“Lovely decor”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We were on our way to somewhere else when we saw the greeneried outside dining area and decided to try it out. The food was beautifully presented and delicious, portion size perfect for lunch. And the limoncello cocktails dangerously delish. Perfect relaxed bunsiness lunch in a suprisingly tranquil setting for the inner city.

“Shining Star of the Britomart Area”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

My wife and I discovered this restaurant while returning to our hotel in the Central Business District from a dinner in another in the area. We talked to a server and she convinced us to return the next evening, which we did. Rather than repeat what other reviewers have written, we agree with all the good comments previously submitted. Not to be missed if one is interested in locally farmed vegetables.

“Intimate, funky and fresh.”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

What a great addition to the Britomart dining scene.
Atmosphere and deco is truely world class. Food is as fresh as it comes and menu is simple with emphasis on pure tastes and expert presentation.

Service is friendly and efficient, always feel well looked after even when dining alone.

Excellent venue for late afternoon catch ups among friends. While you are here, DO NOT miss the small excellent cake shop belonging to the same group just around the corner.

Highly recommended. Thank you HIP group for Dragging auckland's dining scene into the 21st century.

“such a great find”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Walked pass this restaurant a few times and was lured in by the wonderful aroma and the inviting decor! there were no tables so we had to wait (suggest u make a booking), we ordered a glass of wine cuddled up to the blankets they provided and enjoyed a chat. The service was attentive, friendly and professional. The food was a little on the small serving side but amazingly delicious, have to say best meal i have had in a long time! Had a wonderful night which was topped of with their home made ice cream on a stick! Can't wait to go back and try more from their menu!

We've eaten here 3 times since they opened. Every time trying different things from the menu. Consistently delicious food, great value and excellent service.
