Food was good but wait person was not able to cope with the few people in the restaurant, took our order then came back to tell us we couldn't have the steak as the "boss" has ordered the last one!!

You have a choice of fixed price menu that includes a breakfast or al-la-carte - we chose the fixed price - whilst limited choice (for obvious reasons) it was very good quality - this combined with the Breakfast included in price (that was also good quality) - recommended

We ate here for dinner as we were stayin in the motel beside it. We were reluctant as there were only 2 oldish couples dining at the time. Food was a bit pricey ($28-35), however definitely worth it. Serving was not massive but enough to fill in. We got our drinks wrong - ordered corona and was given Stella but we let it pass. Just disappointing considering there was hardly anyone there. Ordered the fish of the day and that was tasty and not overdone. Side veges of carrot, broccoli was okay-ish, nothing fancy. Partner ordered lamb shanks and he liked it- tender and marinated well. Not much on the menu to choose from really but might be worth the visit if you are after simple, tasty and quiet atmosphere.

We chose this restaurant as it was the easy option as we were staying in the hotel it is part of. But we were so glad we did as the food was superb. There was good range of wines to choose from and the service was excellent. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a quality meal out in Napier.
