A good choice of meals, well presented with friendly staff. Between three of us we had ribs, steak and a combo. All excellent.

Whilst on holidays with 3 others for dinner. Staff nothing short of fantatic, ribs also great value for money. Highly recommended for anyone on the North Island and in the Bay of Islands area to dine here.
