“Great Food”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We ate here during our last night in the south island.
Service was good (although they were a bit slow on the drinks orders) and the food was amazing.
Its towards the expensive side of things - but not excessively so!
Plus as the bar is adjacent to the restaurant, you can always relax with a beer after eating!

“Amongst the Antarctic memorabilia”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Good food with good service with a large fire to ward off the cold winter chill. The place is frequented by Antarctic scientists and aircrew during the Antarctic summer so could be good for a few stories.

“Nice meal on the go”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We read the generally good reviews being posted so decided to try it out. The meal was quite nice for hotel fare. The roast pork special was excellent value. The steak was good beautifully and the wine was a reasonable price. All up no complaints. Best of all it was convenient to where we were staying and the service was really good. If you are staying close to the airport, this is a nice place to eat.
