“Good Kiwi size feeds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

Have eaten here numerous times as we own Motels in Picton and we have recommended to many customers. We have never had any bad feedback from the Guests who have eaten here. The staff are friendly and the food is priced accordingly. I have never had any room to take on a desert as the meals are so big!!

“Good food and best service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

My husband and I stayed one night at Picton before taking a ferry to Wellington the next day. We went for a walk to look for nice restaurant and good food that night I felt like having chicken and rice for dinner we look at the menu and it was there. When we got in the waitress was very friendly and welcomed us with a big smile.Food was excellent and we met Gina and again very friendly and helpful. the atmosphere is great with good memorabilia and playing good music in the background , not too loud just nice so as not to interfere with the conversation, but still able to keep your foot tapping. We spoke to other clients who were back for dinner for their second night in the restaurant and they have nothing but praise for the restaurant. We highly recommend this restaurant to all our friends. A very enjoyable experience

“Customer service lessons required”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Three out of four meals were OK but the chilli chicken was a disaster. Tough chicken drenched in a sauce that tasted like tinned tomatoes,chicken was minimal and tough with no apparent chile flavor. Rice was a glutinous blob. Overall appearance looked like vomit on a plate. When we commented to the waitress who appeared to find us an inconvenience she said she would tell the chef. We could then see her point to our table from the kitchen and her and the chef appeared to have a good laugh about it. We brought it up again when paying the bill but the women at the register also seemed totally uninterested. Go elsewhere - there are much better options in Picton

Stopped in after getting off the ferry from Wellington. I had the fish and chips with salad and my wife the Greek salad. Both were very good.
