What a magnificent finale meal and evening for our NZ-Aust group of 12. We loved everything about this unique restaurant - the food and service and value were exceptional, the two gluten free meals included. Thank you to the team.

We walked in off the street after eating some great reviews on Trip Advisor, and were lucky enough to get the last available table. Small restaurant that can accommodate 40, with a very friendly and talkative host, who made you feel very comfortable and relaxed....More

The restaurant was recommended to us by our shuttle driver on the way to Hanmer Springs so we made an effort to eat there and we are so glad we did. It's a straightforward menu with a sampling of choices from around the world. As...More

We picked this restaurant from the reviews even though the photos looked slightly different from what we would normally expect. We were not disappointed. it is quirky and different but has character and food flavours that you simply will not find elsewhere.

NOT CORRECT. now that we have been we know they do two beautiful gluten free options. And they’ll describe to you exactly what flours they use for those. Two in our large group were ecstatic about their meals. Enjoy!
