We just popped into this place for a quick meal. Value wise excellent and like wise the food. Had a two mains, one entry and bottle of wine for under $100 ($96 in fact) Fantastic view when you're sitting outside. Quick service and friendly.

Dined here on 2 occasions in the evening good menu also with specials. Eye fillet steak just melted in your mouth washed down with a good red wine. Outside seating overlooking Onetangi beach. Watch the world go by and the sun go down. Helen was an excellent host.
