Our Food Story 

As your hosts, both Dee & Sean have extensive food & beverage hospitality experience
Dee managed well-known Auckland Waterfront Restaurant Mikano for nearly 10 years, with over 20 years experience in the Auckland hospitality scene, while Sean was a Cocktail Bar Owner in Nelson for more than 12 years
Our aim is to serve as much fresh local produce as we can source for our menu to make your experience with us original & authentic. We handmake all the sauces and accompaniments to ensure we are serving only the best! Our house specialty is the local caught Flounder pan-seared whole and served atop a bed of preserved lemon risotto and we love to pair this dish with a fabulous glass of Chardonnay and a generous side of miso dressed broccoli. It will leave your taste buds zinging and your tummy smiling!
