Just email us and come in to take a look for yourself!We look forward to seeing you soon!

We sat on the balcony, and sat inside. Great views either way, and great location right on the harbour. Good drink selection with limited but quite good food.

If it's a nice day, this is a perfect spot for people-watching, with a beautiful view across the harbour.

Nice place for a drink and snack while getting out of the Wellington wind. Open air seating around the balcony with plenty of room inside with lot of wood and comfortable seating. Not busy when we were there but I could imagine the place would get tight at peak times. Great location and interesting view. Did notice that one of the bar staff seemed engrossed in a conversation of a personal nature while I was waiting for a while to buy drinks, but fortunately another staff member cleaning up noticed and came over to serve me. Nice waterfront place to stop for a drink and a chat.

This place could be great. The location is fabulous and the decor is pretty good too. But, there is a long line at the bar and the bar staff couldn't care less about the patrons. No thank you, no smile. Nothing. And they were not rushing even though there were lots of people waiting. Really poor actually.

We dined at the restaurant and the staff are great, but do not, order the sashimi. The portion is so minuscule, many restaurants would serve it complimentary as a taster. The food tasted good, but actually it spoils the ambience when you feel like you re being ripped off. Other dishes were a reasonable size although certainly not generous.
