The food was no better than average at best the wine list and menu were presented on plan printed paper stapled together. You would expect more based on their own descriptions. It is also a fare way out of Cromwell. The plus they did pick us up and dropped us back later.

Were here in December in a large group (pre planned) and loved the food but the waitress seemed pretty annoyed to be there, not welcoming at all. Shame as we really like this place and the food really is good. Maybe she was just having an off day.

Was a bit nervous after we went in to enquire about dinner as it's the only local restaurant and they were a wee bit unorganised. BUT when we arrived service and friendliness was brilliant. Great food and a good but small wine list. If you're staying at the resort you can take wine back to your room. Unfortunately the kids... More

We are here whilst staying local, the menu had a good choice and the food was very good and well presented. The staff were warm and welcoming and advised us well on choices for wine with our meal.

Nice venue for a meal. The table was dressed up for our Christmas do. My meal - Salmon - was beautifully presented and delicious and the pork belly and chicken meals around the table also looked great. My husband had the fish of the day - orange roughy and ordered it pan fried. His meal was mostly a large plate... More

I did not book and the place was full so I ate in the very windy courtyard outside. The steak was good and had a good size of 'sides'. It was too cold to,stay for dessert. Friendly staff and it would have been a much better experience inside - so book first!

We had a delicious meal at the restaurant. Food was well presented and tasty, however the service was a bit slow from the wait and bar staff. They could have done with another staff member to serve drinks etc. if the service had been better we would have rated it a 5. Pleasant place to eat and the food was... More
