Amazing

Delicious food, was really really packed (because the food is great) and yet we waited no longer than 15-20 mins for each dish whilst enjoying cold beverages.

Great food in an unexpected location

Walking up Rotorua's short food mile, you would not expect such excellent fare at this venue. On a Friday night with a live band playing for the revellers happily swilling outside, you will be surprised by the selection on the menu, fancy presentation of the meals and their great taste. We enjoyed three different starters, mains and dessert, and all were among the best we had for a while anywhere in NZ. As long as you don't expect formality or a romantic setting for a first date, you won't leave disappointed - or still hungry.

BEWARE, this place is not as it seems!!

This place is portrayed as a fine dining restaurant but it's not, it's a rip off! There are no nice white table cloths and the atmosphere is more sports bar. There was a table of guys next to us on a big table who may as well have come straight in from a hunting trip. The adjoining and open area next to this one is like a TAB, rough and ready. As for the food... Starters were less than average. My partner had the duck as a main which was fatty with under cooked skin. It came with a salad (ranch-slaw) that was pretty much the same as something you'd buy from countdown, pre-made, and had an awful vinegar dressing which made it inedible. My steak was well cooked but the reduction was bitter, salty and generally vile, and the dish was sprinkled with raw half cashews and cherry tomatoes, which didn't go at all, and I left. We didn’t bother staying for dessert despite having paid for a 3 course meal. There are plenty of places in that street who pride themselves, save your money for one of them! This was $80+ wasted.
