Thoroughly enjoyed the food. Had to ask when our drinks were arriving, as we had run out of water, no effort to top the water up. Then one of the drinks turned up as beer and not wine. Staff very pleasant.

Really lovely place to dine when staying at the Novotel hotel. Small menu with only one vegetarian option but good portion size and very tasty. Was pleased there was milk available on the kid's menu as my boys prefer that over fizzy. Wish I had room for dessert as the options looked delicious.

I went to Caucus on Friday evening with my partner. I ordered the rib eye and she got the King Salmon. The meals were both beautiful but recomend getting some sides which we failed to do.

In Wellington just got the weekend to celebrate my brothers birthday. Food was delicious and well presented. We both had the salmon and tiramisu for dessert. Would definitely recommend!

Enjoyed our lunch but found the lunchtime menu quite limited and somewhat boring. Would need to diversify before we came again. Excellent service from the waitress though.

the atmosphere was distubed by people going down the side of the restaurant to a lift - they need a wall instead of the curtain which everyone seemed to love to swing.

Given we were the only table in the restaurant for much of the night (we were a 6 with only a few of other tables of two), the service was quite slow. Food was delicious and good value, aside from the desert, which was tiny for the hefty price tag! Location is what made us book this restaurant though, and would probably go again despite the above.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the menu is different to what is online so the food we were planning on having was not available. The food that we did order came out presented beautiful but was seriously lacking any taste or enjoyment. I am glad I booked through first table as I would of been very disappointed if I had paid full price for the food I got. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone

The food was delicious and they had nice wine. However, they had forgotten or mixed up our booking so they had to make a makeshift table which was squished up along a wall. The table set up was unsociable as there were 4 of us. They were apologetic about this and said they were sorry about the mistake.

The food was good, but the service was terrible. The waitress was overchallenged and lazy. I got the wrong menu. I told her there's another one online. She brought it. She had no idea which kind of tea available is. I had to ask for a second menu when my friend arrived. She gave him the menu and asked immediately what he wants to have. I had to tell her that he needs some minutes to read it first. I had to refill my water by my self (around 3 times). She could just bring one of these jugs with water. Our plates were empty and still on the table until we left (around 20 minutes). She even asked if we want to have dessert, but didn't take the empty plates. We told her we would like to pay, she never showed up again. We paid at the counter.
