As this place is called "Just Seafood" we dined on a Wednesday night with great expectations. The food was generally agreed was average to good but dissappointingly there was not enough oysters for our party of four. The price for a bottle of red wine which was of average quality was very expensive plus also my wife had a glass of white wine which cost about $10.00 per glass was also very over priced. We all came away from this restaurant much the poorer and dissappointed never to return.

Food was excellent, and the service excellent also. Not very often in NZ do we leave a tip, but we did this night. Lovely waitress, who was exceptionally attentive. May have been that they weren't very busy the night we were there, and she had the time.

Nice food, friendly staff, good portions. Can't be more happy with this place. King prawns were the size they should be, not the shrimp size other restaurants offer.

We took the early dinner special for $45, 3 courses : A pumpkin&fish soup was served first, very good, then we had 12 mussels with salad as second dish. The service was talking on the phone for more than ten minutes while the dishes were waiting to be served . So the mussels finally arrived nearly cold at the table. We let them return to the kitchen and they were just warmed again, no more comment from the service about it
Finally a meringue with cream and berries was served, delicious.
Some bread could only be added with extra costs. Also the rice had to be paid as extra.
The light red wine was good, but overpriced (11,50 $ for one glass).
The food was good, but it was absolutely overpriced. I do not need to know what the regular price should be if 45$ was the early special (plus rice & bread, wine it was 66,20 $ ( per person!)) . The service was friendly but just poor.
