The decor here is kind of rustic and it was very noisy, but the food was delicious. I had fish (Pasifika Speciality) and it was excellent. Other guests raved about the pork belly on kumara mash. The gf chocolate brownie was also scrumptious.

Went to dinner there this evening and was very disappointed. Food quite good but timing of the courses and service very poor. Lots of very young staff who really don't care. Wouldn't recommend this place to friends.

A good night out although I have not been charged for parking in HB to eat out before. Very busy night but the restaurant allows walk ups to delay food service for those that booked. Look after your regulars guys.
