“Great view but not so great food”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Went there for our last meal in Wellington and unfortunately it was a forgettable one. For such a great location it has just okay food. Wouldn't go back or recommend but they should definitely think of upping their food to go with the view.

“Average fayre in a stunning location. Could be so much better!”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

We all decided that our meal was 'fine'. A small portion of fish was plainly cooked and plainly presented. The all-you-can-eat salad bar looked better than it was. Several salad types but only one or two that guests were actually eating much of.
We all agreed that with such a location in the heart of a Capital City this place should be top-notch. However maybe they can survive without having to try too hard?
Could be so much better!

“Great value and locations”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I have been to the one in the city and a bit North a few times especially good when meeting other small family style groups. The city has a great view and my husband and I have been known to ditch work, jump on a motorbike and go for lunch some sunny days.

“Not a bad meal but not a really good one either”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Our friends suggested we come here after we had been out 10-pin bowling. It wouldn't have been my choice and I wouldn't recommend it as your first choice. It is okay, basically upmarket fish and chips, and the salad bar is good and redeems the shortcoming of the main meals. You don't pay a lot, there is a great view, but there is also a pervasive stale smell of deep frying. Desserts are better than the mains - you can't really stuff up an ice cream sundae - and overall it is not a bad night out, just not a really good one either.

“Money well Spent.”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

If you are ever in Wellington looking for a nice place for dinner go to The Fishermans Table overlooking the water as its excellent place for dinner. Lots of dishes to choose from.
