“Christmas Day Lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

Was a little bit disappointed with the food especially as it was Christmas Day and it was $95 per head including young children and the elderly. I understand it was Christmas Day re the cost, however there could have been more choice and not been so rushed. There was ham and rolled turkey, some salads and fish. Smoked eel had been frozen and thawed, salmon bit tasteless with lots bones. Little spring carrots, broad beans, baby beets would have been nice. Dessert choice was minimal, pav, trifle, fruit salad, choc gateaux and fresh fruit. Soup starter was nice.Have been here before and was much better. Will not go back for special occasion lunch. Our group was a party of 14. The waitress's were lovely

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

Tucked in among the trees on the Otago Peninsula is this truly unique venue.
Their buffet meal is legendary and the setting is to die for.
We have had many occaisions to celebrate here and have never been disappointed.
Put this on your bucket list.
