Great staff, casual style eating, buzzy atmosphere. Just set back of the main beaten track. We booked to eat as it gets busy. Quality food, wines and desserts. We can see why Richie McCaw likes this local.

Not a bad spot to sample some NZ craft beer. Not the most friendly of staff but none the less I'd likely return.

We were lucky to get a table for dinner without a booking and happened upon their "early bird" 2 for 1 pizza deals, which we took advantage of.
