We ate at Joe's Garage on their Sunday night "2 for 1" Pizza night. The pizza's were large, and delicious. The staff were all happy and friendly. We enjoyed our meal and would recommend Joe's Garage.

We enjoyed breakfast at Joe's, plus had a sneaky takeaway dessert one night as well. All the food was tasty and serving sizes suited the prices charged.

Neat decor with the fun-ho toys as napkin holders. Food was delicious. Was nice to sit in the outdoor area with the fire.

A fairly average quick grill and pizza chain that doesn't pretend to be what it's not. Opens early for breakfast which is useful, and the service was quick and chirpy. Food was good without being awesome and the menu was same-same. Except for the breakfast 'pikelets', rather than 'pancakes' - which is a nice NZ touch. i returned for dinner... More

American diner style eatery below our hotel. It served a variety of substantial breakfasts and the service was both friendly and attentive.
