Had no music playing, wasn't very busy for a Saturday night. I ordered a glass of wine but it tasted old, the food was fast but wasn't special at all. The staff were friendly but found it odd that they didn't wear uniforms.

Thursday night. Booked assuming would be busy and it was incredibly quiet –3 other tables max. The restaurant was freezing I had to wear my jacket and another group had a gas portable heater pulled up to their table. No atmosphere what so ever. They had the Edge TV playing in the background which didn’t fit the theme and didn’t... More

1. Doesn't have monteiths on tap! It's the main West Coast beer for crying out loud! 2. Waiter came back after 20mins to say one order was not available. To be fair he was embarassed when the cook advised him after so long. 3. Replacement meal had a long hair in it. 4. No atmosphere. The rain forest theme that... More

No atmosphere, food was very average. It was a fly in visit after shopping and we really wish we didnt waste our money.

I have been here many times in the past 6 months as we are up here for work. It has became our "go to" for a good solid meal, steak is very good. I would recommend this place to anyone for a good meal. As my title states....... I can't understand why they are so quiet as we have never... More

Three of us for lunch, two of us had the special and one the nacho chips. Presentation was good, prompt service and delivered to our table in good time. Waitress was lovely.

Husband & I went here for a Saturday lunch. We walked in & there was literally no one else there which is never a good sign & made the atmosphere non existent. The waitress was a bit inappropriate constantly calling us lovey or dear or similar. Way over the top & uncomfortable. I had the beef burger which was ok... More

Have been before and with own car parks, it is a great venue to meet friends after shopping over the road at Northlands Mall. Hadn't made a booking but was no problem on Saturday 23/4/16. The food was delicious and the lemon curd cheesecake (my favourite) is the best in town. Our waitress was really helpful and even packed up... More

The meals were dished up slop cold and the advertised fresh fish was anything but. We were so disappointed so its off our list and cannot... More
