We came in as a group of about 15 on a busy morning after a local event so it was a busy few days for places in Te Anna. The food was very good, well presented and delivered pretty much all at the same time time. We were all very happy with our meals. They had a bit of a... More

We ate dinner here because it was listed on our gluten-free app. Loved the food. The fish and chips were delicious, and the shrimp pasta was as well.

My hubby, myself and my son went to have dinner at the Fat Duck. The resturant was crowned and we were asked to sit at the cafe/bar area until a table was available. Since my son is quite small and found it hard to sit on the bar stool. We told the waitress to find us another table that was... More

Dear Shalu_1911, Whilst you were shocked that we were not able to move you to a free table while you were in the middle of eating your meal, we were shocked at your attitude towards our staff on the night. Mistakes do happen and we always try to fix them right the way, but causing a scene and being abusive... More

This restaurant was the best one in town by far. The service was great and the food was even better. We got fish and chips and the prawn linguine. Both dishes were amazing but the desert was even better. The dark chocolate fondant was to die for. We will be back, no doubt about it.

Great food and good service. Nice decor and would make for a nice dinning experience. The variety was not much but we got what we were looking for :-)

Lovely food, great service. We asked for a steak done medium rare and it was overdone. They offered to re-do it but it would have taken too long, so they waived the steak off the final bill. Nice gesture from experienced waitstaff. The rest of the food was lovely.

The food was good. Took a while to come but all 5 of us had different things and I Had a well done steak so we didn't mind....always better to wait and have freshly cooked food. A reasonably variety and again not too much choice which usually means it's freshly cooked. When there's an enormous variety it worries me as... More
