Things started badly as the waitress spoke quietly and was hard to understand and some items missing on the menu but we persevered and finally food arrived after coffee long gone cold as were we. The dining area is freezing on a cold day and talk is near impossible when the supermarket is busy. Meal was good as was the... More

Waitress was in no hurry to serve, then said our choice was not available and we should have been told - no apology. Took the shine off a nice lunch. Will be a while before I go back

Ive lived 15 years, off and on, near Rangiora. But I have never eaten out much, even though that's been my lifestyle for many years in Europe. Why? Because there were so very few places to go, and the few good old ones have now changed hands or simply disappeared. But the earthquakes seem to have shaken the little town... More

How good is this place. The pizzas are the best we've found in NZ. The ambience is great and the staff absolutely fantastic. So good, we keep coming back

We were so exciting to try this restaurant as the rating of it is so high. However, we were very very disappointed. The food there was ok, but you can definitely have something much better for that price. The staffs were very rude! That was the worst customer service I've ever had. Not only one staff has that bad attitude,... More

Not recommend any people to this one as they are rude, impatient and their food are terrible. The food doesn't worth the price.

Being both a cafe and specialty food shop made for an interesting and enjoyable morning visit. Loved the great variety of Mediterranean food to tempt and satisfy those who enjoy cooking and/or eating. The area is spacious and bright and all the staff are helpful and friendly. We enjoyed some very good coffee and biscuits in the sunny atrium setting.... More

Love everything about this place. Always fabulous food. The pizza are just like I have had in Italy. The salads are gorgeous, especially the gorgonzola and peach. House wine very good and reasonably priced. Lovely outside area, my little dog loved it.

Went for an early lunch and just got a table for 2 due to reservations. Managed to sit outside, which is a wonderful area on a sunny day. The food was very good. I had the Turkish Pide which is lamb kofte between two pita style breads with salad, humus and a lovely sweet spiced onion topping. Friend had the... More
