“Little Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

What an unexpected treat to discover this wonderful restaurant. It was truly one of the top meals I had on my travels in the month I spent in New Zealand. Lovely food, service and wines. I would be a regular if it were in my city.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My husband and I came here on a quiet Monday night. We got great service and wonderful meals.
We shared the duck pâté was one of the best we've tried. I had the duck main and my husband had the venison both our meals were cooked to perfection.
A lovely place, can't wait to go back!
