Fantastic staff and delicious food. Staff was very attentive and helpful with guiding us on the menu and potentially what food we would like based on the feedback. We had two with allergies which still resulted in different options. We regularly got asked if the...More

This is our fourth time in 2 years that we visit Wanganui, and each time we've had an evening meal at this favourite restaurant. The service is excellent and very professional; the waitress was very efficient, and although the place was busy, we did not...More

Have had pizzas, chips, desserts here and all are good portion sizes and yummy food for a decent price. Pitchers of beer for $10 is pretty good too. But the real highlight is their quiz night. Pete, the host, is a great MC and quizzes...More

Having lived in Wanganui for over a year now, Stellar has become our 'go-to' for something other than takeaways. The meals are very reasonably priced and also more than ample in serving size. The wait-time is fairly standard during the busy dinner service time -...More

Hi Pete, I emailed you 2 weeks ago as per your response to my review and have yet to receive either an acknowledgement or response to my email. Your statement in your response says - and I quote - "if there is any way we can convince you to come back and see that we can do much better then please contact me"etc. Your lack of response to me email makes me wonder if your words were for the purpose of the people reading the review as opposed to the customer service. Regards Karen
