“Stone Grilling....Cook Your Own”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

I was seated in the patio area which was very nice. I ordered the stone grill mixed plate of lamb, steak, and chicken. I was advised I did the cooking on the stone. The hot stone comes with a salad on one side plate and chips on the other side plate. The only problem is there is no plate to move the meat, just the hot stone. I tried to eat the lamb while the steak and chicken were still cooking and then the steak while the chicken was still cooking and then finally the chicken. This is just an odd way of doing things.

“VERY GOOD PUB STYLE FOOD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

The menu is fairly basic however, the food is exactly as described and quite reasonably priced. A nice outdoor patio and ice cold beer make for a very enjoyable experience.
Staff are friendly and accommodating and its nice to view some of the local "funkier" types chilling out here. Not a fine dining establishment but then again, they don't claim to be......
Overall VERY GOOD!

“These guys can cook fish!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

Overnighting in Motueka, we decided to try this place, while the teens headed to McDonalds. Telephoned to make a reservation, to be told that there weren't any other bookings so would probably close early! Not a good start! Phone was then clearly ripped from the speaker, to be replaced by a friendly voice declaring we could book any time that was convenient! And so glad we did!
Arrived at 7.30pm to find 4 other groups already dining. Phew - not the only ones! Fabulously cool decor inside an old methodist church - and you can't miss this from the street either! Service was prompt and friendly as was the arrival of our first course. Old fashioned shrimp (prawn) cocktail and seafood chowder were delightful, with the chowder particularly creamy and full of different fruits of the sea, not just chunks of white fish. But it was our mains that were the surprise - FOTD was Gurnard and my choice was the Anatoki Salmon (we'd caught salmon ourselves at Anatoki earlier in the holiday). AMAZING!!! Himself couldn't stop talking about the gurnard, while the salmon melted in the mouth. Delicate and cooked to perfection and a wonderful evening to finish our Golden Bay holiday! It seems from other reviews that this restaurant can be a mixed bag, but we cannot fault it! Thank you for a lovely meal!
