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.

My wife, son and I went for an oyster lunch recently. The oysters were ok but the chips were very very salty which rather took the gloss off the experience. Spoke to two staff about it which was a complete waste of time. One of...the staff, a young Asian guy was very friendly and smiley the other a young female was just ok..very robotic and just seemed to be going through the motions. Would not recommend or go back based on that experience.More

Dined out for Sunday Brunch 17 September 2023 with family. Amazing selection of food suitable for all tastes with staff happy to adapt to one diner who had medical dietary requirements. Serving sizes were absolutely suited to the style of menu. Incredible staff who fulfilled...every wish/need. An additional highlight was being farewelled on our departure, by all staff who had been in contact with us during our dining experience. Highly recommend this establishment. As the out-of-towners in the group of 8, we will definitely return to enjoy the atmosphere and hospitality whenever we are back in Invercargill.More

Went for a Saturday morning breakfast with friends. Meals were luke warm, muffin wasn't toasted, hollandaise was quite bland. Service was ok. Had heard mixed reviews but I probably won't go back.

The coffee and meals were excellent. Apricot slice was great. I had a martini , for sonething different, with pink gin and it was very strong and only $13. I ate here 3 times. Perhaps needs more variety in menu but that's my food preferences....I thoroughly recommend. The staff are pleasant and its air conditioned. I am not sure if the Indian man is the owner but he made everyone feel welcome and valued.More

Have been 3 or 4 times for mainly lunch and enjoyed our meals. The last time we went the waitress mucked up our order and refunded the meal that was mucked up. Been keen to try Chicken Parmigiana that was on the Dinner menu so...I took my Mum out for tea. Only 3 other couples there. Waitress With the blue hair took our drinks order but nearly came back for us to order meal so we ordered at counter. Mums meal was luke warm and small than the lunch meals we usual get. And I am still waiting for mine to arrive............ Mum was finished her and I had to ask where mine was? They were all looking confused. I said if it had been forgotten that I would just have a refund. They gave me a refund and meal to take as I was going out the door. Two muck ups in the last 2 weeks not keen on going back now. I like to support new businesses but it's very unorganized. JodeeMore

Positive Experience. Good value for cost. Very well staffed and helpful service. Not too long to wait. Might need to moderate servings for lunch. Very spacious.

Great food, big portions and all 6 of us are definitely going back. Friendly helpful staff too. Shame they didn’t have paywave or accept credit cards.

Brought two small coffees and got charged $12.10. The coffees were great but Charging $5+ for a coffee is ridiculous. Might be a good option to play some music in the restaurant and have a clear cafe area
