If your looking for a sea food meal - this is the place to go. Fresh, flavoursome, vibrant food and the deserts are huge.

As their name implies, they have the best seafood. We have always made it a point to eat there on our trips to the Bay of Islands over the last 11 years . This time we went there 3 times because there was such a variety on the menu that we did not want to miss.

A friend and I were staying in Paihia last week.. He went out in the afternoon for a walk and knowing my love of seafood found the aptly named 'Only Seafood' as potential dinner option.

The service we received from the young english girl with red hair was outstanding, she should be recognised by her employers for her efforts, especially as she was the only one that I saw that was on the floor working, a business is only as good as its employee's and unfortunately sometimes they are the one's who are overlooked!!

The food was good enough -- nothing that really stood out. The service was slow. We asked if they were short staffed but were told that it was actually rather quiet at that time. I'd hate to be there when it's busy.

We had wonderful seafood dinner - oysters, tuna, seafood parcels, followed by pavlova and coffee - served with the friendliest service that made this a lovely experience. The best meal by far we have had since arriving in New Zealand

Partner and I had a wonderful experience here! The tuna melted in your mouth, the wine was local and a great suggestion from our waitress. Who might I add, was new but very helpful. She searched for an answer to an obscure question we had. Dessert.....lovely. We have listed this restaurant as our favorite, that's how good it is!!

Good food and great surroundings . Fantastic view out over the bay. PS. NZ need to change their laws so Restaurants can provide locally sourced seafood as well.
