“As good as anywhere on Ponsonby Road”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

Ponsonby Road has suffered a bit lately with all the hype around the Viaduct Basin associated with the Rugby World Cup and the new developments around Britomart precinct, but it's always worth a visit. We went here for a late Sunday lunch and enjoyed the excellent Express lunch which is a fixed price for entree, main and a glass of wine. Try the button mushrooms..excellent. It was quiet but unpretentious and the passing foot traffic is always entertaining. We'll be back.

“French food in Ponsonby”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Our second favourite resto in Ponsonby. Very good French food, with good service, and friendly staff. A big pricey for everday, but worth it for a good night out. Almost as good as Prego, but lacks the menu variety and buzz. However, usually little or no wait for a table.

“Total enjoyment and good value!”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

A constant favourite, always a high standard food, service and ambience. Great location on Ponsonby Road, in the heart of a trendy and desirable area. It is also byo meaning you can your own wine.
