Fodor's Review

This day/night bar and café is in a lovely old house on the main street and has a sunny courtyard, impressive handmade furniture, plenty of indoor seating, and roaring fires (indoor and out) for cozy nights. The menu consistently provides NZ faves like the sticky pork spare ribs, 400g (14-ounce) sirloin steaks and sea-run king salmon. Their daily specials and vegetarian selections provide plenty of other options. The restaurant roasts and serves its own fair trade, organic

Tuatara Coffee. There's live music several nights a week including an open mic night every Thursday.
