We went for dinner here with friends while on a business trip to Palmerston North. We were warmly welcomed by Dave at the door and seated in a quite corner. This worked well as one of our party is quite deaf and does struggle with conversation when a restaurant is too noisy. The food was fantastic and we sampled a variety of dishes from all three courses. The wine list was ok. Yes this is marketed as a champagne bar as there was plenty to choose from, but the wine list was less than what I expected. We asked for a sticky dessert wine to go with our desserts and unfortunately we had to go with a close second.
The decor and ambience certainly needs a rethink. It feels like the restaurant doesn't know whether it's a night club but needs to serve food before the dancing crowd come to town.
Overall, we have a very pleasant evening with friends over enjoyable food and service

A birthday treat for my wife, French Bubbles and nibbles, fabulous stuff! Joshua is the host with the most out in 'Front of House'. And Pauline did a wonderful job in the kitchen, whipped some Scrumptious food for us. Can't wait to head back for more!

We went for dinner last Saturday night with a voucher. The immediate impression was that the decor was a bit tired and needed a "gussy" up but the food completely different. George had steak and was impressed with his whole meal. I had lamb rump and it was cooked to perfection. My only complaint was that there was too much pumpkin bake (it was lovely though). The desserts were OK and the wines on offer quite expensive so we stuck to a glass each. Overall the dining experience was good but I'm unsure whether we would go back or not.

Called in to have a beer with my wife. This intimate bar/bistro had a great atmosphere with very good background music that was not too loud. Staff were excellent and the bar had a good selection of boutique beers. We will visit again and next time have something to eat
