We stumbled across this restaurant during our trip to Queenstown and the experience was so great we kept going back each night we were there.

Hubby and I wandered around and stopped here because of the pork rib description on the menu outside. He had the ribs. I had the risotto which was better than I had anticipated. Both were good but pricey. The service was excellent.

Service was quick and friendly. Food was good but not fabulous for the price you pay. My fish was drowning in sauce which was unfortunate. I wouldnt race back.
