Went for dinner when family visited from overseas and enjoyed it. We sat in the sun room, which was lovely. The service was excellent but, although the restaurant wasn't crowded, we waited quite a long time for our our meals. We found the meals to be slightly pricey but very good. The desserts, however, were not worth the calories. All in all, very enjoyable and we will be going back.

The location and atmosphere at this restaurant is lovely however the food and prices do not make it a worthwhile experience.

Lovely setting, nicely refurbished but pricey. We have had breakfast here a few times and it is nothing special yet the prices are ridiculously high. Would by-pass this place and head straight out to the Rasberry café in Tai Tapu, Better food at a more reasonable price.

I came here again for a work do not too long ago.

Poor choices of beer on tap.

Food was a rip-off, $28 for a very small poorly portioned platter of food in the middle, ended up just ordering wedges after that, witch were slightly undercooked and enough sauce for maybe 1/2 the bowl.

Outdoor seating was nice and atmosphere was excellent.

I ordered the Angus burger from the 'favourites' part of the menu and I've never had such a badly put together beef burger ever, with cold old bun, one piece of lettuce and beet root and two small over cooked under flavoured beef patties.

Also extremely over priced at $23 for burger and wedges.

My wife's meal was also terrible and missing things listed from the menu.
