The Gnocchi, mushrooms and stuffed chicken was amazing! So delicious.
The food all came out at different times though

Really enjoyed our night out. The Service and food was great. My steak was cooked to perfection. The only reason I gave 4 starts and not 5 is because husband had slightly thinner steak than me and he thought it wasn't rare enough. We both enjoyed the food and starter, main and desert.

A perfectly cooked lamb shank with fresh spring vegetables, enjoyed with a view of The Remarkables = perfect. We also had the mussels and calamari for entrees, and my husband had a pizza. Super impressed with all the food. The drinks menu is great - wines for all tastes and budgets, and a good range of beers and ciders too. We'd come back.

Awesome food we had the fish and chips and lamb pizza. The beer batter on the fish was light and crispy and the pizza had a nice firm thin crust with tasty toppings.

Awesome to see The Shelter as a popular after work place for drinks and dinner by all. I booked with two friends for our pre-Xmas catch-up, and walked in to a great atmosphere and was immediately greeted by the friendly staff at the bar. We had 3 courses and each was a delicious as the next. I would recommend the risotto and also the chicken salad bowl - yum. After 4 hrs of dinners and drinks we all left very satisfied with a feeling of being well looked after by The Shelter Team. Thanks guys, we will be back again :)

This was our second dining experience here and we enjoyed it again. The food comes out quickly, and the meals are good sized and delicious. We were dining with our daughter and with children it is nice to have the food come out early for them, and the kids menu was good value with variety. As we are locals and will be returning again it might be nice to have a specials menu with some new menu options every now and again.

We had a good dining experience. We had a lovely seat and the food came out super fast. The only thing is when I went to pay I asked the lady did you put it through on first table and she said yeah. I got my receipt and had a look and it had not been applied.. but I just went and asked another waitress and it was quickly sorted out.. will dine here again!! Thanks

Great experience! We had the Chicken Ballantine with mushroom gnocchi which was incredible (head chef is French) and the Beer Battered Southland Blue Cod which was very good. The Cod is a little bland for my taste but the batter was lovely and thick and crunchy.
We also had the squid rings which were a little salty but really light.
Gav had their local beer which he found a little bland.
Overall really nice experience and the pizzas looked amazing!

The renovations are fantastic! The place looks great, nice atmosphere, good menu, lots of beers on tap. They had items on menu that were gluten free or vegetarian. Dinner mains ranged from burgers, fish and chips, steak, lamb, gnocchi, chicken salad bowl, or pizzas. Don't forget to save room for dessert!

Great at 1st table price (saved $20 overall) but meal portions not huge. Probably best to have an apertiser and dessert if bigger eater. I had lamb shank and hubby had blue cod and chips. Food was delicious. At 5.30 service was fast. Food served on hot plates. Not sure about the enamel mugs for water on table. Prefer glass for dinner. Wines reasonably priced. Didn’t like tvs in dining area showin football on 2 TV’s. Distracting. In the bar area yes, but not for dinner time. Missed the old booths as less privacy.

Had a great dinner and service was good! The lamb could have been even more slow cooked to fall off the bone by itself but it was still delicious. The jus was incredible. My friend had the chicken and mushrooms it was delicious! View is awesome to watch the sunset :)
