The seafood platter was a mix of oysters mussels tuna sushi and other raw fish - beautifully presented and delivered. The Baileys chocolate mousse exceptional. Wines dear but that seems to be the norm in NZ.

We went to only seafood because of its external charm, to find that it was fabulous food!
Quaint white weatherboard reminiscent of Hampton's architecture attracted us to explore this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. Our dinner did not disappoint , nor did the service. Very friendly and efficient, so much so that we went back the next night for a repeat performance! We found the snapper to be very nicely prepared with a lemon butter sauce or banana in Marsala cream, sounds unusual but it worked.
We will definitely revisit this charming restaurant again.

Great mains, we had the snapper grilled and also with pasta. Accompanying salads were from the 80's which were a shame and held back from being an excellent review. If you were to get the early bird 3 course meal for $45 you'd need a lot of room but it would be great value.

Went here in a group of 4, on 7/11 food was good but senior waitress (possibly owner) was very condescending alluding particularly to the fact that she thought we did not go out for dinner very often. For a supposed seafood only restaurant the waitress concerned in my view did not have an appreciation of 'plain cooked prawns' nor options for their presentation. Her attitude was off putting & her comments completely out of place
