This was touted by our hotel as "the place in town" for dinner. The place is super cute and the service very friendly but the food doesn't cut it. There are way too many ingredients in everything. If they would just pare it down a bit and rely on the good quality of the New Zealand ingredients they could do so much better. We have been in NZ for 11 days and this was the most lack luster meal yet. The bones are there, but they need to work on the end result.. For example the salad was swimming in dressing, the meat over cooked - despite their asking us how we wanted it, the duck was tough and way too cooked. It felt like they were trying too hard.
