My dad and I went in for dinner to take advantage of a steak dinner special. The atmosphere is really welcoming, and currently all decorated in the Christmas spirit.

Loved the lovely range of food offered here. The seafood chowder was spectacular. Scotch fillet with the mushroom and bacon sauce was just the best. Recommend highly to try out this gem of Orewa.

Very friendly staff (esp Preet). Nice layout for a restaurant with a distinct nautical theme. Menu - typical NZ selection....a bit of everything. Food - okay. Price - average.

pulled in, so too speak. Enjoyed some drinks and nibbles. Great to see large screen for live sports coverage too. Enjoyed the ambiance so returned later in the evening with a small group and all enjoyed our meals.

Visited a couple of times. Food was fairly good , hot , fresh and on the whole pretty good. Only crictism is that the pizza base had caraway seeds in it ...first time for everything I suppose. Butter chicken was good and so were the fish and chips. Nice atmosphere, good service and friendly staff.

Thanks for your feedback. Just for the information we do not use caraway seeds in any of our food product and only use rosemary and thyme to add flavors to pizza base. Once again thanks for dining at Ship and hope to see you again. More
