An extensive menu offers sandwiches, burgers, salads, appetisers and full main courses. Start light with pan-seared Nelson Bay scallops served with cauliflower puree and Kai bacon in chilli and black pepper oil, or salmon trout ravioli in dill cream sauce. Main courses are generously proportioned with New Zealand meat or seafood such as prime beef, ribs, venison, spring lamb, wild prawn, squid, mussels and fish. At least eight species of fish are available for the signature fish and chips and these can be cooked in various ways. NZ snapper in batter is a generous serving of tender fish fillets in a crispy coating. If you still have room for dessert, pavlova with kiwi fruit, passion fruit sauce and ice cream should do the job, or try the delicious Jack Daniel’s chocolate mud cake, which is slightly lighter.
An extensive drinks list includes New Zealand beer and cider, cocktails and plenty of New Zealand red and white wines at reasonable prices.
