This is a fun experience for a group. The ambience is lively, the staff friendly. Food is good, but nothing to rave about. It's more the experience which makes it fun.

We visited here last night and our waiter was very friendly and had a great personality. The food was delicious as were the drinks. A thoroughly awesome night, as the ambience in here was buzzing.

Lovely evening meal in a lovely setting near Takapuna beach. Food was well worth it and balanced the inattentive waitress we had.
