Fantastic service, great food, nice setting and a great vibe. The staff were excellent and attentive, the mood in the restaurant for lunch was really nice. The mains were delicious, entrees were good but not exceptional.

We wanted some seafood but not the usual. WOW what a treat. Seared tuna appetizer with marinated shitake mushrooms with other items....divine! Scallop appetizer presented beautifully and "double yum". "Fish of the day" Akaroa salmon - doesn't get much better than that! Port and cheese....Overall an amazing meal.More
