The place has a really nice little outdoor patio. The staff is very friendly, and I love their backwards facing bar.

Our friends from Tauranga suggested we try Matterhorn. It was a fabulous meal. I had the Lamb Rump and, honestly, I do not think I have ever asked a more tender bit of lamb. It was accurate accompanied by some sweetbreads, delicious green beans and...More
