Lovely little place. Extremely helpful and friendly waitress. Very tasty gourmet food. Lunch special with wine. Variety of tasty pizzas available. Maybe the main dishes could do better quantity wise. Might be a bit small a portion if you are really hungry.

Food we had was good but not enough of it! Overpriced for what we had. 37 dollars for fillet steak which barely weighed 4oz was too much money. Need practice on how to make an Irish coffee. Waitresses were lovely and friendly.

Visited for dinner with friends and we were all extremely pleased with all of our choices, my steak was cooked to perfection. A lovely waitress who couldn’t have been better. The food is Italian/Mediterranean and has the best flavours. Garlic Bread to start was as light as air and awesome, just set the tone for the whole meal, highly recommend this unassuming Restaurant it truly is a hidden gem! Prices are in line with other restaurants and excellent value. Will be visiting again.

Delightful restaurant. Very friendly attentive staff. Great food at good price. Highly recommend flat bread, steak, and tiramsu, but everything looked tasty. Thanks

Having lived on the coast (Hibiscus) for over a decade we've seen restaurants both flourish and fade. This little gem is, I hope, here to stay for some time to come. Despite having been established for a fair while now, we hadn't tried Menopa since it was under new management. It didn't disappoint and I can quite honestly say had the best meal on the coast that we had had in a good couple of years.
The service was superb from the second we crossed the threshold. The staff are engaged, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. That alone contributes a large portion to the overall meal experience - but let's not forget the food.
The menu is Mediterranean centric but beautifully interpreted and transposed to New Zealand produce and seasonality. I had the beef filet Rossini which was excellently prepared in my preferred rare fashion and has to be riding high in the top twenty steaks of my life - seriously. Vegetables were tasty and innovatively flavoured. My wife enjoyed a sublime fettuccine Alfredo - she scored it an easy 8.
The wine list is divers, well considered and well priced, complementing the food very well indeed.
In short we had a lovely meal, excellently cooked, presented and served. We shall definitely be going again and I'd recommend the place in a heartbeat.
