4 of us went for dinner. The garlic bread was tasty.The lamb cutlets were beautifully cooked - 2 others had the chicken breast that too was really tasty & tender. The dessert was disappointing as it was a commercially produced and the cheesecake was still frozen in the middle which was abit disappointing.

Our motel host told us in advance that this restaurant has the habit to serve LARGE portions. Therefore we decided for a shared entree and a main each. My wife had the eye fillet and I couldn't resist the fisherman's basket. Our meal was accompanied by a bottle of Pencarrow Head Chardonnay. After we finished the main we decided to... More

We had starters which was not a good idea; delicious but when we saw the size of our steaks I certainly knew I wasn't going to be able to finish mine. The atmosphere was great, the food was very good and there was a reasonable choice of wines.

However, I can definitely recommend it,for quality, service and value for money. Our waitress was excellent - really friendly and helpful. She really couldn't do enough for us. The menu was... More

Stayed over night while travelling to Wellington, and had dinner. What a pleasant surprise, food was delicious. Had the lamb cutlets, and also the steak both were cooked to perfection. Generous helpings, the service was quick and very friendly.

My husband and I ate dinner here and was very pleased. The fish that I had was one of the best I have ever tasted. The facility is very clean with a nice ambiance. I would highly recommend.
