The burgers might as well be the best burgers we have ever had! Every part of it is delicious, plus the view is wonderful if you chose to bring your burger to the lake side to enjoy it. The queue line is really not that...More

I've been going to Ferg for 10 years, and I've never had a bad meal. It's an iconic burger joint that does what are definitely New Zealand's best. I've even seen them called the best in the world. You will queue for your food unless...More

So much hype around this we just had to try it out. We read online that the way to avoid the queue is to place an order via telephone. Did this and burgers were ready for pickup in 20min. Had the Little Lambie and it...More

There's a lovely park nearby with a stream running thru it. You can get the burgers and then adjourn to the park to enjoy the food and the scenery. There's no reservations and neither is there a lot of seats. Best to take... More
