Food was nice and tasty. I had lamb and my partner had pork chop. Nothing really special about the meal. Maybe a little too much mash. Service was good. Probably on the high side of price

This is one of the best restaurants we have been to in Whangarei. Beautiful meal tonight, with very warm and attentive service. Book well in advance as this place is very often full - and deservedly so.

Excellent service and attentive wait staff. Drinks were topped up regularly, including our water. Meals came out in a timely manner and were absolutely delicious. I was very happy with the serving sizes and seasoning.

Usually consists of an entree, mains & desert Haven't partaken of that option for a while used to be $38 per head from memory.. Have to say all we can manage is usually 2 courses only
