We had a wonderful night here again. Service is friendly and warm with great knowledge of the wines and food. Meals were truly mouth wateringly good. The Oysters were the bigest and tastest we have ever had (and we have had a lot!). Can't wait to return.

GD and i had a few hours to commune together during a major sport event and TA and WOM led me here


Background..lots of Michelin starred places, hatted Oz restaurants and good local places
Service...excellent..felt at home but still special, great view out of window over the city and sunset

Food..went local with Bluff Oysters and Venison for me..really good, HH..did fish and chips which she enjoyed, GD did the specialty oyster which were special as an entree
Dessert..gone!
Wine selection...excellent

One thing i was told was that this restaurant was very pricey but TBH after eating at Drunken sailor at Stirling Pt this was a bargain (30 + for a main there ) , just under 200NZ for the 2 of us, 3 courses + wine..took the dregs with me as i was the only over 18

Negatives for the restaurant...not in the main drag..++ it's not in the main drag.so you et something better than a packaged box

Previous NZ dining to give you a reference
Panorama Mt Cook ( is better), but only the A la carte
Corsterphine House Dundin ( is not as good)
White Hilton (is better)
Queesntown (soz can;t remember but it was $400 for 4 and not far from burger place overlooking lake) worse
Pure taste Paihia (simiiar)

$ for food,,,wins hands down

This restaurant looks nothing from the outside - like a scruffy shop. But inside and upstairs is an elegant dining room. Great friendly service and good wholesome food. Large portions and although I wouldn't say the food was as sophisticated as it makes out it was delicious.
