Loved my GF halloumi salad (beetroot, feta, spinach leaves, roasted nuts, pomegranate seeds, cherry tomatoes and generous lashings of halloumi) with a glass of Cloudy Apple cidar. Friendly attentive staff made my overnight trip to Wellington a pleasure.

Definitely no reservation needed but if you want to make sure that you have a table you should send them an email. I hope that will help. Cheers
