What a find this restaurant is, we didn't even know it existed. It's nice to know that Rotorua really does have a top of the line fine dining restaurant that I would recommend. I had the hot smoked salmon which was delicious and my partner had the fillet steak, both cooked to perfection. Really lovely atmosphere in there too, great place for a special evening of romance!

This little gem of a place was not on the beaten path, but after I had been to Hells Gate the ladies out there told me I had to try this. So being a little daring I took my otherhalf and we ventured to it. What a place. Stunning layout, stunning service, but the food, Ervin the chef needs to be commended. The food was delicious, I had the lamb, my partner the beef...WOW. Foodies, this place is a must, a real must. Its that little hidden gem, better than any where else we have eaten in New Zealand.
