If you want a restaurant with everything, this place has it in spades. The friendly staff. the varied menu, the ambience and locally brews on tap. I dined with four friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and drinks. Others had the local blue...cod and home made chips but Ii had a superb meal of lambs fry and bacon with veg with a gravy that was so delicious I had the others on the table licking my plate! Homely desserts to tempt the waistline, its a shame I live in the North Island otherwise I would make it a weekly meal outMore
On a night in Oamaru when nearly everything was closed we were welcomed early on the condition we were finished early for another booking. We had a fabulous meal, efficient friendly service. Happy Easter 🐣
Early dinner here. I had the roast of the day which was pork. Pork was very tasty and melt in the mouth tender. Crunchy crackling, vegetables cooked with a nice gravy. Hubby had steak, cooked well and delicious tasting.
The waitress even returned to check...all was well and to make sure steak was cooked as asked.
Very nice and well worth a visitMore
This was a real treat . Excellent food… nothing fancy but very tasty and well presented . The chowder was one of the best . The service.was first class . Within walking distance of town and harbor side. Dog friendly … outside of course.
We...would definitely stop here again next time we pass. Highly recommendMore
Oamaru seems to have a lot of good restaurants and this was yet another. We were enticed by the menu but couldn't go past the whitebait frtters. They are well cooked and would like to have returned for other choices on the menu. A restaurant...to go back to.More
The food is great. Try the blue cod and roast of the day. The tomato soup is awesome. (I tried everyone's dishes.) :)
The staff were friendly, they told us where to find white stone for souvenirs.
I would highly recommend a meal here when...you visit Oamaru.More
Birthday lunch - best beer battered cod around! Service was fast, warm and friendly - beyond expectations. Outside table in the sun watching the world trundle by. Top marks on all counts - highly recommended. Can't wait to visit again!
