Excellent service and food...I cannot comment on price as I was there for a work Xmas dinner and did not pay the bill. Food presentation was great and I loved the Raspberry & lime crème brulee with raspberry sorbet.

We were in Wellington a week, and this was our favorite restaurant. Excellent fresh seafood as well as meat. Quite varied menu, good wine list. Ask for a table next to one of the windows. Comparatively moderately priced.
