We came across this little gem while on a fortnight visit to the loverly Paihia. The food was excellent on each of our 5 visits. The husband & I tried several different dishes that were on offer from the mussels, roast, steak, pork belly as well as the pork chops & all meals were fantastic (believe me I know I'm... More

Not the best looking place and inside it is a club set up. Putting this aside the food is of very good quality with plenty of choice and the prices a fraction of local restaurants. The beer is also cheaper. The staff are very friendly. I cannot find any reason not to highly recommend.

Visited end of October 2014, make sure you go early, we arrived too late the first time we tried at 9pm, the next night we went at 6pm and it was worth it, by 7pm it was packed. On the menu - roast beef, fish meals, steaks, local bangers & mash, belly pork and pasta meals. We recommend the sea... More

We chose Legends as it sounded good value but we were astounded at the quality of the food that we had. I could not have had a better meal in a top city restaurant. Snapper was my choice and it was a work of art. Placed on a garlic prawn bubble and squeak with aubergine garnish, the taste , texture... More

Hey Bridget, Thanks so much for your awesome review! We are so happy you had a nice dinner. We try really hard to provide yummy food for a reasonable price. With the restaurant located in the Paihia Ex-Servicemens Club, there's something happening most nights. Thanks for taking the time to write a review. See you again. :-) Thanks, Sasha More

We ate here every night in Paihia, we so enjoyed the delicious meals - particularly the hot vegetable and cold salad bars. OK it is not fine dining and does not pretend to be. However, the kilo pots of mussels (with lime and coconut cream, garlic and wine, or fresh tomato sauces), the fish of the day, roasts of the... More

Have to order and collect food at the bar and then go downstairs to get your drinks - my steak was very tough but the others were OK

The food was fine, pretty basic and there was plenty of it. You choose your main course then add from a wide selection of vegetables and salads. We thought it was quite expensive. It is very popular, and it quickly filled up - probasably mostly locals, we thought.

There are vey few good restaurants in Paihia and whilst I would not rate Legends as a top restaurant it is extremely good value for money. The menu offers a wide range of items at a good price and drinks are very inexpensive.
