This is a repeat visit and equally as good this time as the last visit to Kerikeri. The staff are very pleasant and obliging and the food totally delicious. We look forward to coming to town so that we can enjoy dinner at this location. My business colleague also enjoyed dinner here.

Food was excellent and staff very efficient. We were taken to our table right away and even though the place was very busy our orders were taken quickly. We didn't wait long at all for our meals to come out. Only thing that wasn't the best was our table location. It would seem they have tried adding a few extra... More

I popped in and ordered a takeaway pizza and a pasta meal for takeaway, the place was buzzing with diners, I didn't have to wait to long for my takeaway and they had a nice seat outside the door where I could wait. I did find parking a bit difficult but managed to squeeze into a tight spot. The best... More

The quality of the food is good and all the dishes I've had from here were very tasty. BUT the staff seem stressed and seem to not wanting to be there. Unfortunate. Also I ordered two large pizzas ( they were about 35 cm diameter) and a pasta take away. That came to 82$ ! Yes the pizzas are good,... More

It was a spur of the moment decision to go so had no booking but they managed to accommodate us around the fireplace which was warm and cosy on a cold winters night

The night we visited it was pouring with rain and cold the restaurant was warm and welcoming., Staff friendly and good device, Seafood Risotto was devine however my husband thought the lamb shanks lacked flavor.

At first sight I was excited to come here. The staff were very friendly and attentive without being pushy. The "garlic bread" is basically a massive pizza which had a delicious strong garlic flavour without being overwhelming. Definitely tasted like a homemade base. Salmon, well there was nothing wrong with it but also not outstanding especially for over 30 dollars.... More

Wasn't too sure based on reviews. Had a perfectly cooked pasta, full of flavor. Great service and lovely atmosphere. Will be back for sure. Pizzas looked great.
