This is a very novelty restaurant and a good spot especially if you like people watching, the staff were really nice, and the fish tank inside is really cool. They have a conservatory which looks onto the pier. The first morning we had breakfast was great perfect meal, second day was not so great, had to send back my eggs as the white was not cooked properly, the bacon was nearly burnt and the chef messed up a few other tables too. Over all this is a cool place but very over priced, looking at the menu you would have thought you were at Auckland Viaduct.

Had a nice seat in the window with great view of the Harbour.Service was slow but pleasant waitress.The choice was limited I had a nice Asian salad with great flavours and my husband ha d a Lamb dish which was dry and tasteless hence he didn't eat it. Wouldn't dine there again.some dishes were very overpriced .

The place is very nice, no doubt about that. Of the 4 staff we had contact with, 3 were excellent. 1 not so. The starter, Rillette with salmon, was very good. So was the steak. The "double cooked"
or "double roasted " lamb (or sheep) was competing with a well worn shoe-sole. The "Pavlova" desert was excellent. As I said, difficult to review.

Fantastic place to eat with lovely views over the harbour and a great choice of where to sit, either inside or out. Great Food!

The place was busy with the food and wine festival AND the coastal classic on but we were directed to our reserved table for a surprise birthday dinner for my partner and I. The waitresses were very helpful and had a good sense of humour which we enjoyed. I had the fish and my partner had the steak and every mouthful was to die for. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert because we had had appitisers before we arrived but next time we will give those a go to. Congrats to the chef for making this experience a memorable one and one we are hoping to relive again when we come back. Totally worth the experience.
