Good restaurant with fireplace inside and warm atmosphere. Customer service is very friendly and families with kids are welcome. A great place to have lunch in beautiful Lyttelton. Recommended.

Visited twice whilst staying with family in the area. Could not fault anything, had pizza once and then chicken which were lovely and very tasty. Loved the zucchini chips too. Reasonable price too would definitely recommend.

Fresh pasta daily made, very thin pizza with real tomato, very good entrees and the best fish pie I've ever taste.
