I had an interesting salad bowl with multiple varied salads, and would happily dine there again. My friend ate a hot meat selection and got herself a free coffee by joining the coffee club. Nice big comfy seating too.

Wonderful food and service. A must do in Queenstown. It was really hard to choose but the lamb was amazing. It’s vegan friendly though which suited my companion. Unique, well-priced wine list. Definitely recommend!
