“Great food. Just right for a casual lunch”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

It was the busiest place in town at lunch time that day, which says a lot. Not sure I'd go there for dinner (it's pretty casual, more like a cafe than a restaurant) but the food was lovely and the service good.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed a brief but amazing lunch while in davenport - were in a rush but were accommodated for and nicely looked after. Very friendly and polite service, nice outdoor tables, absolutely delicious, tasty, fresh, yummy food (veggie fritters and potato rosti), and ice coffees. Worth a stop, would definitely recommend and would return if in Auckland again.

“Great fish chowder”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We ate here on our first night in NZ and had the best fish chowder of our 4-week visit. After a late lunch, we wanted something relatively light after watching the sunset over Auckland from Devonport (highly recommended). The fish chowder, which included green-lipped mussels, and accompanying toast was delicious. A delight to eat outside and the service was friendly.

“Nice lunch in Devonport”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

I ate here with my family recently and we enjoyed our lunch. My sister and I split a veggie sandwich, and it was one of the best value-for-money dishes I've ever had at a restaurant in NZ (tasty too!). I can't remember what my dad got, but he enjoyed it. He said his smoothie was so-so. It was a nice day, so we ate at a table outside. Staff were friendly and helpful. I'd recommend this restaurant.

“Food cooked poorly”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Place looks great and service was good however the food was a let down. The pizza was undercooked and tasted of dough. A bit too expensive for the level of food we received.
