The website was a little confusing booked a table only to find it was at the rooftop bar, no problems cancelled and went downstairs. We were optimistic in ordering a starter and mains OMG the food is outstanding and generous. Really wish we didn't order...starters as we struggled through our delicious stone grill meal. The staff were fantastic,helpful, cheerful and professional dealing with some unhappy customers. Simply fantastic!More

My wife and I were walking past thinking bout lunch, and stopped in on a whim, so glad we did. We were seated quickly, and our order was taken soon after, and drinks came out fast. The food .... YUMMY ! My wife said it...was one of the best Eggs Beni she's had ( and she's had them all over the world ), and my Fish, chips and salad was superb. Nice flakey fish, with smooth not to thick or oily batter, chips were perfectly done , and the side salad was more than an after thought like some places. The whole meal was delicious and very well priced.More

We had a work function for a conference in New Plymouth with 80 from around the country. The Rooftop Bar was AMAZING! Food was fantastic, and the following night a lot of the staff wanted to return, so they ended up coming back! Thanks Good...Home/Rooftop Bar team!More

Ordered a Magerita pizza, very disappointing doey base, whole slices of tomatoes made it very soggy. Two to three Basil leaves and covered in oily Cheddar cheese instead of pamarsen cheese as on menu.More

We waited about 45 minutes for our food in a nearly empty restaurant. The lamb was average quality and a small portion. The chicken was a tad better, and the kids liked the pizza and chicken tenders. Overall it was ok but we wouldn’t recommend....The wait staff were friendly and apologetic.More

After doing 22km on the Pouakai Crossing we thought getting take away food here would be a great choice (we went to the Rooftop Friday and it was packed with amazing looking pizzas). We were very much mistaken. We ordered the margarita pizza, beef burger,...fries with gravy and a salad. Whilst the food was ready when they said it would be that’s the only positive that can be taken away. The pizza was bland and doughy. Tomato didn’t taste fresh. It was just a very below par pizza. The burger patty was dry and over cooked, in a bun that had been buttered to death, with onion rings that when lifted up fell apart, served with two tiny pickles and one rasher of bacon. The fries were soggy and the gravy was thin and quite tasteless. Salad ingredients were perhaps fresh at some point in their life but not by the time we had started eating it. Granted we had all of this for a take away and arriving just under 5 mins later than we were told it would be ready, add another 5 minutes walk back to the hotel then that might perhaps take away some freshness. We ate about half of what we ordered and as mentioned above had done a large hike so at that point would have eaten (almost) anything! but overall I would avoid this place.More

From the paint flaking off the tables getting all over our clothes, to the chipped kmart plates, to the chicken wings being weirdly watery, flavorless and barely warmed through. I would not recommend to anyone.More
