All in all a very nice experience and came away feeling full in the 6 course menu. The complimentary bubbles for our anniversary were much appreciated

Really nice food and excellent service. It felt like a capital experience rather than a Kapiti experience. Will be back.

The degustation menu was delicious and satisfying. Next time we would love to try the wine paring. As driving didn't allow us this time. The time slot we had on the table for the 9 course didnt feel enough. Our meals were prompt and fresh but too rushed. We were celebrating a birthday and did as for a little break which didnt happen. We then had to leave as soon as we had finished the final course as the next booking arrived to take our table. Just half an hour more to digest and sip drinks would had been perfect. Thank you for a lovely seasonal menu.

The food was outstanding. We found the ambiance at odds with the well thought out, beautifully presented food. Even a single small flower or little candle on the table would have created an atmosphere more in alignment with the wonderful food.

Really enjoyed the experience. Will come back for another special occasion. The room needs some more ‘warmth’ (maybe more art on the walls) and the lighting needs to be improved.

We had the greatest experience at 50-50 recently. The staff were welcoming, the atmosphere was perfect and the food was amazing! We particularly loved how each dish was explained to us as it was served, the food told a story of Helen's passion. She served us personally on 4 or 5 out of 9 plates. It's easy to see why 50-50 is standout because there is a real want to share that passion. We were still buzzing at the weekend and hands down recommend 50-50 to anyone who is looking for a true 'night out'. Best in NZ , EASY!

Out of the 6 dishes only 2 were to our taste. It would have been nice to perhaps have a choice of alacarte. We were also disappointed that there were no vegetables served with any of the courses. It was unfortunate that we had a rather noisy table next to us which made it very hard for us to talk as the noise reverberated around the restaurant

A fun and interesting experience. Food was generally top notch. Only exception was the crispy pork (with the Mussel Mouse). It was very tough and chewy. Atmosphere was at best average. Very basic premises and furnishings. Also I was surprised to be given desert spoons for the soup. Service was excellent, timely and informative. Over all, I felt it was about 15 % to 20% over priced.

The food was excellent. If we come again for a special occasion we would go for the 6 courses, not 9 as it was too much. Very interesting flavors. We did find the beef cheeks too rich for the 7th course. Maybe we could have coped with them earlier in the menu. I also would have liked a small sorbet at some stage to cleanse the palate. WE so appreciated the glasses of bubbles for us all thank you.

Really enjoyed the 6 course degustation menu. Each course was delicious and unusual. Would’ve liked a more extensive wine list by the glass 😋 Fantastic to have somewhere like this in Kapiti.

our first visit to 50/50 and it exceeded our expectations so much that we booked another visit before leaving. Found the food first class, the wine match was excellent. All the staff were very knowledgeable about all courses and wine and made us all feel very welcome.
