4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Even though small the friendly waiter and the superb food made the whole experience enjoyable. The place was clean and tidy with a great view over the harbour.

“A pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Came for dessert after horrible experience at another establishment and was eased instantly
Selection was wonderful and ambience and service beyond compare
We returned for Lunch and dinner before we left Picton and both times were glad we did.
A perfect place to relax and unwind and have an amazing meal...bonus!
Thanks so much for your hospitality and to die for food!!

“Excellent restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

A few nights after the Seddon earthquakes, this little place was one of the few in Picton humming along like nothing had happened. It was such a haven we went back for breakfast before getting the Sunday morning ferry. Food and service was very good and staff helpful, in fact, in the circumstances, reassuring. Highly recommended is the local fish and chips, but it also has a good menu and wine list.
