Dinner tonight!! What a stunning meal. The staff and service were fantastic.....but the food was awesome. Pork Belly and Fish of the day then Creme Brûlée to die for!! If you are in Gisborne this is the place to dine.

Family birthday party went down a treat here. Not cheap. We arrived early before the kitchen got busy so service was excellent. Food can push your boundaries a bit if you are up for a culinary challenge.

This is a fantastic place for dining and delicious food. Quite expensive however the food lives up to the prices. We started with entrees of bread and dips - so tasty and a generous serving for two. We also got the fish ceviche - for one - a taste sensation. A glass of Matawhero Pinot gri - went well with... More

As usual, we just turned up out of the blue on a Tuesday night - they were quite busy as Bull sales were on in town for the week but that wasn't an issue for them. We were promptly sorted and seated.

It was a Fiday night and our boys were watching a movie put on at their school from 6-7.45pm so we decided to do an early and see what seasonal changes were on offer. We hadn't been in a while as every time we'd been previously, there was always something missing or not complete or balanced with one or more... More

Just like the title - the food here is excellent. Decent portion sizes and absolutely delicious. Service is excellent. Ambience is nice - can be a bit noisy in the open space if there are a couple of big groups but not so bad that you can't hear yourself. Highly recommended.

A great night out with excellent food, great service and neat ambiance. My wife and I had a really enjoyable few hours with yummy starters and mains - would have liked to try the yummy looking dessert menu but just too full...!
