Great atmosphere, friendly staff and yummy food. We had so much fun ordering lots of different foods to try. The pork belly was particularly good and I'm looking forward to having it again next time.

Loved the food so much we returned the next day. Some interesting combinations, all tasty and designed to share. Good service and reasonably priced. Particularly recommend the mozzarella risotto balls.

Intriguing menu with varied options in a casual outdoor/heated atmosphere. Diners are encouraged to share multiple small and large dishes to more thoroughly enjoy the offerings. It was worth traveling 7000+ miles to eat here!

This place serves great food! We went for dinner and shared a couple of tapas: the little pan with prawns and chorizo, and the risotto balls. They were both amazing. Then, we also shared the fish of the day, which was extremely fresh, and I loved that they just served it pan-fried so you can really taste it. We also... More

Great place for an inventive dinner of both small and large plates. Menu changes frequently but everything we tried was excellent. Good wine choices and my husband had a couple of excellent cocktails and an outstanding ginger beer. Just touring around Eat Street in downtown Rotorua is fun!

The 'sharing' food idea is new to me, and I have only seen it in NZ, We shared three small plates and three large plates between four of us, but that includes two with big appetites. We had plenty to eat and the food was beautifully cooked and delicious. Wine selection was good as was the service.

We have enjoyed many delicious meals in NZ and this ranks very highly among them! We had the crumbed chicken, braised beef, haloumi salad, steak, barley salad and the spiced pear & coconut sago pudding. Those with an experienced palate will really enjoy the creative dishes which are of a very high standard with a lot of attention to detail.... More

I know you shouldn't do this but I chose this restaurant because I loved the name but it lived up to expectations. The staff were really friendly. I wasn't familiar with any of the wines so was offered a taste to see if I was happy with my selection. Food was great. Little touches like mockingbirds on the glasses and... More
