Great service from cheerful wait staff

The food was soooo tasty. Presented like a Masterchef meal and like Masterchef a little on the small size.
Lovely position by the rivers away from the town centre.

Starting with the wonderful location, perched on the banks of the Turanganui and Waimata rivers; one can be seated and watch the westerly sun set over the water as you enjoy fine dining. Stephan, the Head chef has created a stunning menu that showcases the best of the regions meat, fish and produce into a fusion that reflects both his New zealand home and French roots. No diner will be disappointed with the wine selection either as the Marina boasts some exquisite Vintages, and local wines.
If you are after a romantic and special meal then you can't go wrong with The Marina Restaurant.
Great service and style.
