Evening meal. Went with friends before going to a movie. Very helpful staff. I had a Rissotto with smoked Ricotta. Absolutely wonderful. The meals were very good. Good location if going to Embassy Theatre, The Paramount Cinema or even Te Papa.

Your chips are amazing!! Chicken burger was really delicious, and the waiter was so friendly - he was awesome. Probably the best food I ate while I was in Wellington - thanks :)

Thursday evening dinner, and we thoroughly enjoyed food, wine and service. The only downside to an otherwise very appealing choice of dishes is the absence of salads on the menu (and this includes side salads!).

Was excited to come here and have a meal with a friend, however the staff were blatantly disinterested and it took a very long time for anyone to take our order. Very disappointed in the service especially as they were not busy in the slightest.
