We enjoyed a lunchtime meal here last Friday. My wife and I shared a large pizza/fries and our friends enjoyed their salad and soup. A very central eatery that didn't disappoint. The service was very good, food didn't take long, the beer was nice and I'd happily go back again.

Have been around 10 times now, that probably is a good place to start. The service is always good, the food always good, good range and well priced. This place should be full every single night. Well worth trying . We will be back again and again.

Came here for dinner on a Wednesday night was very quiet only a few other tables. Waiter was really lovely and helpful, super great service. The food was really average, not much flavour to things along with stale bread that tasted strange. Asian lady who seemed to be a manager/owner had no idea about customer service and didn't seem to... More

Thank you for your comments, we are pleased that you enjoyed our service. Regardless, we are sorry to hear your expectations for the food may not have been met this time. The table sitting near yours had ordered almost identical meals and were quite pleased with their food, and even ordered more! Manager or waiter, chef or kitchen-hand, we at... More

Caters well for large groups particularly families. Pizzas have an extra twist to them. However not cheap.

Thought about leaving shortly after arriving but were too embarrassed to. Should have. Really average. Garlic bread tasted really odd. My kids who love anything bread, butter or garlic did not like it. I think they used an odd oil on it.

Hi there, Firstly thank you for your feedback, we are very receptive to all input that we can use so as to make our restaurant even better. I have never heard any negative feedback on the garlic bread until now, so it is curious as to what it specifically was that your children took issue with. My hunch is, that... More

Thought I would go and eat some small plates at this restaurant as it looked okay from outside. Had chicken wings which were okay. Also ordered calamari rinds which were just chewy and battered with some awful covering. That was still not as bad as the beef sliders which were 3 small pieces of beef on a piece of lettuce,...

Exactly what we needed great pizza and great service. Have been here 3 times and every time the people are friendly and the place shines. We had a selection of tapas between 5 and also some spicy buffalo wings which were the real deal - cooked tender with homemade minty yogurt style sauce. Had a perfectly grilled lamb burger for...

We were very, very disappointed with this restaurant. It is in the Gold (i.e. fine dining) section of the Wellington Entertainment Book, and has been for at least the last couple of years. However, the food is the standard of a Pizza Hut. The kitchen, which is open for all to see in the restaurant, has no stove (just a... More
