Friendly Waiter Food was average but not bad. We sat outside which was lovely. Water Bowl was bought for our dog which is always a bonus! My Husband had the Char-Grilled Beef Burger and I had the Roast Vege Salad. Salad was lacking on the Feta Cheese which I should have asked for more but didn't....not sure why that was... More

First impressions had me concerned. The floor was dangerously slippery. Very oily. The diet Coke was flat and had to be returned. Food was okay. Don't believe will return in a hurry. Fine dining prices without the elements that make it memorable.

We ate lunch here on a beautiful Waitangi Day- no public holiday surcharge. My husband enjoyed a smallish plate of fresh hapuka with vegetarian lasagna and pineapple and corn salsa $34.50. I had a large plate of roasted vegetables (approx 5 small cubes of beetroot and another 4 of pumpkin) and lettuce salad with feta. There may have been some... More

We booked in for Christmas Day lunch, paid 50% deposit, amounting to $87. There was a set menu with a few choices on each course. Started off a little odd in that we were promptly asked for our choice of all 3 courses the moment we sat down. We did ask if we could decide on our dessert after our... More

We ordered chicken teriyaki; it came with a couple of hair in the middle of the rice but the waiter exchanged it with a fresh one ( without the hair). I asked for an extra hot half strength flat white with soy but it was cold and it was very strong. Calamari dish was not amazing but was eatable. Service... More

Family dinner, four adults and two kids. Casual and simple, staff not overly attentive even on a slow evening. One entree sold out. Not advised when ordering which is sloppy. Food was tasty and fresh, all enjoyed their meals. Portions just the right size. Will be back.

I just had a pleasant lunch with friends at Annabelles, Tamaki drive . Combined with a bottle of Craggy Range Sauvignon, we enjoyed the food: a Calamari Salad, a Duck Salad and Eggs Benedict with Salmon. My Risotto with Crayfish tails could have been less soggy, but the taste was nice. Let clients however decide for themselves if and how... More

We went for a staff dinner here. Geez, really wish we hadn't. The food was very poor - no love or attention. I had the haloumi which I had to hunt through the garnish for and asparagus which was overcooked - very poor value at 18 dollars. My main of calamari (approximately 8 pieces - rubbery with heaps of garnish... More

The service was slow and inaccurate, the food when it arrived was poor. I had the burger which was small, dry and had an odd taste, my daughter had the vegetarian option, the "roasted" vegetables were cold just off being raw and were soaked in oil.
