Was recommended by motel owners where we were staying. Lovely ambience at this restaurant and very comfortable seats. Limited menu but I finally decided on salmon, however when it arrived I could not eat it as it tasted extremely "fishy". My husband loved his Rib Eye Fillet Steak. I was offered another meal and chose an entree of garlic prawn pasta with chilli which was delicious and I was not charged for the previous meal which was appreciated. The prices of drinks and food were very reasonable and would definitely recommend.

Had a lovely meal here the other night. Reserve a riverside table to be sure of the view. Took the specials of the evening and very happy with service ,quality and price. We dressed up but any casual style is fine.

The food was delicious and plentiful and the restaurant itself is beautiful. It's in a newer building and the floor to ceiling windows/doors are open to the outdoor patio which is also lovely. There is a nice selection of wines and the restaurant personnel were all friendly and attentive.

We were recommended to this restaurant 'by the river' ... but found that it is also by SH1, which is quite busy early evening. Also, only the tables right next to the window have a river view (not a stunning one though) ... the others have an SH1 view. However, we were primarily there for the food.

Service was initially a bit patchy but picked up quickly and was very good most of the time. The food, however, was excellent and the portions a good size. The entree mixed salmon made a good starter for two people and the medium steamed veg portion was ample for two people with the mains. Our server and the chef were happy to accommodate a couple of minor adjustments to meals and the main and the dessert were excellent.

The only real issue that I have with the restaurant is that it lacks any soft furnishings and, as a result, is very echoey when busy ... we sat down at about 7pm and by 8pm it seemed pretty full. It was also lacking in an atmosphere ... it seemed quite stark.

Summary ... Food and service were good enough that the rest did not detract from our meal.
