“One of the best meals eaten in the South Island”
Reviewed December 26, 2010

Out party of 10 recently went here for dinner on the recommendation of a family member who lives nearby. It is a great restaurant which attracts a large local crowd. A booking is recommended for any large group. The weather was perfect so we sat outside which was excellent as we had 4 children in our party. (outdoors has play equipment for young children)The steaks were very tasty and tender and the desserts were delicious. The menu was one of the largest I have seen and there would definately be something for everyone to enjoy.

“Really popular restaurant with the 'locals'”
Reviewed October 7, 2009

We went here on a Wednesday night.
We arrived at 6.30pm and by 7pm the place was full!
This is a really friendly restaurant with big portions!
It is a good 15 minutes drive out of town
But the scenery is beautiful
We shared a fried seafood entree and there was more than enough for two people...probably three!
I had a steak which came with chips and salad and an hot salsa.
My husband had lamb ribs.
Prices for big main meals are around $NZ 33.
But the menu is vast and there is alot to chose from so you could have a meal from $12 up
BIG servings!!!
Fresh salad etc
Great service!

“Service Slack”
Reviewed June 29, 2008

Well the service was slack to say the least, still waiting for our garlic loaf and second glass of wine. Menu is huge to the point of being overwelming but there must be something for everyone. The meals are huge, quite simular (same veg, salad and demi glaze on everything we tried) and a bit big hotelish but tasty enough.
