Service was loose and very casual...some customers were getting annoyed because the server kept walking past the till and not serving. The water tasted like drain water...it was awful. Some of the food was ok but we felt we could have made a better meal at home.

We have had several meals here and since change of ownership, the place has been upgraded and made to look welcoming. It is a lot brighter and fresh looking, the staff are very friendly and we find the food very good. We would not hesitate to recommend to anyone travelling through Woodville to stop for a meal or just takeaways.

This place used to be tired and yucky, with grumpy owners. New management are friendly and welcoming, and doing their best. Would like to see less fried food and more fresh food in cabinets such as paninis, quiche, frittata etc. This restaurant needs some background music - it was very quiet and felt a bit like a rest home dining...

My wife and I stopped for lunch on our way from Wellington to Napier. This place is also called the Lindauer Café. There was no one else in the place at about 2pm, so service was no issue... and quite friendly too. Food was served promptly, and tasted fine. The decor was very tired and the menu was fairly conventional,... More
