We went for dinner. Had to sit upstairs given it was Friday night, and the bar was full. Food was pretty good. Service average. Prices expensive. No wifi. We won't be back.

Easily the best view from an Orewa restaurant. We all chose the fish and chips which were very good and served quickly ( they dealt well with gluten allergy ) Casual, friendly, surf club atmosphere. Fair selection of wines and beers.
