We ordered the set Christmas menu and we were spoilt for choice with the ham, beef and lamb. The meal was beautiful and presentation spot on. As for the desserts we... More

Just had an excellent coffee and cheese scone at TG. Elegant decor and very friendly service. Try it, you won't be disappointed. Best coffee we have had in NZ, so far.

And I'm very fussy.... The meals are large so good value for your money. The injected donuts are yummy fun. Well worth the hour drive to go to get there for us. Keep... More

I have been here previously for cocktails and they are delicious! Great service. But this time I went for brunch. Had the eggs bennie. Bacon was very yummy, great prices. Some good options on the menu. Tried the injected doughnuts and yummy! Great atmosphere. Comfy chairs. Would dine here again.

Our food arrived at 8.45pm which was way too long to wait, an hour and a quarter. When people start looking at their watch you have over stepped the mark. No one ordered... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. With part of a group ordering entrees and others not it will seem like a bit of a wait as we wait for the entrees to be finished before we start on the mains so as not to rush the entree eaters, however this review has taught us a good...

Drinks were served straight away & our starter seafood platter came out quickly. The seafood was really good & presentation was beautiful. The Thai coconut fish was awesome! Our mains came out...
