The food is wonderful,delicious and presented perfectly. A warm friendly atmosphere and wonderful setting makes for a very evening- and out of the windows,the unique and inspiring presence of Mt Taranaki looks down upon you -a really special experience.

Fantastic service - wonderfully friendly people. The quality of food is amazing, and the serving sizes are generous. Nestled up the mountain amongst the native forest, the views and ambiance are second to none.
