While the food was OK, the service was abysmal. When I walked in, I was promptly greeted and seated by a waitress. She took my order in a reasonable amount of time and that was about it for the service. There were literally one other party in the restaurant. I saw my order ready, seating, and waiting for 10 minutes... More

We were a group of 5 friends checking out options on for lunch. 3 of us were vegetarians and were about to leave since they menu did not have much to offer. But then the chef/owner came by and offered to make things off the menu for us !! The food was excellent and so was the service. We tried... More

We ate here twice during our recent 5 night stay in Paihia and had excellent meals on both occasions. It had a good ambience with an excellent live singer. Service was good and everyone was friendly. The restaurant looks like it may only cater for backpackers but this is not the case. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.

In 2015 an establishment offering food of this low standard should not be in business. The service is equally forgettable..at one point we had to ring from our table to get someone to come to our outside table with another bottle of wine..do you, your tastebuds and wallet a favour and go somewhere else. It could not be worse.

The waitress or host was lovely at first, and I also think she might be a co-owner of the place. However when I ordered an apple juice and vege burger, they both came with hairs attached, with the longer one in the pattie of the burger. When the waitress/host came to ask if all was well, I told her of... More

I walked past this place maybe 10 or 20 times. It reminded me of a cantina/type place in Mexico. I had checked out the menu a few days earlier and thought not too much of it. My son mentioned he had been for dinner there a few days earlier, recommending the chicken with spinach. I dropped in at 6.00.p.m. on... More
