A group of 5 of us (middle age) went to this restaurant on reading reviews and recommendations. The place was clean and the atmosphere was welcoming. The staff were also very helpful, polite and pleasant. Three of us ordered the fish of the day which was salmon. Unfortunately this is where the problem occurred. After being served quite small portions for the cost of the meal, all of us found that the salmon was cold inside and still raw. They took this away and presented it to us a second time, again it was cold and raw inside. Eventually they got it right the third time. Our two other friends by this time had finished their meal while we were still waiting for ours to be corrected... They were indeed apologetic and did not charge us for the meal which was fine but for a restaurant who's meals are not cheap and also small portions and supposed to be good cuisine the results are quite disappointing. The vegetable's were also very greasy so all in all we will not be coming back...

We used to go to this restaurant at least once a week many years ago when Brian was owner. Then we became dissapointed with the food ,price and service.and went elsewhere.

WOW, where we surprised when my wife and I went here for Lunch a few months back.
The meal and service was way up their again..Yes it was a bit remiss in not writting earlier after such a lovely surprise. But after eating the old favourite "BEEF STACK" i just needed to write a review,,, only sadness with this superb meal, would be a few more hand cut fries, it is a lovely meal that just lacks a few more fries for the MAN meal satisfaction. Other wise ,all was top notch, loved the Pate, and we had a platter to start of cold cuts .When we go again if it is still on the menu. This is a favourite for Eastern and Central European people ,and all it needed was a Straight shot (preferably a 100 gms) of Vodka to round it off.

My husband and I enjoyed a delightful lunch and fantastic service. The icing on the cake was for my husband to taste and discuss some local craft beers. We headed off to purchase beers on our way home. We will return.

my husband and I had a two course lunch today starting with an entree of pork belly and scallops with a lunch size main of duck thigh on a kumara mash and husband ate a steak sandwich with accompaniment of crispy onion rings. Nice light size portions and enjoyed with a Good George White Wheat beer. ambience, service and food great and restored our confidence i this restaurant which had disappointed us a while ago so hadnt been back for a couple of years. The new owners are established in Hamilton and revived this great eatery. A colleague also recommended dinner is just as good. We will be back again.
