Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Awful food. Deep fried out of a freezer bag. Not fresh! Fries were cold and soggy. Shame- could be great but it’s not, it’s bad.

Horrific food possibly the worst restaurant in all of Wellington owing pretty much only to the food. Frozen fish is used in this so called sea food restaurant. Avoid this place it’s terrible

Think I may have already reviewed this place but doesn't hurt to warn people again. This is the biggest dive I've ever eaten in. The food is a joke, it's so bad, as is the service. Smart mouthed woman on reception, suspect she's related to...owner otherwise who would defend this utter dump. Decor has been the same since it was built, tacky. This is prime location, knock it downMore

Service was great, food was average and quite expensive I thought. Salad boat was good, and the fish burger looked good, the deep fried pork wasn’t to my liking, but guess it’s a good job we all like something different. If I’m honest I wouldn’t...rush back for the food.More

Beautiful sea views and amazing food. Bee did a great job ensuring our meal was served quickly. She was very attentive. The food was great we had seafood chowder which we recommend. The Dutch apple crumble for dessert was delicious. We had a lovely view...of the sea but also could see how efficient the kitchen team were when making the meals. Great place for a meal!More

Excellent restaurant. First time we've been here and well worth it. Suburb view over sea and Kapiti Island. Great meals, chicken tenderloins, tib eye steak, fish burger, all you can eat salad. Salad bar was ample, and delicious, huge variety including both cold salads and...also hot veges. Reasonably priced meals and cold drinks with free water on tap. Clean toilets. Staff were very friendly, fast, meals served within 25 minutes. Pavalova was fluffy, big and delicious. No complaints at all. We'll be back next time we pass by.More

Beautiful scenery and great for a walk along the beach after the meal with an access right beside. The athmosphere is great, even when it is busy as Front manager and service overall are excellent. We love the salad boat which never leaves you hungry....Enjoyed the fresh fish and the vegetable lasagne is a great meatless option. The kids love to come and we will take the scenic route instead of the new highway anytime again to visit.More

Without a doubt, hands down the worst food I've ever eaten (although I barely ate anything) in a restaurant. Shrimp cocktail that is actually prawns drowned in sauce, fish that didn't taste quite right all served to you by a young, stupid boy who kept...rolling his eyes because he couldn't be bothered serving anyone. This was a birthday dinner do it was completely ruined. We got the cake back off them and had it at home as we didn't want to be there one more minute. Terrible customer service all round as the duty manager was awful too. Avoid this place like the plague, it's just absolutely terribleMore

Food has gone down hill immensely, Serving rump steak as rib eye. Raw potatoes in the salad And told not to get emotional when stating how terrible the food was. The shrimps in the cocktail are prawns and awful at that!

After having avoided this place like the plague for several years hoping it would have gotten better given the significant increase in cost, we tried it again. And can safely say, we will leave it until the 5th of Never to visit again. Was overcharged,...food was pretty grim and glasses were dirty.More
