A quiet little restaurant with a small but perfectly formed menu. If you were any of the big cities, you would pay a fortune for food of the same quality. Great food, great service.

Stopped here after hiking and the owner was the worst hospitality person I have every met. It is great news that she is leaving. Amazed that she continues to defend her actions after so many terrible reviews. Bring on the new owners!!!

From the very first encounter with the cook/owner we did not feel welcome.
So not interested at all in being a host that I do not understand why she is running this business.

Thank you for your review, I am closing after 10 years with vast, positive and memorable experiences.
You mistakened my unfriendliness for frustration, since your family thought it was okay to invade my place before we opened. You know how parents enjoy their peace before the kids wake-up, well you interupted that for me.There was a sign posted as to what time I opened and was frustrated because trying to finish prep for dinner service. I'm sorry it may have appeared as unfriendly.

We popped in for a quick coffee en-route Karamea to Hokitika. we were very tempted by the array of baked goodies but as we aren't fabulous travellers we gazed in awe. The coffee was excellent - not over extracted which is so important for long black drinkers. The gardens are lovely and the outdoor seating provided plenty of options for sun or shade but more importantly for privacy.

After reading some of the earlier reviews we entered with some trepidation but this was unfounded.

Ordered spicy prawns to share followed by a steak which was cooked to perfection and salmon fish cakes which were tasty although not a huge helping. Good wine list with varied choice from different areas including Nelson which makes a pleasant change from being inundated with wines from The Marlborough Region.The owner was knowledgeable about the wine and although a tad expensive at $45 was a good choice. Slightly surprised that there was no cooler but was easily overcome by placing the bottle in the fridge.

Overall a pleasant evening and highly recommended
