Reviewed May 11, 2013

Very convenient location, close to Center of Town as well as the Harbour. Portions are generous and the service is very friendly. My favourite is the pasta but also the burgers are a close second!

“Completely Unexpected”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

My partner and I travelled to Gisborne over Easter Weekend. We weren't all that hungry and decided to try their Cob Loaf, my partner has never had a Cob Loaf and was blown away by how good it tasted - inspiring him to make his own.

We decided to go back the next evening to have dinner, we overheard several tables complementing the staff on their attitude, food and general hospitality. My Partner said it was one of the best meals that he has eaten, and passed his compliments to the Chef.

Totally recommend this place, the dessert is amazing too and a really good selection.

“My regular”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I am lucky enough to work on the third floor of the same building so this is definitely my regular. The food is great and the staff are always friendly. The Guinness Pie and the BBQ Ribs are a must try.
