We ate at this restaurant this weekend on our first visit to Pauanui encouraged by the good reviews we had read. The service was excellent in that the serving personnel were most friendly and accommodating. However, serving a drink in a glass cracked from top to bottom is not a good look.
Food was served in good time, with a smile, and was reasonably priced. We had prawns and fettucine and a meat injection pizza. The pizza earns the title of the worst pizza I have ever eaten. Not only was the base burnt black around the edge the thick combination of sauces and pineapple rendered the meat impossible to taste. The fettucine similarly suffered from a citrus sauce which was inappropriate. We did notice another table with a pizza left almost untouched.
There is not much choice of eateries in Pauanui so maybe this is why the takeaway bar next door was so extremely popular. I do not know whether the cook is in a 'sweet taste' phase or an experimental phase but our limited experience would suggest it is not working.
