We are a New Zealand inspired whimsical restaurant set in a craftsman house that dates back to 1905. We are one block off the main drag in Little Italy. Sink your teeth into one of our organic beef or lamb burgers. We also have many salads and dinner entrees to try. Portions are generous, and prices are reasonable.

Fast becoming our"slow" casual downtown/Little Italy restaurant. The food is always great and always a bit funky. The chicken pot pie is not anything you'll recall from your Swanson TV dinner days. The meat pies are exceptional and would leave someone from the UK wondering why THEIR meat pies don't taste as good. The burgers are wonderful, the fish and chips really delightful.

The staff is friendly, attentive without being "helicopter servers" and always ready to accommodate any slight changes.

Nice selection of local beers.

The food & drink selection was excellent along with their amazing waitstaff. We were seated adjacent to the street so regular traffic noise along with 2 fire trucks with lights & sirens blaring. A bit annoying BUT Queenstown’s staff and food was worth it. Our party’s thanks to the fire personnel for their service. As I’m sure they would have preferred to be at Queenstown themselves.

Everything was excellent! The servers were great and the food was delicious. It was perfect the way they set up seating for the covid situation. It made dining cozy and private. It was a great time.

Food was delicious and ambience was charming. Would not order wine from here again. It was served in a tiny pint glass and tasted off. I returned it and the second wine tasted off as well.

The cure is the best!! I got it with chicken and it had amazing flavor (a little bit of a kick) I don’t like spicy and this was not that spicy to me.
