We popped in here as it had been recommended and we weren't disappointed. The service fast and efficient. The sliders and fries perfect for our appetite. A modern feel busy with families

Second time coming here, and the service was just as swift and professional as the first time. Drinks in the way of cocktails was a little slow, but everything else was prompt and well timed. Atmosphere is extremely peaceful and relaxed, but with an up beat vibe in the background, and the food is never disappointing. Great for intimate dinners... More

We are regulars at The Garden Tap as we enjoy the casual atmosphere. It seems to be busier and busier so we try to pick our time to eat there, either early at around 6.30pm or after 7.45pm. Love the Classic Burger in The Tap, plus their fries, but sad not to see the calamari on the menu last visit.... More

Went with friends for dinner during the week. They were surprisingly busy, virtually full. All 4 of us were happy with our food. The beef cheeks were excellent, so tender they almost melt in your mouth!

Many tears ago I enjoyed a meal at this restaurant and was looking forward to the return visit. I was extremely impressed with the changes made. The choice of indoors/garden setting, crisp white linen and simple settings, friendly, efficient staff and a well-balanced menu with available compatible wines by the glass or bottle. My choice of the wild barramundi with... More

We have been to this local many times for breakfast and dinner. The food is first class and the staff attentive and friendly. Recently we went there for a Brokenwood wines degustation menu and the it was truly wonderful. In fact we are back there with family this week!

The food is good at the chefs garden, but it is way overpriced. We went for lunch with the family. The service was slow and the waitress seemed more interested in talking to each other than serving.
