We arrived around 11am of a busy Saturday on a long weekend. Grabbed a table outside and orders were taken fairly promptly. Unfortunately that is pretty much where the service ended. A small group of four we each ordered a hot drink and cake. All the cakes were brought out... Then 2 hot drinks for our table and hot drink... More

Although the cocktail selection is rather limited they are very delicious and I can highly recommend them. As for the food you can't go wrong. Had the surf 'n' turf and it went down really well:)

Very friendly and efficient staff. Food is always excellent quality, even on a public holiday we went for lunch and the food was surprisingly quick and the salad was faultless. I have a very restricted diet and they always go the extra mile to be flexible with their menu. Mike, the manager, has an excellent sense of humour but always... More

Open menu. Went for breakfast 9am. Could order anything off the extensive menu. My cousin ordered ceviche. This is the best ceviche we have ever tasted. Simply delicious. Bacon and Egg Brioche also deliciously good. The menu is vast and made choices so difficult. The location is perfect with a running river out the front. Definite must to visit Matakana... More

Very good food, welcoming staff, great atmosphere. A good place to go before or after visiting one of Matakana's boutique cinemas. I will be back!

I absolutely loved the pork I had for dinner. We dined with friends who enjoyed the chicken salad- served in a classy parmesan basket. The men had the ribs and both were drooling over them. Somehow we made room for dessert and between us shared the creme brulee, sticky date pudding and cheesecake. The wine we had was a superb... More

We called here on spec the other evening. We were shown to a table straight away and our waiter was very friendly, helpful and attentive. We just ordered mains which were delicious. The lamb rack was really good value for money. Would definitely recommend and will visit again with family.

We had lunch here today and sat outside by the river. Great atmosphere and gorgeous weather! Prices are reasonable, the only thing that let the place down was that there was a delay in some of our meals coming out when others had been served. We feel it is alway good to present the food to the whole group, so... More

We had a lovely brunch here. We sat outside over looking the stream. It was really busy and we were a table of 10 so we did have to wait a little while to order. We were impressed that all our meals came out at the same time. The food was really delicious. We will defiantly go back again.

Thank kiwiflyer10
