The look from the street is that it will be a great place to dine. The staff are pleasent effort. They are young overseas workers making their way around NZ and getting a job where the want to explore. We ordered a couple of glasses of wine and the seafood plater. The wine was awesome as per most Kiwi wines.... More

The menu is small but caters for everyone. We weren't all that hungry and it was rather late - so just ordered two entrees. We were last to leave - the staff were friendly and didn't mind that we stayed on. Sitting on the deck was beautiful overlooking the bay. Lovely place.

We only had a drink at Upper Deck, however the service was good and the views from the balcony were spectacular. It's the perfect place to unwind at the end of a long day exploring.

A nice view of the water and gets some of the breeze but the food is so basic that it was laughable. I had the bagel with avocado and tomato... it came with a few bits of avocado although they are everywhere and really cheap over here. And three small slices of tomato. It is not hard or expensive to... More

This restaurant was always a MUST on our visits to Paihia but, sadly no longer. The service was very very slow. The restaurant was packed but, I only saw 3 dishes come out in the 30 mins or so we were there and two meals were sent back! We decided to only have coffee, which took over 30 mins and... More

Our family of 5 stopped in for lunch and ate outside on the 2nd story deck. The lamb salad was fantastic with a generous amount of lamb. One daughter had a cheese and tomato sandwich. I had a bite and loved it. Everyone else had a bagel - nothing too special, but it's hard to make a bagel special.

Great atmosphere, sitting on their balcony with views over Paihia. Food was tasty. I really liked cannelloni and my husband enjoyed prawns.

Handy location with a outdoor view. Menu is ok have a few breakfast choices but just the usuals really. Cabinet food could do with some more options for people that don't want bread or sweets. Coffee was ok and service was polite and friendly. Toilet is a hike down a long hall.
