I found salmon was very tender and the dressing with salad was tasty. The scotch fillet was cooked exactly how the wife wanted . And the banana filo pastry and chesse cake was very nice and we'll presented and the kids were welcome and given activities and complimentary lollies. Good easy going place to dine.

Went there on a saturday night. There was me and a friend and were seated at a 6 person table. We were given the menus and was very basic. I ordered silence of the lambs pizza nothing to rave about and my friend ordered chicken parmagana which we could of cooked at home quicker than our wait of 45 minutes.

The waiting staff did great job...such shame that the food let the place down...the pizza was swimming in yogurt dressing and the sundae was such a let down.. and over priced for 3 scoops of plane ice cream and a tiny bit off chocolate sauce ..will not be returning very sad indeed

Dinner was pretty plain. Nothing to write home about, lacking flavor. Brownie for dessert was nice but my friend got the sundae which was well below par. The waitress didn't write down our order and unfortunately there were a few errors in our meals.

First time being at this restaurant and bar in Whanganui. I'm am from Ohakune and enjoyed the ice chocolate that I had received from the lovely waitress/bar staff Mikayla. Ice chocolate was very delicious and I will be back for sure. The nice white high stools are very comfy. Keep the good work going stellar staff

This place is very deceiving as its not the nicest looking restaurant I have ever been to but the food is fantastic. I had the lambs fry which was amazing. My friend had duck which was lush. There was a bit of a language barrier as we wanted shandy and they had no clue what we were talking about. The... More

My daughter and I came into town late and the hotel suggested Stellar. From the outside and the entrance I thought it was just a pub. When we were seated the dining room was nice and we sat by the fire. The food was excellent, very tasty and beautiful on the plate. Also good size portions! Staff very friendly!

Went with in laws for Sat night dinner. I had Venison salad but couldn't finish. Candied walnuts were just covered in uncooked sugar. Venison was to chewy to finish. Salmon sauce was tasteless. Paella was too spicy to be eaten despite not mentioning spice on menu. Wine was brought to table opened and far too cold. They also forgot our... More
