I love this place. Only open weekdays for breakfast and lunch, it has a sharp snappy menu, a superb short wine list, two excellent operator/owners Ben Blair and Sven Nielsen, and a talented chef, Rob Richardson (who trained with Martin Bosley, no less.)
A casual but worthy atmosphere, and the menu is printed so I can read it without glasses...now that's a considerate touch. Proper bistro cooking, that's light enough to go back to work after a couple of courses. The best Caesar salad in town, lovely pasta dishes and oysters fresh from Waiheke that are served properly. (See above)
It sits a level up from Quay St, has a terrace overlooking the waterfont and offers after work drinks and snacks, no doubt for the army of corporate types who work in the glass tower above. Highly recommended.
