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.

We had a lovely night. Service was great and the meal stunning. We had the fillet, the flinstone steak and the lamb rack. Everything was very tasty and we loved the veggies from their hothouse. Definitely worth a visit🙂

I never expected my greatest dinner in New Zealand to be, not in Aukland or Wellington, but far south in Invercargill. The food was original and attractive, well prepared and delicious, accented with fresh veggies, greens and herbs grown on premises. Both the chef and...his co-owner host were charming, welcoming and patient. She helped us select a very good wine and answered our very touristy questions without missing a beat. What an enjoyable dining experience. We stayed for 2 1/2 hours. Definitely recommend.More

I had the blue cod on the saffron risotto infused with cod and crayfish stock which was outstanding. Super fresh, beautifully cooked fish and rice together with a lovely side salad made this the best dinner I’ve had in Invercargill. I also had the citrus...mint soda which was light and tasty. The service was very very good too and I would thoroughly recommend coming here either as a couple, a family or solo like me if you’re travelling for work. Great value for money and a good menu selection that will have something for everyone’s tastebuds.More

Hi I'm guessing their menu is seasonal and frequent changes mean it's not on the website. The food is excellent. If you have a dietary requirement you could call them?

It's not my menu. I was a diner. It's European cuisine with a lot of Southland produce. Very nice
