The restaurant is a sports bar with a restaurant in the back. The service is good but the food average at best.

Pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, food and service. Everyone from the owner, to the chef to the wait staff were friendly, courteous and they all went out of their way to make our time memorable! Hats off to the new owners, chef, staff and management - wish you every success - we'll definitely be back!

A friend who loves this place recommended it to me and I thought I would try it. The patio was full so we decided to eat inside. The music was way too loud so my friend and I could barely hear one another. The waitress was even snooty when we asked her to turn it down. The place stunk horribly... More

New owners are stepping up the game. The food was wonderful. The staff consistently checked on our requirements - even encouraged special requests and substitutions. DELICIOUS & FAST.

Decided to give the Kiwi a try as we had heard it had changed hands, and I was not disappointed. A friend and I went for drinks on the patio. It was a lovely night, and the new patio chairs were quite comfortable. Ordered a rusty nail, and the server understood and made a nice comment re the classics. The... More

We went on a Wednesday night in August and found the inside so cold that we moved to the patio. Once there, we had to go inside to get the waitress to look after us. Once she came, the wine and food were very good. I enjoyed the lamb shanks and the daily soup(chicken mushroom - excellent). My wife enjoyed... More

My husband and I were looking for a place to have dinner on a Sunday evening and came upon this place. The patio was busy and the exterior looked inviting so we decided to try it. We sat outside and the waitress asked to take our order. I reminded her the table hadn't been cleaned and that we needed a... More

We went there to listen to folk music, during the Cambridge Mill Race Folk Festival. Wow. The music was just superb. There were Canadian, British and Scottish singers and even a singer of a French song. They sang "shanties" which are working man songs sung a Capella by whoever ended up with the cap. What a blast. This is a... More

We have been to the Kiwi a few times since it changed ownership and re opened this spring. Each time we try something else. Each time we have been very happy. This time I ordered the pasta primavera with chicken. It was excellent! My better half thought the lamb shank was really good too. The new owners are testing out... More
