Stopped off for a quick drink on a rainy day. The waitresses didn't seem to be in any rush, but I discovered that this was the way in NZ, just a lot more laid back. Lovely bar and I can imagine that it is one of the places to be in the evening.

A group of us went out for lunch. We all had something different and I chose the fish special which was actually not too bad - nothing fabulous but adequate. One friend had the BLT and the toast was like cardboard it was so hard. The corn fritters were nice but the meal was small. The sliders were the pinnacle... More

Outstanding, effort 450gm steak on a hot stone been here twice for this meal, was awesome and would recommend it, I could have eaten 2 of them each time. The plates the stones come out on are not designed for the chips or salads at the side, did find them annoying to eat from. but the steak was awesome

Nice restaurant food at an obviously popular bar. A bit cold for us with the door open and the locals didn't seem to mInd - they had shorts and jandals on when we had jeans and shoes! Well worth a visit.
