“Consistently delicious food and warm service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

This restaurant has been a Greytown stalwart for over 10 years, with chef Travis Clive-Griffin at the helm.
They have fabulous coffee, well-trained staff, comfortable surroundings, a great local wine list, great food...What more can I say?
There are outdoor tables under the oaks for summer, a deck to catch the late afternoon sun, and cosy seating areas for inside.
They were in the Cuisine Top 10 Restaurants in NZ; then down-shifted to provide more tapas-style food.
Regardless of what they do, this place is a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike.

“They could do a lot better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

The food is not changing a lot. After visiting a couple of times you know the tricks of the trade. The chef is very good

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

OK, I am going to go against the trend here and say I was disappointed. Not with the food, very nice but the price of $34 for a main - way too steep I think for the country and only 4 mains to choose from (yes there was pizza and tapas also but I don't count them as 'mains').
