We ate here twice during our 2 week visit. Good menu vegetarian options are great which is a big plus. Service on getting meals out at the same time could be worked on as our garlic bread arrived after we had finished our meals.
Steak was excellent so hubby says.

We popped into The New Place for an iced coffee while shopping in town. Had a stunning view of the mountains behind the cafe! We had a ice cream based iced coffee which was amazing. However it did say $8.50 on the menu, but they charged us $9.50. We did not argue as we were in a rush to get home and $1 didn't seem worth fussing over at that stage.

Great facilities and vibe at the restaurant. Nice spacious and clean toilets and quick service!

Thank you for your lovely review, so glad you found the atmosphere, views, and facilities beautiful and clean.

We appreciate you pointing out the iced coffee price which we have now corrected in our point of sale system, as it was a backoffice computer input error.

Look forward to seeing you again sometime

Ika Mata island fish and coconut
Salad and fish and chips were our orders. I also had a fruit smoothie, which hit the spot. The Ika Mata was unique but delicious.

Ate here on two occasions. Had the mixed tempura fish both times, very good, nicely cooked and tasty. Service with a smile and was efficient. Don't be fooled by its quite simple looks it's good, anywhere that has an open kitchen has to be confident of its food, this place was.

Kia Orana Stephen,
Really appreciate your positive feedback on our casual dining and the combination tempura dish.
Will relay to the smiling and efficient front of house and the chefs in the open kitchen, who love to hear feedback like this!
