We bought a bottle of wine from them, then they tried to charge $10/glass for using their glasses. At least they didn't charge us for using cutlery and dishes I suppose. Food very average and expensive - won't be back

Walked into a very shabby restaurant, where the staff were pleasant but their dress matched the surroundings. The service was extremely slow and the meal terrible. I asked for veggies with my steak instead of fries and was given over boiled veggies from the buffet. The salad was iceberg with grated carrot and no dressing. My husband's steak was missing the bacon and was tough. If it was a $22 pub meal you might except it, but at approx $35+, way too over priced. We eat out regularly and this would be the worst meal we have had in Invercargill for a long time- avoid!!!! Only nice touch was the free chocolate rose for Valentines Day.

Quite disappointed in this place the potatoes were still hard and the carrots were frozen baby carrots the peas had been boiled to an inch of their lives and the ham and lamb was overlooked. Won't be rushing back that's for sure. Though the staff a bit scruffy for front of house

Me and my partner arrived here for a meal without a booking which was no problem.
I had the salmon and it was yummy! Other person had a steak which was cooked well.
Service was great, can tell the staff are eager to make sure you comfortable and having a good time.

Staff were nice, but food was average. A little expensive. Enjoyed looking out above the houses. They could work on presentation in the restaurant and professionalism.
