Darryl is a bit of a wag. He is a very good host and like lots of other NZ host love to make comical remarks about us Aussies. Nothing too bad. A bit of a bunfight over the prawns and mussels which could be organised better. But the main meal was excellent. Recommend it

An excellent combination! As well as the beautiful evening cruise upriver - where the scenery is lovely and there's also the chance to spot a few birds at very close quarters, especially shags roosting - the dinner was superb.
Although not particularly cheap, this is well worth the money. All the staff are friendly, helpful and informative - there is a commentary as you cruise along - and there is a totally relaxed feel to the whole evening. The food, especially the mussels and prawns, were very tasty; it's amazing how they managed to cook such a wonderful meal in the small space and with minimum fuss.
If, like us, you are lucky enough to do this on a warm, sunny evening, the experience will be truly magical.
