This was one of the more economical places to eat (and drink) on our NZ trip. 2 for one pizzas and cheap cocktails made this place an easy choice. Family friendly and great atmosphere.

A great little slogan, an extraordinary location... when we arrived, there had to be 100 of the prettiest, most robust climbers and guides all celebrating life. Magical experience for us.

We ordered vegetarian, they allow you to chose toppings. Very good crust and flavourful base. They get very very busy given their offers for drinks. Place is lively with option for outdoor sitting.Open till late.
