Stopped here for lunch, but not much to choose from. Tables on the main street, but offerings don't match position.

We haven't been out for a date night for a while and Ceramic was the perfect choice. Outdoor seating right in the heart of town to watch the world go by, excellent service, and the best food in town. What more could you ask for? Highly recommended. My tip - poke your head in even if the place looks quiet.... More

had lunch here with family from overseas, it was the first place we came across and took a seat inside. Waited more than 15min before anyone even considered approaching us. If we didn't have the kids with us we would of gone elsewhere in a flash. Food was average and one of the meals was wrong.

Had lunch with my partner. The staff was busy, stressed and we had to wait rather long for a menu. I ordered sea food soup ($18) which was ridiculously small portion with one halved toasted buttered bread. It was spilt while served on our table, which left me looking surprised at the little left of my main course. Just a... More

One of the best places to have a long black and read the paper. An assortment of muffins and cakes and brilliant service.

Stopped in here for lunch for 2 while driving North from Wellington. Ordered chicken burger and sweetcorn fritters. Meals were delivered reasonably fast and were tasty.The fritters were not the best I ever had (a bit doughy/soggy) but still tasty enough with nice bacon, chilli sauce and nice salad. Burger was well made. Service ok if a little on the... More

The meat was so raw and wondering why the restaurant is charging $40 for such as horrible meal? Please dont go... More

We were recommended this place for breakfast. A mistake. I ordered pancakes and bacon. My husband ordered the liver. The bacon had obviously been pre-cooked and reheated in the microwave. it was hard and inedible. The liver seemed as though it had been hanging around for a few days The cooking fat also smelt old. I went to the ladies... More

Whatever you fancy there is bound to be a tasty sample of it here! Good range of wine: white, red and sparkling. Make a night of it or come in for a light glass with one of their lovely plates. Located in the back of the BIG Orange, one of Whanganui's best coffee sites.
