Over Dec / Jan seek out their seasonal whitebait fish omelette = Yummy. We then had the very good value seafood platter at $32 per person per plate. Quick pleasant service and the room décor has interest.

Delicious pub style food. Easily one of the best steaks I've had anywhere in the world. Fairly priced and I would definitely eat here again.

We had lunch here before catching the ferry across to Wellington. Service was friendly and fast. Our orders arrived quickly and all four of us were happy with our meals.
