Just recently visited the restaurant for the second time and whilst the service was equally as good as my first review, the food was even better and really was well presented for our smorgasbord. I have to say that the staff are very good and they all gave the impression that they enjoyed their jobs and this was reflected in... More

Decided to give this place a try based on other reviews. However we didn't find the food particularly good at all. The staff and range of beers were good though.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the meal was delicious (particularly the spare ribs which, I must say, were the best I've ever tasted)!!! A very relaxing atmosphere and I look forward to eating there again in the future.

This is the place to go for a decent craft beer on tap in Napier. The first impression of the bar(s) can be a bit confusing. Depending from which... More

The waitress was superb and looked after us well. The quantity was very good and by and large the quality was ok but not exceptional. The dining room was average but a bit basic. The food was delivered to us promptly as we had pre ordered, due to there being over 20 in our party. We surveyed our group afterwards... More

We love theWestshore...."the westy". It's been our local pub for years and having the Bistro there just makes it all the better. Great big pub meals at a reasonable price. The staff are great, efficient and friendly.

We originally tried Westshore Beach Inn for breakfast as we had a grabone deal for 2 Irish Breakfasts. It was so good that we have been back 3 times now and happily paid full price, it was amazing. We went back last week but arrived before they had opened. We were still warmly welcomed and invited to sit down to... More

Lunch for two. I started with French onion soup wow great. I have always thought I should try spare ribs but haven't. Well I can tell you that the spare ribs at the westshore are brilliant. It also came with beautiful chips and a lovely salad and finger bowl to clean up. My partner had the roast pork which was... More
