“Good atmosphere and excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

Arriving without a booking the staff were very welcoming and found us a spot in the quieter area (next door) which suited us just fine. The place has a good vibe and everyone enjoyed their food and wine. The evening would have been marred by the group of people who arrived shortly after us who were pretty obnoxious but the waitress dealt with situation in a pleasant but assertive fashion. We walked from the Langham hotel less than ten mins up K road. Definitely worth the visit

“better othertimes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

We went as a group of 5 last week, having been there before and had good meals. This time 3 of the party order veal scallopini, which was very disappointing, it was no better than any of us could have cooked at home, and covered in rocket.

The restaurant which is busy, has a lovely atmosphere, with friendly efficient staff.

“Impressive, carefree dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

A group of three went to this K. Rd. establishment last week. It's been open for a few years and now I wonder why I didnt go sooner. The food is delish! The service strikes the right balance and the whole place has an edgy-yet-welcoming vibe. It's relaxed, unpretencious dining in a funky atmosphere. We didnt book, I'm not sure if you can, but waited only ten minutes at the bar for a table (Wednesday night). I can reccommend the antipasto platter as well as the Pork and Chicken mains. I initially thought I would have preferred a few more menu options, but the chicken dish that I eventually settled on, was succulent and paired with great accompaniments. It's more for catching up with friends than date night, but it beats the pants off many Ponsonby Rd restaurants just around the corner.

“Best Atmosphere - combined with great food and quality service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

This is definetely a must for all visitors or residents in Auckland - from teh moment we entered the barman made us feel at home - and the red lipstick wearing service team provided everything with a smile - from start to finish. Sometimes the fashinable spots are a little too cool for school, but this was not the case - the staff were welcoming proffesional and relaxed - and we left wanting for nothing. Great cocktails, great food, great service and a great night out!

“Good place to dine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013 via mobile

I have been here twice and enjoyed it both times. Pork belly and risotto balls are amazing. Their pasta special was great too. It has a nice happy relaxed vibe. Only down fall last time was we ordered and a wee while later got told there was a 20 min wait on food. We ordered bread to hold us over as it was late and we were hungry but didn't want to spoil our meal then our meals came out in 5 mins. Just a little niggle. All in all it is a great little busy restaurant which I will be back at
