Nice idea of slow and home cooked meal served fast. Nice choice in a smorgasbord style serving with filling and relatively healthy meal range.

Had lunch at this restaurant when in Wanaka. Several decent choices of food items available to be taken on a plate for set pricing. It was worth the price.

The staff here are really friendly and the food is delicious. Really recommend the meatballs and the lamb. Food was served swiftly and the tables were clean. It also has a really good location that is accessible.
