This Restaurant is actually called the Top Deck Restaurant, situated above the Admiral Arms Hotel. Between 3 of us we ordered Wedges, Scallops Mornay and Lamb Shanks. The wedges came with bacon, cheese, sour cream and sweet chilli sauce. This was a nice start to the meal so I was looking forward to my Scallops Mornay. My partner and I... More

Stood at the empty bar waiting to be served, only to have every other local who walked up afterwards served first with barely a glance in our direction. Food plates at other tables looked fairly standard. Ended up walking out and going elsewhere for dinner

We didn't see anyone seated but wanted to enjoy the view on the balcony. The menu looked good at a reasonable price for lunch. Kids special menu too. Service was really good and ditto the food. By the time we left the place had more customers too. Pictured is my seafood basket.

Salmon on mussel rissotto with a glass of Savignon Blanc was a great combination. We arrived half an hour before the kitchen closed and were not rushed.

Came here specifically for dinner as I still remember how AMAZING the ribs were last time I was in town. It was FAR from satisfying this time around. The ribs had hardly any meat on them & were mostly fat. I got a salad instead of the slaw that was actually on the menu. Last time I ate here it... More

We had dinner in terrace. We heard before that second floor restaurant is new. We had two starters Mussels and Scallops. Both dishes tasted very good. Then we had main courses Lamb shank and Surf and Turf. Lamb was delicious and Surf and Turf was also very good. We were very satisfied of our dinner and outstanding view over to... More

This was one of the most disappointing meals on our trip through the North Island. One of our meals appeared over cooked on the outside and very undercooked on the inside. The other meal was ok but nothing remarkable. Bar and waiting staff didn't seem to be that welcoming or engaging.

The staff here were great; helpful and friendly. We went on a very quite night we meant we could have a quiet game of Billiards and enjoy our well cooked meals. This was actually the best meal we had whilst staying in the Coromandel Township. Just be mindful that this is the town 'Local' so might not be so quiet... More

On arrival, the barman wasn't too friendly but warmed up to us in the end. However, the waitressing staff were very friendly and checked up on how our meals went. I ordered the mussels which were fresh and tasty being steamed just the right amount of time in wine. A bowl of water with a handtowel would have been good... More
