Can't fault the food really but we did think that the meal for 2 was a bit of a rip off, $84 seemed a bit on the pricey side even if you do get 2 sides with it!!

I met up with some friends from Auckland here during a torrential downpour, the fire was roaring and provided great warmth and atmosphere on a bleak day. We ended up spending a couple of hours here late afternoon drinking pots of tea...which would be the reason I'd come back. Best selection of tea around, authentic herbals served in teapots (no pseudo fruit flavoured tea here). The staff were attentive but not interfering and provided great recommendations. I was pleasantly surprised.

This restaurant was recommended by my tour guide and I was very pleased! It's Saturday night and they were fully booked but were able to take me since I was early and solo. I ordered two starters that were both delicious. The menu is varied; everything looked yummy. It was hopping when I left so booking ahead would be essential.

Not much to look at from the outside but the food was actually very good, the staff were friendly and it was a comfortable rest from a winter day walking around town. Best place near the gallery and gardens.
