Went out for a meal and it was later than we realised. Stoped at Keystone and although they were not doing 'meals'the bar snacks were still avaliable. We had a barsnack and a drink each and were very happy with the food and the service.

Was very busy as rugby game on (got to see Graham Henry) decided to stay for meal. Entrees came or fairly quick but mains were delayed behind a large table but food was fantastic so would still recommend. Was very loud although this was a Friday night too.

Visited tonight with 3 other family members. All starters, mains and desserts beautiful. Staff very nice and friendly also. 3 great eating area options - intimate restaurant/bar area with tvs/outside the front. Good variety to suit all types of occasions. Will definitely go back.
