“Sometimes good, sometimes awful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

Had brunch here 3x lately - first 2 lovely meals, but this Saturday was some of the worst food I've had. Both our meals were drowned in sauce, poorly presented, sloppily cooked. Really disappointing.

“Unexpectedly brilliant food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2011

A group of us were staying in Westport for the night. We arrived late but they accommodated us all despite being busy. We ordered a range of different things from the menu and and not one of us was disappointed. I ordered the lamb steaks which you cook yourself on a hot stone and it was probably the best lamb I tasted on my entire trip to New Zealand. If you are in Westport then go to this place.
