I was in Paihia twice for business and ate here once on both occasions. It looks like a typical steak house/bar type restaurant, and has a good vibe inside. Service is also good. I had heard about the ribs here so I was anxious to try it out, and they didn't disappoint! They were falling of the bone and the... More

Busy place and pricey but no doubt about it - the food and service are top notch. Tried the chicken kebabs - delicious! Tried the pork spare ribs with chips - delicious! Go before you get really hungry as it could take a while for your food to arrive.

We discovered this restaurant on our first night in the bay of islands and ended up visiting a futher three times, the food and service was so good we just had to keep coming back. The Burgers are delectable, and the chips sooo good. My partner became addicted to the Texas Wedges with Bacon and Cheese, he just couldn't get... More

We visited on a Sunday evening in the peak of summer. The place was very busy and all outside tables were gone so we sat inside. Service was very prompt - in fact almost too quick, we'd just sat down when they were over to take our order. The food was fairly standard pub food, with the ribs a highlight.... More

Husband and 15 year old son enjoyed the delectable ribs, presented on a board (no plate) with their chips, chicken wings and a knife stabbed in the middle of them...very carnivorous and served appropriately for hungry males. Mother enjoyed the seafood chowder - fresh and creamy and daughters delved into wedges and curly fries, devine garlic breatd, knocked off by... More
