We went to Manuka for dinner and to enjoy the local arts festival afterward. The service was friendly, but patchy as the staff were busy with the restaurant patrons, and doing takeaway coffee for people going to the festival. Between the noise of the blender going, kids colouring, and the line-up for coffee stretching into the table area it was... More

We were served by a really happy Maori waiter who was totally invested in delivering top notch service. He also did an awesome Maori design on my husband's latte. This cafe has inside and street-side dining, with a view of the park across the road. I had the chicken salad special which was divine, and my husband had the steak... More

Clearly a popular spot as it was crowded (Wednesday but in school holidays). The greeting was very welcoming and the service excellent. A nice selection and difficult to choose as it... More

We came here for early dinner after a rainy walk on Mt Victoria. Staff were friendly and welcoming, food was good and price was adequate. Nice place to go :)

Popped into Manuka and just wanted something very light, and was thrilled to see a lovely menu with a range of meals. We chose a medium pizza, which came super hot, sure fresh, and quickly and tasted great. Service was friendly and very smart. We will return for a more lengthy meal next time that is for sure. The ice... More
