“intimate and delish!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

We had dinner here on New Year's Eve and it was amazing! The risotto, filet, and wine were divine and the service was personal. It's small, so don't plan on spreading out, but worth the squeeze!

“Nothing A Problem - Catered For Dietary Requirements”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Young, vibrant staff couldn't have been more helpful at this wonderful almost waterfront restaurant.

Providing a meal for my son's gluten-free wasn't a problem at all and they dished up delicious meals - try the Lamb, it's delicious! (Not to mention the beautiful complimentary bread)

High class meals that are great value.

Suggest you book so you don't miss this Akaroa delight.
