This former disused service station has been cleverly transformed into a rather incongruous 'art gallery' and restaurant. Its trendy aspirations are somewhat at odds with the tumble down, summer beach feel of the rest of the town, but good luck to the owners for giving it a go. They offer a range of 'starter' size (meaning modest) plates that can be had as light meals, or combined if you feel like a more substantial feed. You order at the bar, and they bring the meals out to the table, so this is more 'pub grub' style than restaurant, but this is Waipu.

The food was tasty and filling, but not terrific. The wines were pricey for the quality. You can eat al fresco on the small terrace out the front, and watch the locals stroll up and down on the main street. We had a chat to the owner, who told us that they only open for the summer season. If you want somewhere a little more stylish than the local Chinese and pizza places, then this is a reasonable option.

I have had lunch here a couple of times now, and have been pleased with the food and the service each time. Am planning to dine there again.
