We had lunch with the ‘new’ menu today which was nothing compared to what it used to be! The menu was written on a piece of A4 paper which looked cheap and nasty. No salads except for an entree dish only of Beef Thai salad. -When we asked if we could have it as a main it was a no, and when we got it it was so hot and very little of it. We then had the crab cakes which were tasteless. My friend had the fish and chips which were fine. The service was great, outstanding in fact, but the new menu, alas, was disappointing. Bring back the old menu please!!

We went to a wedding here over the weekend, I don’t know how they manage to do it, but the food was to the same excellent standard as the restaurant always is. Another beautiful dinning experience, and a beautiful setting for the wedding Thank you staff

Had the worst service we have ever experienced at any restaurant in NZ and we eat out regularly. Booked for two people for 7pm. Table wasn’t ready so our waitress sat us at a table she told us was ‘awful’ while we waited ’30 seconds’ for our table to become free. Took 15 minutes. Ordered pizza bread, entree size seafood fettuccine and main size chicken fettuccine. Waited an hour and asked where our pizza bread was. After 10 minutes the waiter came back and said there had been a mistake and our orders hadn’t gone to the kitchen. He asked who took our order and we explained it had been the head waitress. They were trying to blame the young waitress who was clearly new but much better than the other two senior waiters. Long story short, our mains took another half hour to turn up. No one apologised. We got the entree size chicken fettuccine instead of the main. No one came to ask for more drinks orders. Our ‘pizza bread’ that we had ordered came after our mains and was garlic bread! A disaster all round. And to top it off, the waitress argued with us when we were paying as we refused to pay for the main size pasta, as we didn’t receive it. She said we had as it was clearly on the docket. Unbelievable. Will never go back again. Ever. Shocking. Service suggestion – have one person looking after each section so the waiters know which step in the process each table is up to – no one knew what was going on and two other tables complained while we were there.

Decided to take my husband out for dinner as a treat. The prices for the meals were about what I would expect to pay for a main $30 average. The quality is a totally different thing again. I ordered the Fish of the night with Steamed Vege and Potatoe. Sorry guys but it really was a meal suitable for a group of Geriatrics. Sloppy mashed spud, one piece of very soft pumpkin, one piece of Cauliflower and one piece of Broccoli. If my meal looked ANYTHING like the meal portrayed in the photograph (picture 2) I would have absolutely NO complaints at all. My husband ordered the Eye fillet steak which was very good BUT again the vegetables were a joke and thats putting it mildly. Will not be returning and certainly will not recommend this eatery to anyone we know.
