Such a friendly reception on a hot day and lovely freshly made salad for a lunch break in the shade, the reception staff and I think manager were so welcoming and efficient quick service with plenty of chilled water

This is not a place for fine dining as the service is slow but the food is OK. The place is understaffed but then they cater far the theater crowd so people are in a hurry to get seated before the show starts.More

Thanks for your 4 stars. And for your understanding! Our resident witches get it wrong occasionally. At times we do get an unexpected rush due to Movie patrons wanting a lovely wine, or super coffee to take into the movies. We have many risk management...More

Awesome Paul, glad you enjoy CC's. With summer on us, we're loving the patio for breakfast or evening dining-with white roses and bougainvillea to add to the awesomeness.

Thanks, we think..... As long as you enjoyed it, we're happy! But Crikey! Did you order chips for breakfast? LOL. Our brunches are legendary here: free range eggs and bacon and loads of healthy and yummy options to fill Sunday tummies. See you back here...More

Clean and comfortable cinema, has several films screening daily. Reasonable cost especially for the loyalty card if you see several films. Limited range of eats at the counter on the way in, good coffee at Cafe next door. Centrally situated, easy parking opposite.

Description
"IT'S YOUR PLACE" ...That's what we like to say, so welcome to our place which is also your place. We enjoy the company of our local clientele who have become regulars at the restaurant and created a great community with whom we share our lives every day. It's the 'local' place to hang out for coffee and chats and a great place for meals all day. Our chefs are passionate about fresh food, prepared beautifully and served with style. We are committed to healthy and delicious food that satisfies all tastes, so whether it's our famously tender and tasty calamari, or our weekly fish dish specials, or a vegetarian delight, a hearty steak, or a divine dessert, we'll have something just for you. Our commitment to sustainability and environmental awareness is important to us, and we serve free range chicken, pork and eggs. We recycle everything we can from bottle tops (Kidney Kids Foundation fundraisers), to food waste (pigs, and compost). Our community,our tamariki (children) and the wider whanau (family) mean everything, and we support our local charities and services wherever and however, we can to support our community. So...Welcome...To your place.
