What they say

Great place for dog owners and food lovers! 🐶

Great place for people who love food and dogs. Yummy flavours, affordable prices and great service. We’ll surely come back 😊

Great Service, food and atmosphere.

Great food. Exceptional service which catered to my multiple food allergies. Warm atmosphere. I would highly recommend No 4!More

Fantastic meal

Best meal we had in the two weeks we've been in New Zealand. Bella was an absolute delight to interact with

Great birthday celebration

Excellent evening for two gemini friends celebrating our birthdays. Risotto absolutely delicious - I asked for my Risotto to be spicy and some chorizo to be added - no problem. Very pleasant service staff and prompt with drinks. Most enjoyable evening.

Book ahead and enjoy

Gluten free battered fish and chips! Like a miracle. So pleased to find something other than bland steak on a menu gluten free! All our meals were delicious. I had the prawn skewers and my husband had the steak while our GF daughter had the fish and chips. Absolutely 10:10

Very relaxing, excellent meals

Very tidy setting but what makes it so good was the service. We had a back room and our own waitresses and they were both excellent, extremely polite and efficient. The meals were wonderful. We recommend the pork belly, risottos and the lamb. Drinks although

Always a great spot to lunch.

There is nothing to fault at No 4. Food, ambiance, service, all 5/5. We had the dumplings, green vege, and a salad. All freshly made and delicious.
