The scallop entree was good and the NZ Salmon excellent combined with two salads : haloumi and beetroot. Would have scored more highly but there was a long gap between entree and main.

Food, service, atmosphere and drinks very very average. I'm not sure who thinks this place is "amazing" nothing about this place is amazing! We were hosting a very important American colleague and wanted to 'show off' a decent place in Wellington. Urgh! How wrong we...More
