Sat outside on their upgraded deck. Fantastic attentive service. A bottle of scrumptious Clearview Reserve Chardonnay. I had the haloumi salad, my wife the (king )fish of the day. Both excellent. The mint salad with pomegranates with my generous amount of Haloumi just won. Excellent.

The setting really makes this place, with a lovely view over the wharf and out to sea. Nothing to complain about food-wise either.

Celebrated New Year (2018) at Jellyfish. We had the set 5 course menu. It offered variety, was extremely well cooked and the service was fantastic. Also celebrated my 60th and without warning staff helped celebrate the day. Much appreciated.

Had two starters (salmon and haloumi cheese salad) plus some Pinot Gris, and all was amazing! Great setting and super nice server, Ian, who steered me in the right direction with each of my choices. Highly recommend!

Great tastie food, family of 6 plus baby had a really nice lunch. Different modern menu. Recently renovated spacious dinning room with view down Mapua inlet. Situated on the jetty an easy walk from car parking. Lots of trendy shops near by.
