“Expensive for the location but beautifully presented meals”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

We didn't book, just walked in at 6pm so ordered from the early-bird menu (Think we were the only customers at the time). The restaurant was lovely, the meals were beautiful and well presented. The service was OK.

“Enjoyed the experience very much”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Lovely little restaurant, service was good, food was delicious and very well presented. Thoroughly enjoyed our night. Recommended to us Aussies and didn't disappoint. Booked well in advance and the restaurant was fully booked that night, couples without bookings turned away.

“Excellent Mussels. Fabulous chips...”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

YOu'd expect excellent green lipped mussels here in the Sounds, but the sauce was delicious and the hand-cut fries and aoili went very well indeed with a nice bottle of local reisling. Nice interior and attentive service. Wife saw the rooms and they looked very good as well.

Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

We booked here as we liked the tapas menu. When we arrived the tapas was not available! No indication on the board that it was time limited. So we
Left .

Hello Disappointed,

It does say on the bottom off the Tapas menu that between 6pm & 8pm due to dinner service tapas are not available. Please ask and depending on time restraints we might be able to serve tapas. On the night you came in we were very busy and not able to do these we are sorry about this but our dinner service must come first.

Kind Regards Juliearna Kavanagh

“Delicious”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

Good restaurant, small and more intimate than some of the others in Picton. Had excellent seafood basket for NZD 27 - plenty to eat and we'll cooked and presented. Would definitely go back.
