A really special experience! We took the six courses one matched with alcohol the other none alcohol. Both were great. Each course was a gastronomic delight with fabulous flavours and textures. The starters and deserts were a particular delight.

Amazing dining experience!
The 9 course degustation was absolutely immaculate! Husband had the wine match and I had the non-alcoholic match. This was the ultimate surprise as these non-alcoholic drinks were very impressive, not your usual standard drinks but hand crafted and certainly different to anything I have ever had!
Menu was just superb and lived every minute of this dining experience. Cannot recommend enough!

This is an amazing restaurant- humble in space but superlative in terms of food , amazingly happy and attentive service and generally just wonderful. All the courses were great (but especially the blue cod from Stewart island and the low sugar chocolate tarts they made just for us) and this is the first restaurant that has offered us non alcoholic (mainly low sugar) drinks pairing - for once we didn’t feel like out !! And being able to thank Helen Turnbull and her lovely staff at the end of the meal personally was great !!). Better than any restaurant in Wellington at the moment - we’ll be back😀

My wife and I had the nine course degustation. It was perhaps the best meal we have had in the last five years! Beautiful looking food, well balanced and superbly flavoured. Helen is a unbelievably gifted chef. The support staff are enthusiastic, and hard working. Paraparaumu is not the hospitality capital of the world, but this small restaurant is one of the shining satellites of the culinary universe! Well done!
