Wonderful food is to be found here in this little corner of New Zealand. It would stack up against any of our top restaurants. Beautifully presented and cooked to perfection.

We stayed here as part of doing the Otago rail trail. The service was fantastic and staff so friendly. The meal was almost perfect apart from one part of the mains. However throughly deserved 5 stars when the whole package was put together
