The meat eaters and Vegan were equally impressed with the food, service and friendly atmosphere. We will definitely be back and would recommend it to anyone (and have done). I had the pork belly and my wife had the chicken, which were equally awesome.

There is gathering area by the bar where you can await or meet friends. Service is pleasant. There is a varied menu with regional favourites such as blue cod, Bluff oysters, green - lipped mussels and venison. Afterwards relax over dessert or coffee.
