“Amazing meal, fantastic night”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Food was just amazing - so much so that some of our guys ordered the bluff oysters for desert after having as their entree! We arrived early for our booking and while the tables weren't full we were moved to the bar for 20mins. After we were seated we ordered some beautiful nz wine and our meals which were all amazing. Service was not the best I have received, but not terrible! From my observation one extra waiter/waitress would have fixed this so we didn't feel as though w had to ask for refills / more drinks. Would go back again for sure!

“Tasty food, would go again - perfect for lunch”
Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner here and really enjoyed the food. The menu changes with the season and we liked that almost every dish was available as a starter or a main which gave heaps of options. Service was ok, not stand out. The food arrived almost too quickly so the evening was over a bit too quickly. But overall a good experience and we will come back.

“Top drawer!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Dined here with 4 friends before heading back to the UK, we had no reservation but were made to feel very welcome by the staff and enjoyed a drink at the bar whilst our table was prepared.

Love the fact that most meals can be ordered as either a starter or a main course as it made choosing slightly easier as the menu is amazing. We certainly weren't disappointed when the meals arrived (I have never seen so much food envy around a table!!) and had a very pleasent drop of Pinot Noir to accompany our meals.

Staff were very helpful and knowledgable and made the experience all the more enjoyable

“top dining experience”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

My wife and I had lunch on march 5. We had not heard of the restaurant and we were browsing market square, and really liked the menu. Excellent food, great service - one of our top 3 NZ dining experiences during our 3 week vacation.

“Something Different”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

The service was a bit slow , The rest was that of a good Restaurant. The meal and menu gave us some interesting and different choices, . Have never had Creamed Paua before , but certainly worth the wait. The fish was fresh and cooked just right. , This is on a par with the other 2 big restaurants in the Viaduct. . Worth a visit
