Bland food. Really only went there for the food as I/we can get drinks anywhere. Not worth the visit

Visited for our daughters engagement party, venue was private and very well laid out, food was excellent, well prepared and presented. Staff and service was outstanding from planning to completion as nothing was a problem for Kirsten and her team. They also went out of their way to accommodate guests personal requests. We would throughly recommend this venue to anyone... More

Large helpings and friendly staff are what made this memorable for me. I enjoyed the Roaring Meg wine to accompany my stuffed chicken breast, which was delicious. My friend had pork and scallops, which was also enjoyed. We didn't have room for dessert!

All meals were tasty, well presented, reasonably priced, and quite enough in quantity. The place... More

4 of us enjoyed our stay but felt over priced for what we got - meal was ok but steaks were average - salad was mostly lettuce which is a annoying thing I find a lot

We visited Saturday night for a night out, a meal, and because we were told the band was very good. The bar at Becks has a great range of beers including some very nice craft beers on tap. We spent some time there watching Otago beat the Hurricanes and then moved through to the restaurant so now I'll start with... More
