We had an early table voucher which is great value. The food was very good and well presented. I highly recommend the pork belly entree and short rib main. The timing and service however was lacking. We arrived 15 minutes before our booking and our entree took 40 mins. Mains took forever as well. We were told it was a new menu when we arrived so maybe that was the delay, there wasnt a lot of staff in the kitchen and there didnt seem to be any urgency. Our waitress was very pleasant. Would return as the food was very tasty.

Very high quality meal with a good selection of wines. Prices are a bit on the high side but it was well worth it. Service was friendly and efficient. We had a great night and will be back.

The food was very tasty. Just a few maybe feedback to the chefs: 1- we ordered lamb rump and said medium rare, what we were served was well done. 2- The chocolate dessert said had chocolate soil but there wasn’t any- not a big deal but I have had similar dessert in Novotel Nee Plymouth and that was well served and tasted good unlike this one. Tasted like just taken out from freezer. Besides this the staff were very approachable and friendly.

Everyone enjoyed their meals, so much so we had no room in our tummies for dessert. Outstanding young lady served our table with friendly excellence.

I had the pork ribs and the meat was falling off the bone and they were very tasty. In fact the lunch menu is very good.

Jus & vegetables were burnt for the eye fillet - Sirloin was tough and tasted cheap Bowel of Kumara fries were burnt Wait time was 1.15min for mains There was no urgency or priority for waiting customers Food was almost like an upgraded pub grub We left highly disappointed and food is over priced The maori waitress who looked after us was good but 1 waitress dropped a tray of glass at my feet on arrival as she wasn't watching where she was going. 1 star

We shared a selection of starters instead of a getting a main each and were very glad we did. The starter size was perfect for sharing. Some were better than others with the pork belly and the couscous salad being absolute standouts. Staff accommodated our pre-show timing very graciously and expedited dessert so we could enjoy another course before we had to leave.

Sous Vide chicken dish very tasty. Grilled lamb rump was nice, cooked a little more than requested and the bearnaise sauce was a bit bland. Hostess very pleasant.
