We went there for our anniversary lunch.The steak was better than the most expensive steak-house in Palmerston North.We the only customers mid-week in the bar and our service was really top notch.My wife managed to extract $50 out of the pokies.While this was happening I shared with the staff that she had terminal cancer.When the dessert came it was outstanding in its Kapitai Creaminess. Would return for a second visit in a heart beat.

Had a really nice meal here with my girlfriend. The food was very good as was the wine. Wasn't too expensive and our server was very friendly. Was a little bit cold in there but I've kind of got used to that in New Zealand!

Lovely place for a catch up with friends or a stop off on your way through to other places. Fire is great inside on a cold winters day or sit out in the atrium and catch the sunny rays and watch the river and the world go by. Food is good, wine is cold & the atmosphere is friendly
