Reviewed 26 February 2017

As i was staying at the Motel side of it, it was only going to happen that i would spend sometime there - It has a good relaxed feel where you can just chill and meet people, from beers and meals in the two undercover areas or inside where you can watch sports or play pool... For me, to be honest i thought the service was good and prompt though i was not blown away with the Fetticine i order, it tasted average but maybe i was expecting something much better -

This was really the only time on our trip were we felt like we did not belong. Even though our waitresses spoke english, there seemed to be a major breakdown in communication. We came in and were unsure if we were to be seated ourselves or wait, and when we asked the staff they seemed more confused then us! This was just the start of a continuing uncomfortable experience for anything we needed. Lots of blank stares when trying to ask for things like tomato sausce or water or a beer refill, or where to pay. Only time on our trip to New Zealand where we really struggled.

Long store short, the food is good enough to recommend but the hassle of the service made us not want to return.

Dear Guest,

At the onset I would like to comment that we are a very busy and a big restaurant in terms of covers. Our server invariably escorts each and every guest to the table and take their orders. During busy times,we expect the guest to wait when they enter for a server to escort them.

We employ servers from all nationalities as we get guests from different Nationalities who are not very comfortable with English. The server serving you was from France. Instead of making yourself uncomfortable you could have easily asked for another server who knew English or rather could understand your accent of English.

I do not see a point as to what led you struggle so much because as per my investigation the server answered all your questions and gave you whatever you wanted.

Since we were staying over here for a couple of days, we had to try the place out for at least one meal. We friends are more of a chicken crazy lot with an exception who defines more is less.

Turns out that we ended up having two or I think three meals here. Overall the food was in one word scrumptious. The staff too is quite polite and helpful that makes you enjoy your food more.The salads and mains are well decorated and the meat is tender.

They had good pizzas but we only had the Chicken topped one which was very good. Presuming that the others too would be equally nice.
