Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had a steak and onion burger and it was delicious. They were busy so I went for a walk and they rang me when it was ready. Good service.

We decided to have blue cod and chips (plus a few scollops for my husband). It was all delicious and well-cooked.

Waiting an hour and twenty minutes was rather excessive. Fully understand they did their best. It was a busy night. But got home and the order was wrong too. Still ate it up as was starving.

A value for money meal. Nice and hot, but the fish needed extra time to drain, it was very soggy with oil.

I went in one busy weekend night and the i assume owner was being very very rude to the young lady who was working there. Who may i add was doing her job really well from what i could tell. One must not ever assume...they are better than someone else. Or tear someone else down due to stress. She was helpful polite and smiley dispite the owner. The fish and chios were good but experience left a sour taste in my mouth. I wont be back. To the yoing worker no your worth and stick to it.More

A nice meal. The fish was especially good and fresh, but much smaller than we get in Christchurch. The kumara chips were also good, but slightly underdone. Will wrapped and included a piece of lemon. Not at all greasy. Would definitely return.
