Four *s may be a tad generous, but for the price we each had a decent dinner snack. We went because Tito's is directly opposite our hotel. The menu was varied and the prices looked good. I had a very nice burger, my partner had an enjoyable chicken enchilada. There was a good deal on house beer and wine; we... More

My fiancée and I went to titos on our first night in Paihia. We go back a few times a week now. Best food in town without a doubt! Great value! Open late! Can't rave about this place enough! Seriously! The burritos, the hotrolls and the garlic fries! Can not be beaten!

We ate here for dinner the night we arrived in Paihia. The place was right down the hill from our hotel so it was perfect for us after traveling in from Sydney. The service was quick, the food was good; I ordered enchiladas which had a bit of an appreciated spicy kick and my partner ordered something with pork and... More

Well, that was what my wife said. She had a seafood pasta and thought it was the best she had ever tasted. Everything about this restaurant suited us. It was close to our accommodation, homely yet with a bit of class. Good background music and attentive staff. Prices were very reasonble and portion sizes perfect. The only negative we found... More

I'm a local gal living in Paihia and it is good that Tito's is always open late - it is so convenient for me. I usually order the beef burger with the relish in it, it tastes wonderful and is great value for money - $10 for the burger and some chips on the side. The calamari is also fantastic... More

This restaurant rated quite highly on T.A. but can't understand why. The food was nothing to write home about and the surroundings were average. There was a musician playing who was quite good. The waitress was French and gave very good service. The meals were odd combinations, for example you designed your own pasta. It was very ordinary presentation and... More

Friendly laid-back joint with great food in large portions. Only complaint from our party is that the chairs were a little uncomfortable.

We ate here twice while staying in Paihia because the food was excellent and the prices very reasonable. I can definitely recommend the chimichanga. Delicious!

Just off the main beach road, great place to eat and drink and some evening there's live music too. So well worth checking out the board just outside the bar for live performances. On the night we were there we had a great acoustic guitar player with a variety of 70s and 80s songs and a couple of originals too.... More
