Came here for drinks and dinner on a Thursday, what an incredible menu! The bartender Dave was an absolute legend, mixing up a smorgasbord of delicious cocktails and all around witty banter. This man should get a pay rise!
Highly recommend!

This is a local of mine and love the garden bar and food. Great place to go on a nice sunny day. They really really need to work on the wine list however.

Not really any good quality glasses of rose or Sav by the glass. A nice dry style rose or a few different options of Marlborough sav would be fantastic.

This often stops us going there for just a casual drink.

A great spot. Food great but unfortunately the staff don’t seem to be up to standard, bar staff mainly as the restaurant staff were good. Kept waiting on a number of occasions when i went to the bar for a drink while staff behind the bar chatted between themselves. Then forgot to bring the drinks out. Otherwise is ok but plenty of options in takapuna so you do have a choice.

You can sit at a table in the restaurant, but I feel this place is more suited to a drink and a small plate. Good choice of beers and wines. Overall nice place. But nothing stands out.
