Called in for dinner on our first night in Invercargill. Found it by just wandering around and following a recommendation by a local we talked to. Nice friendly service, happy to chat briefly while keeping service up elsewhere, and also pleased to recommend items. I had a Caesar Salad and it was absolutely one of the best I've ever had - thanks for the recommendation by our server. Had a bottle of wine between us which was also good and generally spent a happy time there. Would go back if in the area again - recommend

Arrived in Invercargill and just googled restaurants in the area. Picked this one as it looked ok. Thankfully we had better than ok! 👌Food was so good, and atmosphere was great. Big shout out to Divya James who was our waitress, very welcoming and made our evening such fun. Thank you Divya x

I’ll just come out and say it…2 weeks into our NZ trip and we have eaten very well, but this restaurant was the standout best so far.
Lovely setting and when we arrived it was almost full, and they mostly looked like they were local people, rather than tourists (like us) so that’s a great sign.
We were promptly greeted and seated and had the specials of the day explained to us.
Our waitress, Lisa was very knowledgeable of the menu and helpful.
Good drinks list and an extensive food menu.

I had the fish of the day, Hoki, and it was absolutely delicious.
Hubby had steak with a mushroom sauce and he says it’s got to be the best steak he had had in five years. Now that’s saying something for him.
We don’t usually order dessert but as the food we had so far was so delicious we just had to try the dessert of the day and it did not disappoint. An apple, apricot and chocolate crumble.

All the staff that we had interactions with were helpful and friendly, I just can’t fault this restaurant.
Do visit when you are in Invercargill, you won’t regret it..
