Don't order the large unless you are up to eating a football field! Not as good as other Pizza place in Paihia - but OK.

The pizzas were quite nice, with choose your own bases, sauce, toppings! A novel idea! We were very happy with what we ordered and had enough left over for lunch the next day! Would probably go back again!

Ordered a lasagne which cost $16.80 served with fries. Lasagne was cold in the centre, making me suspect that it was a frozen meal. I complained and they offered to make me another one which was hot on the outside, but warm in the centre. Waitress was not genuinely apologetic and the chef looked more annoyed than anything. Was told... More

Had visited this place some years ago and enjoyed good coffee and cake. It now is a bar which serves coffee and hot fast food. I therefore just had a latte which was quite average and my husband had a beer, nothing special. We saw a couple being served pizzas, which, quite frankly looked like cardboard with pieces of meat...

We enjoyed sitting outside looking across to the Bay. We designed our own pizzas and they were good.

We ordered a standard-size Genesis seafood pizza for $25, and what we got was 8 prawns, about 6 mussels and some cheese. It is the worst value for money we have ever had, and being visiting proud NZers we are ashamed that overseas visitors might be treated the same as we were. Franks Pizza Bar has NOTHING to be proud... More

Great view over the bay. Our first stop each day for good coffee, with friendly staff. We had a pizza on the midweek entertainment night which was really good, however with drinks it was a bit overpriced.

Pizza was great but the organisation needs some work. We ordered two and got a 50% success rate. If they can get your order right then you will throughly enjoy the pizza.
