life! The venison was dried and over cooked. The roasted pork belly was tasty, but the skin was not crispy. The salad was eatable. I think this is a Bar who want to be a Resturant.

“good food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

was a bit disappointed they had run out of tuna, & they didnt know what glass cognac is supposed to be served in.
the service was good & the food we did order was quite nice. it certainly seemed the best option in the octagon, & we wernt upset with out choice at all.

“Bit Expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

but nice ambience, the food is really nice and the service is good.

T.V's are around if you want to just have a drink and watch a game of cricket etc.

Situated in the Octagon Square the Wifi is good and free.
Certainly worth a visit.

“Fair place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We had lunch in this restaurant that is in The Octagon and they have a very good lunch (and brunch) menu where the mains will cost you around 18.90 NZD with generous portions and a very good service. You can seat outside or inside as there plenty of space. You can get free wifi (actually it is a service you can get in the whole Octagon area).
