You cannot beat the position of this restaurant – the food was excellent but our waiter certainly let down the team!!
Friend LE (Loves Everything): FLE enjoyed all the food – good wine started our day. Food was excellent quality – the prawns with macadamias won the day – and a Groupon voucher made sure we could afford the meal (although the host gave us the specials menu without mentioning that it was not available when using the voucher). 7/10
Me FOF (Finder of Food): Gorgeous winter spot – sitting in the sun, looking out at the ocean and the coastline enjoying a glass of NZ wine – cant go wrong – right? Wrong – the food was all luke warm. We were told it was to enhance the flavours – um newsflash it didn’t! They did offer to remake the chips but by then we couldn’t be bothered. Not acceptable at a restaurant of this calibre where you are paying a premium. Crab pasta was delicious even luke warm and the calamari was very tender, Chips with feta and oregano would have been divine had they been hot! 6/10
Value: Not cheap!!! Special occasions only and make sure you ask for hot food.
Service: Our server was so up himself it was ridiculous – it wasn’t overly busy but took a long time to get our order in. He deigned to bring us water after having to ask – obviously did not like the fact we had a voucher and we were left feeling he did us a huge favour. Not impressed. The host was lovely while not informative.
Verdict: Gorgeous restaurant with fantastic views and if a bit cold) food. Won’t be hurrying back
