Small portions of two meals, average food and beer. Maybe 10 dollars but won't be returning, best spend an extra few dollars and be satisfied somewhere else

We found this restaurant/bar by chance 3 years ago and every time we go to new zealand we always visit. The staff and chef will always do anything you ask. And it's so cheap and freshly cooked !!

Drinks slightly pricey but the Calamari and prawns for 10 NZD is a lovely option and tastes fantastic

I loved the veggie burger! It came with beet root, lettuce, tomato, onion, and some kind of sauce. Topped with a soft bun! The fries were excellent too! Cooked well with a perfect amount of salt! The host was helpful and was kind to ask about my trip. Would definitely go back.

What a great little bar - reminds me very much of a favourite bar of mine overlooking a beach in Ibiza, great cheap food $10 a plate, cold beers and a super chilled vibe. Free pool table and live music on a Monday. Perfect!

Sweet ladies who served us, great hospitality and customer service, awesome burgers and enchiladas for only $10.00 food is definitely underated for the quality you get. We will definitely be returning as we love the Moroccan feel free pool table use and homely feel to the restaurant and hey who doesn't love cheap food for great quality.
