Bad bad bad
These people just don't know how bad everything is. Firstly the front of house people need training. Can't blame them they obviously don't know. The menu is less than ordinary and the cooking just average.

Julie, on your last visit I was very reluctant to allow you into our establishment. Each visit you bully and harass our young staff. The way you disrespect them is absolutely disgusting and no one should tolerate your intimidation and your grand delusions of superiority.

I feel for you that you have had several failed attempts of running cafes in Wynyard but it gives no one the right to belittle others trying to succeed. Unfortunately restaurants are closing in and around Wynyard. Instead, let's support one another and allow everyone to prosper - the town and local businesses.

For the welfare of my staff, please do not enter our restaurant ever again.

My wife and myself went here for our wedding anniversary we put our order in to later be told theres no PORK BELLY that wasnt a problem as they gave us 2 complementary drinks for the trouble.We did then order the TOASTED BRUSHETTA and the CALAMARI. Brushetta was nice calamari was sickly may have been the crumb?. Then the mains came out i had the LAMB WELLINGTON and my wife had the DUCK. Well the lamb was completely inedible chewy fatty crap 3 little mushrooms and couldn't find the brie anywhere.. sent it back, Chef sent his apologies. Then we went to pay for our meals and they charged us for a dish that couldn't be eaten chef didn't want to know about it so we paid $80 for good brushetta and average duck.. wont be back anytime soon!!

Good menu and was certainly surprised by the size of the meal. Very tasty and plenty of it. Excellent value for money. Friendly staff. Certainly will be visiting again.

Visited Purple sage on a Friday Night, all the meals for our table were exceptionally tasty & the plate size was more than we could handle. We had a variety of plates, from the fresh flat head, cock & crustacean to the steak, accompanied with a Tassie WIne. The service was friendly & our meals where amazingly quick, which for us was awesome for as we all arrived hungry. We were too full to try deserts, but they sounded delicious. So a huge Thank you

I came here as a guest for a wedding. The food and service was fantastic.I had salmon and it was so well cooked. However, the serving was a little small. As a reception venue it was great. This venue would be best suited to small weddings.
