I was really excited to try this restaurant in such a prime location. Unfortunately, it let me down in service and food quality. I booked for 2 adults and a child and had to request a child's menu after being seated for a while. The menu sounded great however did not taste very good. I ordered the garlic loaf which was so oily to the point we didn't eat it. I also had the seafood chowder which did have some large pieces of seafood in it but not a lot else flavour wise. The dessert, however, was well presented and tasted good. Overall I found it overrated and overpriced pub food with a good view. If I were to return for the view though I would take a picnic.

My Mum, Daughter and I had a fabulous time. The $5 kids meal with an adult meal during the holidays was a great incentive to drive up from Timaru for a day out. My only criticism was that the crackers on my child's kids platter were chewy and stale, but overall a great experience and we will be back, thank you

The service was simply outstanding! The meals were divine... albeit small and expensive. It was a great meal to help up celebrate a special occasion for our family!
