“Mixed experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

We went with a group and between us had good and bad experiences. None if the listed wines we wanted were available. Found took over an hour to come. Our friends chicken was lovely. The lamb was ok but uninspiring. Another's salad never came and the fish was not fresh. I heard the owner telling another table they had run out of mashed potato. Would not return. Not good enough. Did give feedback but it seemed it seemed unwelcome.

“Too many muckups for a food dinner out”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Orders were wrong, very dirty kitchen on display, the piece if meat our steak had come from was sitting out the back open with flies on it, the wine we wanted wasn't available so we were told that they would open a bottle of something else "at their expense".. But we ended up paying for it..a wine that wasn't as good as the one we'd ordered! A bit disappointing but it was the only place open.

“Superb value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Went for an evening meal with my wife and kids (11 & 8). Great food, in fact we had so much we could not eat it all. Prices were good and I would certainly go there again. really enjoyed it

“Not a great effort”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Decided to only have coffee here $nzd9.40 for two flat whites...one of the more expensive coffees in NZ.

Didn't eat any food - place too untidy with used dishes and cutlery left on tables from preceding customers.

One to avoid.
