This was our favourite dinner we had while staying in Arrowtown. Awesome cocktails, great service, and most importantly yummy food! Must try the Tiger prawn, muscle, and fish fideos! Serious yum. The place tends to get quite busy so would recommend booking for dinner!

Something different in little Arrowtown! Excellent service, super friendly. Great for delicious food and good drinks in a nice and casual but special atmosphere. Its hidden away from the main road.
