This is a great all round bistro... The food here is outstanding and has never failed to be anything other than that on the many occasions I have dined here. Whilst not a large menu it does offer some slightly unique options across it which is always a nice change and gives everyone something to enjoy. The fit out on... More

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.

A warm reception when we entered and great service from the start to finish. Unsure about our desired wine selection we were given taster of a couple of Pinot's and got one that was spot on. The selection of all entree and mains was varied but difficult to choose as all looked perfect. For entrees we had goats cheese and... 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. We were given menus and drinks straight away and had the specials explained and then left to decide.... More
