Special occasion to visit norwester sat outside on a lovely summers eve. Attentative staff who didn't rush us. Rachel Scott (local baker) bread oil and vinegar was delicious. Mains to follow were really good and no need for additional sides. Shared dessert - the plate even had happy anniversary written on it in chocolate. Enjoyable experience - would def. revisit.

Had been to this cafe before and really enjoyed it so had no hesitation in revisiting. Lovely cosy atmosphere, great food and the bread is fanastic! Very addictive so bought some to take away with us on our trip south

Finally a place that serves good and fresh food. The tempura oysters were very good and tasted fresh. The Cesar salad was a little on the salty side but very good. Overall one of the best meals we have had in NZ.

We ended up having 2 stops here. A quick one on the way to our accommodation destination of Dry Paddocks (see my review) which was just coffee and cake and it was excellent so back again later in the day for a delicious dinner served by friendly, very pleasant staff. A balmy evening so it was great to be able to eat outside in the very pretty courtyard.
