Went there as a recommendation from a local. I was surprised, the dinner selection (menu) was limited and a touch more costly but the meal was fantastic. The staff were extremely pleasant and they were there for you when needed.

My wife and I ate at Furnace recently and had the fish main course. We love fish however the trevelly was dry and chewy. The rest of the dish was tasty though and the Otago Daily Tart as usual was DELICIOUS! The service was amazing!

My first time here. Service was good, food was quality... the good things! My only niggles were how hard it was to cut up lamb and eat it from a curved bowl style plate... that seems to be a growing trend that is highly impractical....More

They have a great signature steak dish. This is generally a great place for a feed. Up until my last visit I have never been disappointed. I decided for a change to have the crumbed chicken. Sadly I could have used it to resole my...More
