Description: We have a lovely warm and inviting restaurant. We use all locally sourced product with very generous servings with an emphasis on the meat portion of the meal. Our steaks are 250gms up to the "Donald Trump Choker", which is 500gm and cooked slowly over 20 hours. We use fresh Blue Cod and locally caught wild Venison. Buster Crabb is the best choice

we enjoyed our meal here. The steaks were cooked perfectly. There were a good selection of sides an sauces as well. The staff were friendly and helpful. I did find the menu a bit confusing. It was an attempt to be clever that only kind of worked. Spoiler alert... the newspaper they give you when you sit down is actually the menu.

Had a very lovely lunch here with my wife & friends: Excellent menu & Beverage List: Had to ring and change our booking at short notice from 2 to 4 & this was efficiently done without any problems: Abit of a wait on our Starter (20mins) but as it was quite busy this was understandable: Meals were well presented & cooked to perfection.
Reasonable Prices : Will certainly be back.

Second visit in two week. First was a business meal and second was a social occasion. Have to mention, very busy as very popular but the food sorts that issue out and the level of service was excellent and speedy. Minimal wait time all round. Will return next week again with more family. Thanks guys :)

Complimentary pick up from our hotel. I ordered the eye fillet steak medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. They made a mistake with my side so I ended up with an additional side. The dessert was very good too. Costs about $35+ for a main, $15+ for dessert and $15+ for starter so all in all about $150+ for two.

We were a travelling Aussie couple in Invercargill for a night only. This was a very pleasant restaurant in a town of 50,000. The atmosphere was quite uptempo and even thought there was a rugby test on this was not intrusive. The service was excellent and the menu was a little different and interesting read itself. The service was flexible and allowed trying a selection of bluff oysters which was appreciated. The Foveaux Cod was great and the special was well received. The beers were cold and there was a variety of local beers.
Well recommended and would visit again if in the locality.
