Have been in NZ a month now, north and south islands, eaten out every night, and this is without doubt the best meal I’ve had (duck). Great atmosphere, friendly staff, reasonably priced wine and delicious food with interesting veg accompaniments. Highly recommend👍👍

This restaurant never fails. Delicious food, delightful staff. Love the different food choices such as beefalo. Gourmet meals that don’t skimp in size but are well priced. Lovely surroundings- not too noisy even when full due to the separated areasMore
