Had lunch here after a morning of looking around the town. I had the fish of the day and my partner had the blue cod- both were amazing! Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for some classic NZ fish-n-chups!!

At the end of the day, we were able to buy a couple of corn scones for our next day's breakfast. They were good, but could have had a bit more flavor. Counter staff was most pleasant!

Great for brunch! Service is fast and friendly and food delicious. It is so great to see the Gluten Free options on the menu. So many restaurants do not offer a variety, and limit their menus to one or two dishes, Unwind certainly caters for...More
