We had lunch here last week with family while holidaying in Hastings. Staff on the counter were very friendly and helpful with menu choices. All meals were huge and they came out not long after ordering. As there were 6 of us we chose to sit in a booth, good sized booth and plenty of room for us all. Kids... More

Have been here a few times now and this place never disappoints, great service and more importantly fantastic food! Great location right in the middle of Hastings. Would definitely recommend this place.

The Starters/Sides are better than the mains! I don't mean that the mains were horrible, but we ended up buying so many starters that we were full before our mains arrived. So much more choice than when I last came! Also some nights they do really good deals (like the two for one steak night). Everyone in Hawkes Bay (probably... More

Had a long wait to get served, however typical as you pay at bar, our entries only two came, then mine came with my main, we flagged the other one - my wife found a live bug in her salad, we told them and they took it away, we got no replacement - just told that this does happen as... More

My sister just didn't want to go back home yet, so a took her here. I will go back next visit for a meal, what we saw coming from the kitchen looked very nice. We found a menu and wished we had eaten there instead. There were all walks of people there, families through to professionals. Clean, very, very well... More

Great food and big selection from menu to choose from. Childrens meals too. Very crowded so meals took a long time to come out. However reasonably priced and go there several times a year

This must be one of the best value for money places in Hastings. Bye one get one free; Thursday steak, Fish and chips are always fresh; great salads, and yes the service is good too. Pop in for lunch, or take the kids out for a treat for tea. hubby and I also sneak in there after an early morning... More

We went for dinner and it was really nice! The food is not too expensive and it's worth your money. It caters for families with small kids too , so the adults can eat/ chat while kids can safely play. It's a good restaurant to take out the whole family and it won't cost a lot!!

Thank Patrysie
