I went to harbour fish shop get fish meal but was a fish mart. Went turn round and spotted The Works by fluke. I was not disappointed. Friendly staff, fantastic menu finally made up mind, seafood chowder. While waiting I watched food taken to tables looked fantastic. Wish I ordered battered beer fish n chips, next time. Mine comes wow! Huge bowl of seafood chowder with toasted sliced homemade bread Gorgeous presentation, delicious.washed with a beer. Like Arnarld said, I'll be back! For more

Everything was just lovely. Ambiance, staff, food, price - all wonderful. Parking area a bit pot holed.

Luckily, we arrived there early so we still got a table even we didn’t book. The presentation and the taste of the food were excellent. The portion is perfect. The staff was super nice. You should try this restaurant if you are in that area.

We went to The Works for a Sunday lunch and enjoyed it a lot. My partner had a big breakfast which was really of a good size and very yammie. The only remarkable thing was that it had just 1 egg which is not very kiwi like... I had a wrap with smoked salmon and I was wrapped with that. Not too heavy but enough for me and also the taste was very good! They have a lovely veranda but the weather was just not good enough to sit outside.The inside could do with a good lighting plan as it is quite dark which makes the place a bit sad looking. Overall a good food experience and we will be back for sure.
