We enjoyed our evening at Squid restaurant.The staff were friendly and attentive with good service.The Hapotea fish,steamed vegetables,chip wedges and paprika mayo ,followed by profiteroles with raspberry coli together with the excellent N.Z wine were perfect.
Be aware ,book a table as it can get busy!

Spent a pleasant hour whiling away Sunday afternoon. Pan fried John Dory was spot on. The smoked fish platter was almost overpowering! Lovely wine - good choice of local offerings and friendly service. Be back next time!

Tuesday night we went based on a recommendation by a lodging host. 2 of us ordered the NZ Salmon, one ordered the mousska. The salmom was perfectly cooked and the vegetables wer also good. The mousska review was "good, not great". Cnsidering this is a fish place, they did best what they should have. Place was full at 8 p.m. on a Tusday night, so we knew it was a local favorite. Overall, a good (but not "knock your socks off" dinner.
