“Always always fantastic”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

This is, without exception, our choice of restaurants in Timaru. We have never had a bad meal here. In fact we have guests from out-of-town who insist this is the restaurant they want to go to, when they come to stay. We were there again last week and everyone chose something different from the menu and everyone finished every last bite. I'm sure if we could have, we would have licked the plates clean !!

“Beautiful old building exceptional food and service!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We arrived early before they opened and was warmly greeted and offered a drink while we waited in the quaint bar. We all had steaks as that is their name and we assumed their best. They were all exceptional. My husband had mussels and I had the bruschetta. They were both very good. The quaint old building was a beautiful backdrop to a lovely evening. The service was professional but relaxed and comfortable. Highly recommended!

“Yum!”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

The food here is to die for. It is a bit on the pricey side but I do not mind paying a bit more to get a decent meal. The only complaint I have is that I did sit with an empty wine glass for a while and had to ask for one myself, and they wouldn't accept our entertainment voucher but when I emailed the manager this was rectified with a voucher. I would definitely recommend.
