Nice food

We enjoyed a meal on a friday night here. Locals very welcoming and food was good. Large portions even though I ordered a half size. Nice and local to the hotel we stayed.

Totally delicious food. Massive serving sizes and wicked value for money. This is a serviceman club, so its totally casual, buy drinks at the bar, order food at the food bar, and return your dirty dishes to the bar yourself.. Love it.

The menu had lots of choice and looking at the meals going out great looking food. We ordered a little after a big group... More

Legends is aptly named, they are "legends" the food is top class and there is a good variety. Specials change regularly and the price is very competitive. Staff are friendly and helpful. Legends is at the Paihia Ex-Servicemens Club who make you very welcome.

What an amazing food. We have had a garlic and wine mussel pot as an entree and then Surf and Turf steaks. All very delicious. After those meals we ordered sticky date pudding and we could not make a better choice. It is not possible to leave this place hungry because you can help yourself with salads and vegetables bar....

This is a fantastic place to get good food at a good price. The meals are a big serving and you can help yourself to Salid and veg. It is family friendly. The experience reminded me of the good old days when you could go to the pub get a good feed a drink a friendly person to talk to... More

Legends is actually a part of the Paihia ex services club. Located near the Paihia school with plenty of free parking. This is a typical ex services club, similar to the RSL clubs in Australia, with separate bar and food areas. You get your drinks from the bar and order your grub at the restaurant. So this is not a... More
