Had Saturday brunch here with my daughter. Very sunny, hot day. Nothing was too much trouble - needed extra cold water due to the heat - They gave us a whole glass of ice - lovely. Thank you. Daughter back there again for Sunday brunch with her friend!

Lovely wait staff, we had a quick lunch before heading to the airport and thought this place was good value. Simple salad and a open fish sandwhich which were both pretty good for the price. Topped off with a good coffee to go, next time we are in Rotorua, we know where to go for a quick lunch and good coffee!

Came here earlier in the week for lunch. Had the seafood chowder which was tasty. The waitress was very welcoming. It was a nice spot to have lunch on a sunny day.

I ordered scallops for entree, and venison for main. After a very lengthy wait, the scallops arrived cold and not properly cooked. They came back a second time, hot and overcooked. I ordered rare venison, and it came medium and was quite tough. The venison was served on a potato rosti, which was very burnt; as was the bacon accompaniment. The main meal had an overall bitter and unpleasant taste. Shame. Maybe they get it right at breakfast??

Go to "Eat Sreat" on Sundays for the bargain lunch of $10 in lots of participating restaurants. We had a great BLT with fries - delicious
