I am generally not a dessert kind of person because I like to enjoy a tasty starter and a solid main meal. However we decided to share a mixture of entrees to make room some desserts. That was the best decision of the night. All of us raved about the chocolate fondant, the freshly baked cheesecake, and even the house made icecream and sorbet was delicious. The presentation was amazing and they even had home made pastry baskets and toffee fans to keep the kids entertained. Awesome!!

Thank Selwyn B

A good central Wellington spot for a weekday lunch. It has the advantages that a top hotel provides (staff and kitchen) yet is rarely busy. The food is good, but the prices are right up there so value is questionable. But, if you make it a regular on your dining calendar it's worth joining Priority Priviledge and taking advantage of the discount - that very much changes the value question in your favour. Staff are friendly and efficient, and while it's certainly not a cozy place (being part of the hotel's open plan ground floor) it's light thanks to the big street-side windows and it's airy.

My partner and I had the scallops as a starter, beef fillet for our main and chocolate sufflet for dessert and all of it was delicious. The flavours were amazing and the beef was cooked to perfection. The service was wonderful and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. The great thing is it's not too loud so you can have a conversation without having to raise your voice. We'll definitely be back next time we're in Wellington.
