We had dinner here which was amazing - we had lamb and fried fish. Good selection of beers and wines. Staff were really helpful and friendly (head chef Sam even towed our camper van out when we got stuck in the mud!)

End of a long day and a very long road trip down from the Bay of Islands. Just wanted somewhere local and easy so took a local recommendation- way exceeded expectations. Fresh, well cooked and well presented. Friendly too!

The food was really good. The decor was very interesting. Throwback to the fifties and early sixties. The young owners have done a great job with the menu. The "fish of the day" was Hapuka and was fantastic. Highly recommend this restaurant!
