Wow, if you like pork this is the meal for you. On this occasion the pork was just right which made the meal most enjoyable. Lots of crackling.Add lashings of chunky chips and a heap of coleslaw and you are in business! very enjoyable!

We had tried a couple of other places but they appeared closed (USS Co) or busy and lacked interest in us (Rivers). We were welcomed at Lone Star even though they were busy.

We ate here as not so much seemed to be available on a Sunday evening and the menu looked broad. Staff were excellent, service good and food good. Nothing amazingly exciting but well prepared and served and just as expected from Lone Star. Venue, location and decor good. We'd go back

Always great service . Sat by the windows looking out over the boats. Lovely spot. The meal was big and wholesome. Very tasty and well worth the price. The staff were friendly, chirpy and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

We waited about 50 min to get our food. The food was nice when it came. At this kind of place I did not expect to have to wait this long. We brought our children and luckily they could draw, but they too got impatient.

Not many good restaurants in Gisborne so we ended up here. Got in on a Friday evening without a reservation, which was either nice or lucky. The place was pretty full. Dinner was excellent. Salmon for me, steak for wife. No complaints. Right on the water's edge.
