Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

On the positive side, the staff were friendly, the bar was atmospheric and in a convenient location and the place reasonably clean. We ordered Rib Eye steaks which were served with steamed veg & roast potatoes, one with peppercorn sauce and the other with mushroom...gravy. On the negative side, we asked for one steak to be Rare and the other Medium. Both steaks came out almost Raw, or just barely seared on the outside. We advised the staff member politely but were given a shrug of the shoulders (complete indifference). The only nice tasting things on the plate were the vegetables. Won't be going back.More

Surprisingly, this was about the only restaurant that was open AND one could get a seat New Year's Day. The service was fast, the prices reasonable, and the food was yummy - I had the pork ribs and the meat just "fell off" the bones....It was the best pork ribs I have tasted in many a long year. My friend had the Blue Cod and Chips and it was delicious. My wife had the Pork Belly Bites and thououghly enjoyed her meal as well. Can recommendMore

I had the Blue cod and chips a few months ago and the meal was delicious. I told my brother who had come down from the North Island about it and we went to have a meal but the owners had to alter the hours...due to not having enough staff due to Covid but we hope to be back when he comes down again.More

This bar/cafe was an easy walk from our accommodation and offered a range of meals for our dinner. The staff were welcoming and attentive offering excellent service. The meals were generously portioned, tasty and well priced. We liked that the mains had a small and...larger size option. The blue cod cooked in Steinlager beer batter, served with fries, salad and tartare sauce ($20) and the Kofte ($15) were delicious. Highly recommended!More

Meals were very ordinary, not much lamb in my lamb hotpot. Looked like it was just microwaved food. Disappointing

Had the pork roast which was ok but the pork was dry. No crackle. Staff were very good though. Other meals that came out looked better.

Great service. Meal was full of flavour. My steak was cooked to perfection. I like mine well done and it was still moist with the best mushroom sauce.
