Excellent service and food...I cannot comment on price as I was there for a work Xmas dinner and did not pay the bill. Food presentation was great and I loved the Raspberry & lime crème brulee with raspberry sorbet.

We were in Wellington a week, and this was our favorite restaurant. Excellent fresh seafood as well as meat. Quite varied menu, good wine list. Ask for a table next to one of the windows. Comparatively moderately priced.

Came for a light something, service was incredible and the tapas for 2 just hit the spot! Just wish there was more! Cocktails were beautifully made. The food was so delicious.

We had a lamb rump which was excellent. It was with olives and mint as spices with gonocni and zuccinni. A nice glass of a New Zealand cav filled the bill, No complaints
