Wonderful menu with lots of variety for everyone. The service was excellent especially on Sunday but yes we went again several mornings for breakfast. The coffee is good too.

Stunning food. We went for an early dinner and had starters and mains. Everything was delicious and reasonably priced. It's just out of the main street so it's much quieter than a lot of other places.

We had just got off the plane from Wellington and headed into town for a couple of hours while we waited for our accomodation to be ready. We saw Halo so went in for brunch and were really glad we did. Delicious, great surroundings and...really nice service from the staff for us and our three children. I would highly recommend this place to others.More

Usually love this place and the food they have to offer! However on my last visit I ordered the vegan french toast (usually love) and wanted a small side of mascarpone, was even willing to pay extra. I understand that this wasn’t Vegan but however...find it a bit horrible that I could over hear the chef from my seat make fun of my request. Considering that this wasn’t a big ask on my part, I am felt rather disappointed.More

I have just written personally to you as this is not the case at all. You overheard wrongly across the restaurant what the chef said to the waitress about charging for mascarpone. It wasnt somehow as you think about making fun of anything So i...More
