Had lunch with my partner. The staff was busy, stressed and we had to wait rather long for a menu. I ordered sea food soup ($18) which was ridiculously small portion with one halved toasted buttered bread. It was spilt while served on our table, which left me looking surprised at the little left of my main course. Just a... More

One of the best places to have a long black and read the paper. An assortment of muffins and cakes and brilliant service.

Stopped in here for lunch for 2 while driving North from Wellington. Ordered chicken burger and sweetcorn fritters. Meals were delivered reasonably fast and were tasty.The fritters were not the best I ever had (a bit doughy/soggy) but still tasty enough with nice bacon, chilli sauce and nice salad. Burger was well made. Service ok if a little on the... More

Went for dinner and ordered one of the most expensive dishes in the menu-duck and was shocked to see what i got. There were 3 big potatoes served with 2 raw pieces of duck, half of it was fat. The meat was so raw and wondering why the restaurant is charging $40 for such as horrible meal? Please dont go... More

We were recommended this place for breakfast. A mistake. I ordered pancakes and bacon. My husband ordered the liver. The bacon had obviously been pre-cooked and reheated in the microwave. it was hard and inedible. The liver seemed as though it had been hanging around for a few days The cooking fat also smelt old. I went to the ladies... More

Whatever you fancy there is bound to be a tasty sample of it here! Good range of wine: white, red and sparkling. Make a night of it or come in for a light glass with one of their lovely plates. Located in the back of the BIG Orange, one of Whanganui's best coffee sites.

A character place with a bar, indoor and outdoor tables with great orange umbrellas. Known by some as the Orange, this bar provides snacks, coffee brews, brunches, lunches and dinners with a casual ambience that allows for solo, couples and family gatherings.

This place is endearingly shambolic but the food and booze are great. It looks like three mates cobbled together the idea of a restaurant while sitting in somebodies lounge, hammered. They borrowed twenty grand off someone's mum, rented the first ground-floor space on Victoria Avenue they could find, surprised themselves with a winning bid for some surplus bar furniture on...
