Went here a couple of months ago while visiting New Plymouth.The atmosphere was relaxing, quiet and very cosy for a nice, peaceful night out. We went in just for a drink or two, but the well priced Tapas menu was hard to ignore! There was a wide selection of interesting and exciting sounding tapas. The ones we ordered were absolutely delicious and we even ended up ordering a second round of the Cauliflower and Gruyere fritters! (must try!) Of course the wine was great and the service was friendly, welcoming and very efficient. Looking forward to coming back again next time we are in town!

Just had a really tasty meal and a couple of really awesome local craft beers to wash it down with. Super friendly and professional staff too. An oasis in the taranaki

Delicious tapas plates to share, this bar is small in size large in personality with it's huge array of local and imported wines. It had a outside courtyard.
enjoyable night out in the heart of New Plymouth

The host AJ has an extensive selection of wine and beer, possibly bigger than anywhere else for hundreds of kilometres. What's more, from a beer point of view he knows his stuff and had an amiable engaging nature to boot.
For a beer with a touch of sophistication the hour glass is well worth a visit.
