Had their rib special. For $44 you only got 1 rib and small serving of duck fat roasted potatoes and dry no-dressing slaw.
The flavours on the rib was delicious - couldn't fault it. But the quantity was crap. Was not a main size and not worth $44. Disappointing for a place that I enjoy dining at.

The paua wontons were recommended and didn’t disappoint, they were delicious. Mains of lamb and beef short rib were also yum. Great service and wine recommendations. An iconic part of Northland dining, highly recommend!

Nick and the team never fail to impress from arrival to departure it was a wonderful experience. We were greeted and directed to our table overlooking the Tutukaka Marina, the wait staff were attentive and informative, which enhanced the relaxed atmosphere. The food, as always was a celebration of local and fresh produce, paired with a great wine selection. Highly recommended !!!
