    Very poor service when busy and food decidedly average. Cannot argue with the beer selection however.

    Meals were served without cutlery as they ran out of forks! We had to wait over 5 minutes looking at our full plates and considering using our hands. Waffles are made of crepe batter not brioche dough

    This place is amazing! Best Belgium beers in Auckland. Call before going in case is too empty and they close doors early. Take someone special late in the afternoon: you'll get to see Rangitoto. ❤️

    First time so first is ok, atmosphere is great and service is crap. Been watching our waiter linger and yap at other tables, in the meantime we're waiting to be served. Sort it out.

    Steak is all right, but ask for one temperature cooler than you want - I asked for medium rare and it arrived medium. Health and safety is ruining my meat

  • Kev M.

    11.50 for 500ml of Stella brewed in Auckland, just because they dip your glass in a sink of cold water. At least dick Turpin wore a mask

    Kev Mitchell · November 12, 2010
  • Christopher D.

    Lovely venue, lovely view... Waiting over an hour for your food whilst drinking way over priced beer. Complete CRAP!!!!!

    Ken Clive · June 19, 2010
  • Anthony Y.

    In order to book a table you need 10+ people, otherwise - goodluck trying to get a table when it's busy

    Anthony Yan · May 28, 2010

    Sit away from the door. It's windy
