Awesome staff and great vibe we are visiting from up north and went back a second time! If you are going on the weekend I recommend that you book a table if you are a bigger group as it's a popular spot.

View- great
Food- value for money and something for everyone

We booked it out for a family function. We had 50 people attending.
The setting with its night views over Wellington city was stunning. The service was top notch - friendly obliging and helpful. The food was excellent and received many positive feedback from family members. Di the manager was a joy to work with.
Recommend this place highly.

Walked in at around 4pm and was standing there waiting for my wife to swipe in. I picked up a menu then a lady at the counter said "You come talk to me..!!. Don't pick up the menu, the kitchen is closed. You come talk to me..!! you can have cold drinks".
Really rude attitude and approach.. so we walked out. We won't be back. We are local Kelburn folk.

Lovely place and nice food but distressed that none of us were asked for vaccine passes. Neither were others. Felt quite unsafe. I feel we should’ve been able to rely on staff to follow the rules without asking.

Hi Ruth
I am alarmed to hear this. The staff are very aware that this is a mandatory part of our business now.
I appreciate you taking the time to give this feedback & we have implemented a better system to ensure we are not missing anyone.
Thank you Di (Owner)

Due to its location and great views expectations were high, the food was excellent, possibly the best baking in NZ. Highly recommended
