“Good happy hour”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We called in for a drink after a hard day. There was a happy hour running at the time which was an added bonus. The garden bar was a nice place to sit in the shade and relax. Unfortunately that was short lived due to 3 women and 2 children. The little boy threw a tantrum and then ran around everywhere. The little girl fell over twice and began crying. We wet to a bar for a quiet relaxing drink and that was not what we got. Dissapointing. We left after we fininshed our drink. We had been planning on staying and having dinner but went elsewhere.

“Good food, average service”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We had a dinner here, and had no issues finding a table. The service was friendly, but we were a bit underwhelmed with their service. They appeared understaffed or distracted the entire meal.
Aside from that, the food was amazing! The steak was thick, juicy and full of flavour, and the breads & dip was a very generous portion. The fish and chips were OK - we've had better.
Overall, I would go back for the steak, and would be keen to try some of the rest of their menu.

“Great fresh fish”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Very good casual atmosphere with excellent fresh menu. Not the cheapest but worth it. Also good for a drink while watching the sunset.

“Consistently satisfying”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This restaurant is our favourite in Raglan - for ourselves and our guests. The food is fabulous and the service excellent. Being close to the water is great, and the sunsets divine. It could be too noisy for some people, but I guess that goes with being full, and the modern open decor.
