We were in a party of six. I think everyone was reasonably pleased with their meals. We were seated in a large booth and I think it was the was uncomfortable restaurant seating I've ever encountered. One of our group was on the short side and complained that her legs were going to sleep because her feet never touched the floor. The booths looked really nice but I think it was a case of style over function. Service was okay until we wanted coffee and couldn't get anyone's attention. We gave up and paid our tab.

The restaurant has a comprehensive menu serving everything from steaks to fish and chips.
The service was excellent and our waitress attended to all our needs promptly and efficiently.
I shared a crock of Green Shell Mussels then went for the 300gm rib eye steak.
Others with me had the venison steak, venison pie or fish and chips.
Whilst the food was acceptable it wasn't particularly special and after 3 weeks in NZ we had come to expect better.

Went here twice on our visit - had burgers and fries and then two main entrees. Very good food and service - for a great price!

Overall,this restaurant offers a lot of good options and a special value menu. The quality of the food is very average, however. We ordered a burger well-done and it came back rare in the middle. The spaghetti dish was pretty good. The helping of fries that comes with the burger is generous. To their credit, when we sent the burger back, the chef cooked us a new burger. The staff were attentive and the restaurant itself is comfortable. It is part of a hotel, interestingly.
