We had a wonderful lunch at The Duke. We love the historic building, the view over the bay, and the ambience; the staff were attentive and excellent, and the Duke’s seafood platter was outstanding - fresh and beautifully prepared with an exquisite array of flavours. Even the sides - hand cut fries and coleslaw were delicious. The drinks were excellent too - great selection of beers, tonics, wines and whiskey. The Omata Pinot Gris was lovely. All in all a memorable meal.
