Decent meal with ok service. Don't expect 5 star. Good menu options. A bit on the pricey side, but very little other options in town. most close at 5 Pm

Thank ian j

Had dinner that night which was West Coast waitbait, it was nice but very expensive for what was provided. As I was staying in the hotel i also had breakfast which was also good. Staff were very good, friendly and helpful. View is very nice over to the beach, and bar has nice couches for relaxed drinks.

It was ok. For the price and location I was expecting AWESOME and it was very AVERAGE, Service was really very excellent actually (very kind, friendly and attentive wait staff) but food was very ordinary and let the experience down. It was the only meal we ate in New Zealand that we were quite disappointed in. My husband ordered the chef special lamb, which looked beautiful on another table, but the cut we received was the grisly, overcooked endcuts and not at all the nice inside cuts the table next door received. I had the fish special, which did not come with brussel sprouts as promised (came with bland, unseasoned cauli/broc/carrot mix). The fish was bland too. Nice view though. The food up the Blue Bluff hill is much better!!

We had planned to arrive for dinner at 7.30pm but unfortunately had a 2 hour delay starting from Nelson which meant we were still in Greymouth at 7.30pm! Rang the hotel who put me through to the restaurant where the manager couldn't have been nicer and reassured us that the dining room didn't shut until 9.00pm. We arrived at 8.30pm and felt guilty that we were the only diners in the restaurant but the staff were very friendly and no-one tried to 'rush us'. All very relaxed. We ordered our meals and after having a couple of drinks our food arrived - all attractively presented. Food was very tasty and appreciated after our very long drive. Not much on ambiance but I'm sure that was due to the lateness of the hour (and being the only diners) and the fact that they were setting up for breakfast. We didn't mind , just grateful we were served with such equanimity and friendliness. Had breakfast here as well. I had the full breakfast, very filling and great value for money
