Tradition for the ambiance, fantastic location, 2 or 3 tables on terrace but too at the window. The service is perfect and smiling. The food is great, wine list large. Maybe the decor too old fashioned but it s a detail

Having booked earlier in the day, we were fortunate to have an inside table overlooking the bay, so were able to watch the sunset over a wonderful meal. We shared the snapper, a huge fish, well cooked and beautifully presented to us. Desserts were also excellent, sticky toffee pudding and a blue cheese platter. Wine by the glass, again, good value and good wine. Not a cheap restaurant, but well worth the money for a very special occasion! The staff were friendly, efficient and, at times amusing!

We didn't have a reservation but they managed to find us a good table as we were eating early. We enjoyed one of the best meals of our 3 week trip in New Zealand and the staff were efficient and friendly. Highly recommended.

comfortable place with nice choices and lovely helpers. a bit upscale compared to some spots in Russell but that isn't too fancy!

Treating ourselves whilst on honeymoon, we were not dissapointed by this gorgeous restaurant in a simply stunning setting. Oysters and a whole snapper were complimented by wonderful wines and a picturesque sunset across the bay. Once night fell we finished our meal with a delicate lemon tarte, delicious cheese board and a glass of port. 5 star service from amazing staff made this the highlight of our trip. Thank you
