A nice lunch stop with a friendly outside patio (behind the restaurant). Draft beer as well as good food. I can see why it is ranked #1 on TA. We'd go back.

This place has great cabinet food and awesome pizzas by the slice or whole. I had the most delicious burrito I’d had in a long while. My wife had a delicious potato salad. Well priced wine and food. We recommend this establishment.

This place is a buzz, cabinet food is excellent and their pizzas top class. If you are lucky there will be someone on piano also pulling in the crowds. Gets very busy so come early or book ahead. Probably best eating place in Takaka.

The staff are amazing, very friendly and helpful. Shame the food wasn't :( We are a family, our family said that it wasn't the nicest pizza that they have eaten. One of us is Gluten Free Celiac, there isn't a real choice, only salad or...More

Good variety of food, very interesting and well prepared. A bit on the pricey side, but worth the money.
