A very ordinary environment. But very good food. Friendly and very efficient service. Choice in the menu. The Penne Pasta was so good. Creme Brulee excellent. Dim the lights, light the candles and some music would make a huge difference here. Menu well priced.

This restaurant is small but looks as if it has been recently updated, so first impressions were good, apart from a general food smell throughout (perhaps poor ventilation in the kitchen?) The cream of mushroom soup was very gloopy, with an odd flavour, and really...More

Dined last week whilst visiting TImaru. I had the best Seafood Chowder I have ever had (would have almost been enough on it's own) and the most succulent Venison as a main. The staff were always smiling and the restaurant was very clean. The decor...More
