I've been dieing for The Challenge ever since I had it 3 trips ago. Last time you'd already sold out and now you're closed ! Guttered.

After seeing all the lovely reviews, we went this evening and looked hrough the windows to see everything covered in dust. We were told that it was one of a couple of places damages in the earthquake, but hopes to reopen in the near future.

We had breakfast here with a big group of friends, the service was great, reasonably priced and the food was yummy. Just your normal menu, eggs benedict, pancakes etc. Have also had the hot stone steaks on other occasions and they are also good, if you like that kind of thing.

Me and a group of mates visited saints for happy hour, free pool, and dinner. The stonegrills were beautiful, and they came out of the kitchen in record time, excellent service quality. I'll definitely be heading back to Saints sometime soon. Highly recommended.

We had a fabulous breakfast. The cinnamon pancakes with banana and bacon were delicious, as was the eggs benedict with sour dough bread, which made a nice change to the traditional english muffin. Portion size was very generous. Staff were very friendly. Coffee was excellent.

My partner and I visited Saints for dinner - we both got stonegrill meals. I was very impressed with the size and quality of the "Prime Fillet" that I got - safe to say it was the most tender and delicious steak I have had! It came with "Glass Eye Creek" sauce which accompanied the meat beautifully. Sides were fries... More

We had a great meal and fun time. The menu was varied and they have daily specials. The staff were friendly and our waiter was very informative and made the evening most enjoyable. Most of all the quality of food was really good and the environment was excellent.
