Great food. Great wine. Great staff. We booked ahead as it gets busy. Just out of the main town but well worth it (only a 3 min drive)! The owner is very entertaining and can recommend some nice wines. My fave dish was the mushroom/truffle...More

Eight of us from the UK ate here on the Saturday night of the Easter weekend. Instantly entered into a 'rapport' with Danny, so much so that I suggested he chose my food so as to show off his restaurant.... and I was not disappointed....More

This is a 6-7 minute drive out of Queenstown in a residential area, but well worth it. The food is absolutely first rate, different from the usual tourist menu, served by one of the owners in afriendly, laid back but efficient manner while the other owner cooks - brilliantly! Very informal, unusual, relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere . Great wines, great food and excellent value for money. No views, but if you're concentrating on the food,wine and conversation who cares? Highly recommended.
