We ate an early dinner on their patio. Everything was delicious. I had grilled kingfish with vegetables and a glass of rose wine. My husband had a hoisin beef salad and a glass of Saddleback Pinot. We had a white chocolate panna cotta for dessert....More

Hands down the best dinner we had in New Zealand during our honeymoon. The rack of lamb was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The owners were both super friendly and attentive and helped us have a great time.

Got to be one of my favourite places to eat now, steak is cooked beautifully and along with the creamy peppercorn sauce that is to die for 👌🏻 Definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone and I’ll definitely be going back often.

Served an excellent weekend brunch with equally good coffee. It was quite lovely to eat in a garden setting surrounded by potted plants. The service was prompt warm and friendly. Definitely one of the highlights in Davenport.
