Meals very good, fresh and I would recommand to take the dish of the day, as well the pastry of the day! Warm atmosphere, the restaurant was full but service was fast!

Food selection is limited, but the location and atmosphere was very good.

We visited this cafe after finding our first choice closed for holidays. The greeting and atmosphere were fine and the menu looked promising with several options that sounded appetising. We both went for the portobello mushroom dish on mash with kumara crisps. What a disappointment! The plates were stone cold (always a bad sign) and the sum total of mushrooms was three small specimens. The kumara crisps were cold and soft and the mash under seasoned and far too plentiful. Overall impression was a plateful of potato with minimal mushroom input. Not worth $27!

I walked around all the cafes in Fox and chose Neve for the choice on the Menu. By the end of the evening the place was full and deserved to be. I had French onion soup (better than my mother made) venison hot pot and apple crumble. 3 cources was a bit ambitious but sometimes you have to test yourself.
The srevice was friendly and efficient, the prices reasonable. All the meals coming out looked well prepared.

Overall the standard of the food was better than we sometimes expect for a village like Fox. This restaurant could hold its head up anywhere.

I really enjoyed all aspects. From the faces of those who received their meals, so did everyone else. I thoroughly recomend this restaurant.

Quite adequate for a cup of coffee and a muffin, but not as good as it was in Kate Taylor days.
