I'd heard many good things about this restaurant and was keen to see if it lived up to its good reputation. Yes, it certainly does! The special of the day was bruschetta which was beautifully cooked as an entree, and would love to see this become a regular entree on their menu. My friend and I both had the autobahn... More

Came here for breakfast. Pretty much standard breakfast fare without any twists. Service was good and husbands mochaccino was lovely. Breakfast was in my view disappointing but solid.

With food being a sport for me, I make sure I eat with company that enhances my sporting goals. Having a work meeting during spare time with clients sometimes means a working lunch. This place was a very good place to mix conversation and food. We were given a table away from the main area and had easily two different... More

We came here with a group of ten clients for a Xmas meal. We found the initial bar man that served us to not really be a people person, was coming across as if he was doing us a favour, not the other way round. Some of our party ordered entrees which unfortunately came out with the mains, but the... More

A group of us were staying up the road whilst officiating at World Bowls 2016. There was a lot of food options in the immediate area and we decided to try this bar on a couple of occasions. Both times we enjoyed excellent meals and great service. The dishes were good value with decent portions and the beer was good.... More

I went to Joes Garage, Riccarton for Christmas lunch with 24 work mates. We had pre-ordered to save time and to make things easier for the restaurant and this worked very well. The staff seemed tired, it was a hot 32 degree day, but the service was fine. We had to wave over the waitress to order extra drinks but... More

We brought a group of 12 people for a workplace dinner, meals were Devine and totally suggest getting the fries, yummy! Got to 930 and bar man told us was last call for drinks, only to find him serving others after we were told unable to buy anymore. His attitude shrunk down the experience a bit, but maybe he's having... More
