This restaurant has a lovely intimate setting and is great for a special occasion. The meals I have had here have all been good and the staff attentive. Allow plenty of time, this is not a place you would want to be in a rush as it is so relaxing.

It is always a very good night out here. The only slight criticism is that the entree's and desserts seem to out shine the main.

Nice setting; good wine list; varied menu; not as busy as I would have expected; service was polite, professional but slow. Entrée arrived in a timely manner but he main course took forever. We were seated at 1300 hrs left at 1530 hrs. Two members of the party had the duck and found it to be tough.

The food is amazing, the ambiance is very nice but the servers have zero teamwork and you wait forever to get attention. We were well dressed, kind and thoughtful and ended up with empty drink glasses and no food for 30 minute stints. These folks could learn a great deal from Hillstones.

Have been wanting to try the Degustation Menu here for some time, and waited for a very Special Birthday to do it. The food was incredible and the presentation exquisite. The Service was really friendly, and great recommendations on the food and the wine. The only difference to other Degustation menus we've tried, was that they often come with recommended... More

We dined here with high expectations and weren't disappointed. This is a refined dining experience enhanced by professional waitresses. Our waitress Marli was pleasantly attentive and gave us an excellent descriptive knowledge of our oysters two ways, natural and tempura, stuffed King George whiting and Hapuka fish mains and rhubarb dessert. All were delicious eating experiences.
