Every year we visit Whanganui with our sport team and come here for a feed the night before we compete. The quality of the food is consistent and has a good atmosphere. Our waitress last night was very friendly and kind and it was unfortunate she got a few things wrong with the orders however this didn't bother us much... More

From the welcome to the finale......this place was great! Food was beautifully presented, attractive and tasted divine. Service was unobtrusive yet attentive when necessary. An unexpected little find after a long day travelling. Situated on the corner of the main street and the road along the river, there is plenty of street parking nearby.

We were a group of 4...started with the Mediterranean platter which was great but it all went down hill from there. When we were brought our mains, my friend said to the waitress we didn't have cutlery, and was snapped at. I ordered the Angus medium rare but it was very rare. My friend got the lamb pizza which also... More

We were a group of 14 and there was another of 5 which was the whole service for the night. The surrounding were really nice and the staff were friendly. We are pretty easy to please. The service was very slow and the portions were small. When it came to dessert only two ordered and it took half an hour... More

Went with friends on a Saturday night. I had fish (gurnard) which came on a bed of vegetables which was very well cooked & delicious. Others ordered half n half pizza's with fries. I don't usually rave about fries but these fries were crisp, crunchy & had aioli or tomato sauce with them. The pizza was also delicious I was... More

We were here almost a year ago and the food was great. Tonight I'm left wondering have they changed chefs. The Calamari was terrible, boiled and luke warm zero taste and it was likely eating chewy rubber. . Zero effort was made with the plating and frankly almost unedible . The main was marginally better. I ordered the Thai salad... More

Came in this afternoon after a big day looking for a cold beer a decent snacks. Ordered a kids pizza for the child. This came with fries which were not cooked properly and a very watery sauce on the pizza that prevented any topping from sticking. Shared a fisherman's basket with a friend.
