An International Summer

The warm summer weather so far has been great for visitors and we have noted there being quite a good sprinkling from all corners of the globe. It is a great mix for locals and international visitors alike as it lends itself to great ambience at the restaurant.

Social Wine Club

Social Wine Club

Our first Social wine club was a great success with Craig of Lamont Wines from Wanaka. They featured several great wines especially the 05 Pinot Noir and the Riesling. The wine matches to the meals all worked very well.

For the next wine club night I have lined up Cypress Manifesto Wines of Auckland. Cypress is a Californian vineyard and we look forward to the tasting night with interest.

Clubs or Groups?

If you know any clubs that are interested in visiting Waihi and the surrounding areas we are happy to host them for lunch, morning/afternoon teas or dinner – please call us at the restaurant to discuss your requirements.

Daily Specials

Check with your waiter/waitress in the restaurant for the daily specials available.

Ready Cooked Meals

A range of our ready cooked take out meals is available for sale at the restaurant – great for a night when you are short on time – just heat and enjoy. We have curries, veal strips, lasagna, German meat loaf and more.
