“We were impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Finding a place to eat that has a couple of GF options is one thing, but finding somewhere that has standard GF options (and other allergies) was a delight. Having tasted average food and also food that is made with complexity, skill and passion, we found this food to be up there in terms of quality and taste. The starter chicken nibbles were a taste explosion in our mouths and plenty for the both of us - superb. Steak and chicken cooked to perfection. The drinks were made spot on and the iced coffees the following day were sublime on a hot summer's day. You can feel the genuine "niceness" of the people who work here, going out of their way to make you feel important and looked after. Having read some of their Facebook notices to customers, you can tell they have a great work ethic but also value their families and how can you not admire that. It makes one want to be part of a place like that. We noticed how well the staff were well looked after too and that says something about the management - management who got in there and helped serve, clear tables and take orders when it was busy. And busy they were! Various seating arrangements to suit couples, groups, families etc. We were never rushed but someone would intuitively arrive to clear and take our next order. It truly made our holiday memorable. Thanks guys, we will tell our friends to come see you if ever in your neck of the woods.

The menu was vast, so big that we had to go back twice as we couldn't decide!!
The service was relaxed & friendly.
The food itself was really delicious & good value for money. You would never leave there hungry!

“Some of the best food in the country! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

I have been to this restaurant a few times now and I have to say that it has some of the best food I have tasted in NZ!! Great owners who happen to be the chefs and its because of their hard work and lack of holidays that this restaurant is just excellent. Any wait is definitely well worth it!

Awesome food,
Awesome service,
Awesome restaurant! :D

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

This place was recommended to me by friends who had had a dinner there recently.

We went there for brunch, the coffee was nice enough and the food was great.
