We'd avoided this restaurant on our last few trips as we had a bad meal some years ago. But we decided to give it another try.
Having booked a table, we arrived to a somewhat off-hand welcome but made us wonder if we had made the right decision. But things did improve.
The restaurant itself is not the most attractive, a little claustrophobic inside. It's better in the outside covered area but all it has is a view of cars passing along the road.
The wine list is not extensive, but we chose a reasonably priced bottle of one the house whites which was totally acceptable.
For starters we chose ika mata and nori encrusted tuna. Both were excellent and we'd be happy to eat the same again.
For mains, it had to be the local pork. It was good, served on a bed of mashed potatoes with a sauce which was a little sweet for our tastes. No other garnish. Had there been a few snake beans or rukau to accompany the dish it would have changed from a good into an excellent dish (there were no sides of vegetables available on the menu).
So we were glad we decided to revisit this restaurant despite the lack of welcome. We will eat there again on our next visit.
