Great location, OK fare

This is a really nice corner and the sidewalk/park/beach ambience on the patio is terrific. Service was OK. Price was OK. I had the “Greek lamb burger” and it was fine, if sloppy and messy.

The menu was very busy and the waiter did not know much about the menu. We ordered lamb and fish. The fish was good but was swimming in butter so it ruined the otherwise good fish. I told the waiter he said he would tell the chef. I complained to the manager saying the fish and lamb were good but... More

We stopped by here as we walked back from the ferry, what a good find. The restaurant was very inviting and the staff friendly. We were served quickly and it was no problem to have a starter as a main course. The wedges are to die for. 2nd time we had desserts and the chocolate fondant was very rich, yummy.

location is closed to ferry port ,nice environment. friendly & sincere staff. Our group of three ordered 3 mussel soup and 3 main dishs.Staff recommended that too much for us and too much mussel,so we changed ,otherwise it's too much. Beef also nice,not only seafood.Highly recommended.

We were staying in Devonport on my birthday, which was on a Saturday night. Based on Trip Adviser reviews we decided Manuka would be a lovely place to eat and the day before we called in to ask if we needed to make a reservation as everywhere in Auckland was so busy. The lady was delightful and said she suggested... More

Fast, friendly service is the highlight. Coffee nice though not hot, solid every-day coffee shop fare. No issues though. It is what was expected and didn't disappoint.

Visiting Devonport for a few days & noticed that this restaurant always seemed to be busy so tried it out. Ordered the BLAT --- a BLT with avocado. It was a very generous sized lunch -- built up into a salad format. Delicious! My partner had an omelet which was loaded with goodies. Service was pleasant & attentive. A must... More

Popped in for a late lunch.. Not too sure what to order we settled for the lamb burger n chicken pie not really knowing what to expect. We were very surprised by the quality of the food. It was very tasty n generous portions. The service was great n overall found this to be a very pleasant surprise

My family and I had lunch at this restaurant on Auckland Day. Other restaurants in the vicinity were virtually empty whilst this one was buzzing with life. Extensive variety of food on the menu suitable for every kind of preference. Our group of five chose pizza, shallots, calamari, lamb shank and lamb tenderloins - all beautifully prepared and tasty.
