“Special occasion dining”
Reviewed 12 May 2012

Need that quiet intimate dining experience where the service is slow and the food delicious. Then a deco is the place to go - leave the kids at home, get your posh frock on and polish your shoes. Relax, the food arrives when it is ready so if you only have an hour for dinner then go to McDonalds.

“Nice food in a nice setting”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Came here on a Saturday night. It was quite busy and things did not get off to a great start with the waitress sitting us down, then promptly forgetting to get us any menus or drinks. After 5-10 mins we had to ask for some menus as we were getting quite hungry by then! Things did improve and we were overall quite happy with the food and the other waitress who eventually took over was very friendly and helpful. I had the cold leek and potato soup followed by the panfried hapuka. Both were nicely flavored and cooked. The food was not outstanding by any means, but it was fine and the atmosphere was nice. I thought the food was a bit overpriced for the quality but the portions were reasonable. The dargsville kumaras that we ordered as a side were divine. Would consider coming again if we are in the area.
