“Such slow service!!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

The food was well presented but it took over an hour for our three meals to arrive! And when they did arrive they came out very staggered! It is a beautiful setting under the cherry trees on a sunny day. The coffee was drinkable but definitely not the best!

“A must!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

We had lunch here, had lots of tables outside in the sun which was absolutely nice on a hot day, lots of tables insides as well... Had smaller tables for kids as well. It's not in the main town but not far either. The food was priced reasonably and was very tasty... We had fish and chips and I can say its was the best I have had been I have been in NZ... I have been here 4 years now. If going for lunch, maybe it would be a good idea to reserve a table... As is very popular with locals.

“Best in Gisborne.”

Wow we have visited twice now and this place serves great food and it comes with awesome service in a lovely setting. You can sit outside in a garden setting or indoors.

“Excellent food, good ambience”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

If you are looking for a quite place with clean atmosphere, this is the place! Their coffee is just so yummy. Their lunch menu is not overpriced for its quality. Staff are really friendly.

“Top spot in Gissy”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Enjoyed a generous and very tasty lunch at this establishment. The garden setting was spot on for the day and it was good to see a great range of people enjoying the ambedience of the place. The Staff were attentive but not intrusive for this informal place. Happy to recommend those wanting to get away from the main drag and enjoy a great settinn with terrific food. Will be back when I am next in Gissy.
