Very enjoyable lunch. Had the classic fish & chips and would certainly come here again to try more options on the menu. Cheers

Really great time, very attentive waiter which you don’t often get in NZ. Great meals. If anything, the food came out almost too quickly -it’s nice to make the experience longer sometimes.

I had been for drinks only before at the bar, but not actually sat down to dine. The service and atmosphere was great, as was the food. Highly recommend!

Booked a table here to catch up with friends while I was in town. Great food, good selection of drinks and our waitress was awesome. Will definitely come back here next time I’m in Christchurch.

A really vibrant atmosphere early on a Friday night for a meal. Great service from a great team of people. Not intrusive, but just the right amount of interaction. Had a great view of the kitchen and loved the cohesive way the staff worked in there. Beef Filet, Fish and Chips, and for me, the swordfish. All beautifully presented and delicious. Ginger Toms x 2 all round. Great dinner. Thanks team.

Hi team! Thanks for a lovely evening! Especially to the awesome enthusiastic bar lady (didn't catch her name) who was full of ginformation (see what I did there?!) and helped us discover some delicious new gins. Dinner was also delicious, the Wagyu beef burger was possibly the best burger I've ever had! We'll be back.

I ordered the Steak Frite and didn’t get asked how I wanted it cooked and when it came out it was pretty much still raw, I couldn’t even eat it.

I was charged over $20 for a glass of sav when I asked for the cheapest one, the lamb dish was so pathetically tiny which was not explained (to a very big guy who ordered it) and it was very expensive, and we had to ask 3 times for a beer, and we were missing the bacon we ordered with our fries. Not exactly the dining experience we were after for our first anniversary. The only positive note was the staff were very polite and kind and apologetic.

The food was delicious, loved the meat and fish. We specifically chose the restaurant due to the menu and that the fish is line caught. Dessert was pretty good too. Always love the massive selection of gins!
