“Breakfast for businesspeople”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

- The ideal business breakfast location or for locals looking for a change, Te Pania's hotel restaurant provides a simple, quality breakfast menu or a buffet option.
- The large open plan restaurant and bar is large, light and inviting making the 8-9 am period feel buzzy instead of cramped.
- We ordered off the menu with the Eggs Benedict and Full Monte. Quality.

“Good food, great service”
Reviewed July 16, 2011

Unable to get a table at our initial choice my friend and i chanced upon this returant and were able to get a seat. When i called for a reservation i was tipped off about a large booking and advised to come at a time when the kitchen would not be too bus which was a nice touch.

The resturant had a welcoming atmosphere and a modern look without feeling clinical. The staff were friendly and proffesional.

I ordered stea for my main which was perfectly cooked.The quality and presentaion of the food was of a high standard and i recommend the chocolate fondant (which was the waitress's top tip)

I have no hesitation in recommending this resturant.

And a special thanks must go to Jazmyn for looking after us so well.

“Previously good; now great!!”
Reviewed November 30, 2010

Have dined here before and enjoyed the food but was amazed by the quality, presentation and taste this time. The Te Pania salad was the most artfully put together combination of sight and taste I've ever encountered in a salad. No trudging through a mountain of sludgy greens here, folks. Delicate and outstandingly tasty. The main and dessert were equally translated from the menu to the plate with flair and "gusto".

I am a business client so not at all influenced by anything else other than a great experience.
