All about the visit was soooo good. i think it was a stroke of genius to see the potential of the site, with its fabulous view of Taranaki. And a immense act of courage to believe that you could make a viable business from a restaurant so far from town. But it seems you have and we are all the richer for it. Mind you, if the food, wine, service and ambience weren't all top class it wouldn't be a goer. Well done. You will see us again for sure.

We absolutely loved it, everything was so nice the atmosphere, the meal, service, could not fault it. The only thing that I would be asking is if the menu would change now & again or adding other varieties to the menu in the future. But, as I said, was an awesome evening, so thank you so much to all of the staff for a great night.

I used your card to get contact details but the cell phone number was Printed incorrectly last number was wrong. When ringing your cell phone number there was huge amount of static, however using the on line booking system was very easy to book. We live locally and I know cell phone coverage can be extremely annoying . We had a lovely evening and we wish you every success!

We were a table of 3 who enjoyed the food very much but the service was disappointing.We had to remind waitresses that we hadnt ordered drinks 35mins after arriving.Each course was the same...no one took our orders even though there were plenty of staff standing around and neigh bouring tables were served.Very annoying .However the food was beautiful and the ambience was great.

Hiya, craft beer on tap would make a difference for me. Food was good but you need a point of difference to keep people driving out here. Maybe a smoke House type of thing, maybe all locally sourced, seasonal cuisine, maybe some offal menu options - you know, a nose to tail eating kind of vibe - that sort of thing. Just some thoughts. Cheers, Emma

Great location & views. We were warmly welcomed and seated. Restaurant was busy and had a long wait for food which was understandable. Food good when it came however no-one came back to ask if our meals were ok. I had ordered stacked pancakes that were presented without the Mascapone which let the meal down. Husband also ordered a second beer which never came. Disappointing, as I think we paid for second beer but don't know as weren't given breakdown of costs.
