The family from Auckland and Tauranga met in the middle to celebrate a family birthday, adults only, no children. The staff were incredibly accommodating and helpful, from customising meals to helping blow up some balloons. Our party was delayed by half an hour (Auckland traffic)...More

Top shelf, they deliver fantastic service with a smile, great food and ambience. We dined as a group of six, all enjoying our entrees and mains. All very very good. The desert maybe left a little room for improvement. Overall a great night out
