“Plain Food + Appalling Service = Worst Restaurant in Wellington!”
Reviewed October 17, 2010

Despite the good write ups this restaurant receives, I think it is one of the worst dining experiences I have had.

The waiter's service was terrible. Took three complaints about ineatible food to get any acknowledgement. A small change to one menu item was requested. The chefs obviously refused to make the change as the course was simply not serviced with no explanation or apology.

The kids "chicken nuggets" was deep fried chicken schnitzel that was so over cooked that it resembled and tasted like deep fried cardboard.

My beef tenderlion was at best average. The beef simply had no flavour. For $41 you should be able to expect better.

To be fair, my wife did say her duck was nice.

Overall extremely disappointed. We will most definitely never return!

Only had the brekfast here but that in itself was a great dining experience. Good staff, well prepared food and can't wait until I go there for an evening meal
