The food was great and the staff was spectacular. All the dishes we tried were delicious - especially the seafood dishes but quite frankly it was all good. Lots of beer/wine options and perfect location on the water too.

Didn’t know where we were going to have dinner in Good Friday night and drove past this restaurant on they way to Tahunanui Beach. Luckily we were able to book a table for 2 adults and 1 child in a highchair at very late notice. Staff were very friendly when we arrived and the service of the wait and bar staff was efficient. We ordered the bread and dips platter as a starter and a special main meal of pan fried fish, prawns, squid with chips and salad. The dips were tasty but we would have preferred if the bread was toasted. The mains were delicious with the seafood being perfectly cooked. Despite the fact that the restaurant was very busy we did not have to wait long for our meals, which was great considering we had a young child who was up past their bedtime. On leaving we were offered some of their baked goods for free. Great spot for dinner with family, a couple or with a big group of friends.

The styx is right on the wharf at the city end of Wakefield Quay. Amazing selection of food and a platter for 2 that is outstanding. Giant Prawn, Pork Belly, Smoked fish, dips and sauces, delicious. Best place in town to watch the sunset drop behind the mountains, awesome!!
