“Enjoyed every mouthful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

This quiet unassuming bistro really delivered on flavour, service and atmosphere. I can particularly recommend the Lemon and Herb Rissoto with chicken and the poached pear. Their two for one main was an added bonus but I would have happliy paid full price!

“Great Find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

After walking around much of Wellington's main streets then finally up Cuba St, we discovered this little delight. The restaurant looked nice from the outside, not too large or noisy. When we entered, we were not disappointed. The ambiance was really good. The service was excellent and the food was really delicious. A quality place at the top end of Cuba St.

“A very enjoyable experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is clearly a well kept secret. In town for work and spotted this restraunt -initially was a litle concerned as there weren't many customers. However on a rainy Wednesday night this could be expected-I needn't have worried as the place filled up shortly after we sat down. I had the crab ravioli; it was fantastic. Two mains, sides, two deserts and coffee just a tad over $100. Great value for money

Top quality food at a reasonable price and with excellent service. The lamb was delicious as was the pork and the deserts scrumptious.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

What a lucky find! We had a fabulous meal - all 5 in my family really enjoyed their meals. Fresh and delicious. Steak was cooked to perfection, also had pork with potato gratin and lamb shanks which were very tender. Ordered before 6:30 so got free dessert - had any choice from their dessert menu. Excellent service. Lovely ambience. Reasonably priced meals too. Would highly recommend! In fact it would be the best meal we had on our recent NZ trip.
