Now called The Porch. Had a lovely meal here, oyster entree followed by the Snapper mail which was excellent. Make sure you get a side of curly fries, best I have had. Good views across to Rangitoto, only negative was a bit noisy for conversation...More

Kahve is right on the corner of main St Heliers busiest street and offers a fantastic view on beach, Rangitoto island and passers-by. I have stopped there during the lunch time and had a chili burger and secretly hoped that chili won't be strong. It...More

The food was good and good value and suited everyone. A pleasant place for us all to eat. We went quite early and were the only people there. They needed to check about gluten free and our choices were safe.
