Visited here for lunch brunch and whilst the place was not overly busy the service was slow which was a let down. With so many different options in the vicinity this could lead to repeat business choosing to go elsewhere than to return to you. Food was good just a typical breakfast menu. The coffee that we had was not... More

Not great, 2 of our group of 14 had problems with their meals. Cold and a very very fatty steak. Pretty slow and not too good a selection.

We had beef salad, lamb and potato skins. Every dish was well done but not unique. But good enough if you are just trying to find a place to rest at the Strand because there are many tables available. Beer was good too.

I really love Hawkes Bay wines... I find them very hard to get in Australia. There were 3listed chardonnays. Our waitress, thank you for being very honest, did not know about the wines I was talking about but went and got further info from the barman... Thank you! The wine delightful. The shared platters large, delicious and satisfying matched the... More

I like the food, and so nice place to enjoy with my family. The litter pork is my favorite, and fish of day, so fresh, wing with the beer is the perfect chose to have .

Went Waitangi Sunday with a party of 6. We ordered full ribs for $35 which were disappointing. Came with about 10 fries and a minimal salad. Ribs had hardly any sauce on them. Potato skin entree were overcooked on the verge of burnt. Saving grace was the chicken wings with bbq sauce that the teenagers inhaled. Plough man's platter for... More

We had lunch in the Phoenix. We had the steak sandwich and chicken sandwich. Both were delicious. The atmosphere was bustling and there was a nice vibe. The service was a little slow as it was so busy but the waitress apologised and we were not in a rush.

I've been to The Phoenix twice now and have not been disappointed. I ordered the open chicken salad both times and my goodness they were GOOD (and very filling) Compliments to the chef :) I also want to point out that the venue itself is very welcoming and seems to be a very well run place! Great location! We also... More
