“What a wonderful experience!”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Our first visit to a resturant in Pukekohe and we couldn't have picked a better one!
The resturant is small and with seating for up to twenty people is intimate and comfortable; it's upstairs so is above the hussle of the street below.
The service was welcoming, engaging and prompt with dish after dish coming straight from the open kitchen in timely manner.
The food was fresh, fantastic and well presented. My pick is the mushroom stuffed with cream cheese; however whether it was the prawns or beef, everything was beautiful.
The portions were the right size for the style of dinning and at the end of the night, we left satisfied with the experience and certainly not 'heavy' from indulgence.
Our host was wonderful, good conversation and infectiously happy!
At $65.00 per person it was well worth every dollar, we'll be going back!
