We made a last minute booking on a Friday and were VERY pleased. The chowder is spectacular. The mussels are very good. The steaks are excellent. We can't comment on dessert as the three of us were stuffed and had no space!

We had squid and the salmon entrees followed by salmon risotto and the steak & mushroom with craft beer and cocktails. Food was cooked perfectly and was such big servings couldn’t finish. Great menu selection and lovely warm and cosy on a wet Invercargill nights.

Enjoyed the nice meals tonight. We only needed a small meal and soup, garlic prawns and dessert fitted the bill. Our server was very friendly and she brought out the food in a timely fashion. I would recommend.
