We went for dinner with our little boy (2yr old). The fact that he was happy made our dinner lovely! We loved the mussels and the lasagna! We will be back when we're in Napier!

3 out of 4 of us were only moderately happy. A local said the fish could not be fresh caught and the chicken chorizo pasta was just lacking subtlety. Just drowned in sauce. I had the honey pork and was very happy. Staff were good but just overworked. Sorry would not go back.

We have tried EVERYTHING ok not everything but just about everything on the menu lol. The breakfast is crazy big and made to perfection, we usually take the big brekkie and struggle to finish it. Lunch for me has always been the clam chowder, NOBODY makes it better than them. Dinner you must try the Beef Bourguignon but be careful... More

Nine of us arrived for brunch on a Sunday, when the restaurant was busier than we expected. The staff weren't fazed, suggesting options for putting tables together inside, or taking the street-side courtyard to ourselves, which is what we decided upon. Water and menus were delivered and after about quarter of an hour, our orders were taken. The menu had... More

We called in for a quick early meal about 5:00 pm before going to the movies. We were told once seated that our meal would be about a 30 minute wait and when we said we had to be at the movies in 50 minutes they took our order quickly and we had our meal in about 15 minutes. We... More

Ok place for quick bar food. Oysters (raw) weren't really up to par - flavorless. Nice waitstaff and right on the beach.

We dined here in Sept 2016. The restaurant was clean and warm on a cold night. The waiting staff were not particularly attentive to our requests. There appeared to be confusion with our drink and food orders. When we did receive the meal after some time, it was pleasant in taste but not remarkable.

Thank Fran1712
