Family friendly resturant. Food the usual good standard. Only offered drinks once thoughout the sitting. Staff are friendly but seems like theres no comunication between them.

A group of us dined here for lunch. Were greeted and seated by one of the staff, she was fairly friendly. Wasn't too long before our drinks order was taken and not long after that our food order was taken. There was quite a lot to choose from on the menu, which is sometimes a bit of a worry (e.g....

It's always a good place to go !! A nibble or a meal. Really lovely setting in tranquil gardens or indoors and a fire going on colder days. Great play ground for the kids. Thoroughly recommend this place and send lots of people that have been horse trekking with me around there (2 minute drive)suitable for any occasion! !!

I am had not been to this place for a while as there are better more refined places to eat. Again the menu is huge which I am no fan of. However six of us went for lunch, the meals were all very nice. I had the Thai green curry which was said to be spicy, no real hint of... More

We were bumped off the Top 10 campsite in Invercargill and directed to the campsite in Otatara. Sunday night, heading out of town with just scraps in the fridge of the motorhome; things were not looking good. Until we found this oasis of warmth and happiness next door to the campsite. A huge menu is usually a worry and potentially... More

Came here with a big group for dinner. Couldn't fault the service, the ambience is good. Meals were a generous size and everyone was happy with their meal. Definitely give this place a go.

Had meal here. Has large menu++ which may indicate they have no particular specialty- and it was confirmed. A bit pricy for what is offered. Has memorabilia for Burt Munro and photos which may be of interest.

We stopped for a late lunch and were blown away by the extent of their menu, and the number of people that were already clearly enjoying their day. The helpful waiter quickly found us seats outside...it was a beautiful 24degrees...and it didn't take us long to settle in. The choice of wines by the glass isn't overly extensive, but showcases...
