Make sure you don't eat here when there are large groups as the kitchen can't handle it. Dinner arrived 2 hours after ordering!

I went here with three people all of whom are foodies. Our starters were OK (squid & pot stickers?), which had us a bit worried. the pork belly burger, which we all had, was fabulous. I had a cream brulee for dessert that was good. the personal service was good, though the overall way things were done did not make sense for a night that did not seem busy. we had to wait at the bar, though there were a bunch of open tables. i had a beer and then we got seated at one of the tables that was open all along. I found this to be an average NZ restaurant.

Had brunch here 3x lately - first 2 lovely meals, but this Saturday was some of the worst food I've had. Both our meals were drowned in sauce, poorly presented, sloppily cooked. Really disappointing.

A group of us were staying in Westport for the night. We arrived late but they accommodated us all despite being busy. We ordered a range of different things from the menu and and not one of us was disappointed. I ordered the lamb steaks which you cook yourself on a hot stone and it was probably the best lamb I tasted on my entire trip to New Zealand. If you are in Westport then go to this place.
