This restaurant never fails. Delicious food, delightful staff. Love the different food choices such as beefalo. Gourmet meals that don’t skimp in size but are well priced. Lovely surroundings- not too noisy even when full due to the separated areasMore

A group of us (14) visited here for dinner last Sunday. The service was fantastic from the moment we arrived, our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding, the Blue Cod is a must try when visiting the lower south island.More

Christchurch to Invercargil is a rather long drive. Knowing that we will be going to this restaurant is always a focus to shorten the trip. Amazingly diverse menu that delivers top flavours and choice. A must if you have ventured down south.More

The staff at this restaurant need proper training. Being constantly referred to as "youus", an uneducated version of referring to the customer, is very wrong and down grades the restaurant. The menu is very comprehensive. Unfortunately the only meal that delivered was the seafood chowder....More
