This was a business dinner and I have never been here before. Walking in, it immediately promised a very nice evening. Location, ambience and very friendly staff. With a great menu selection, I chose the scallops, lychee and calamari which delivered in flavour and presentation. Everything was... read more

We were spoilt for choice walking along the harbour foreshore but, with our first choice only offering us a 45 minute wait, we chose the Dockside. And we were not disappointed. As we had a small person in tow we were really looking for fish and chips in relaxed and comfortable surrounds, and this place was just perfect. Our small... More

Walked in and got a table for two without a reservation even though quite busy. Attentive waitresses.recommend whitebait to share to start. Fish and chips (snapper) was excellent tasted really fresh in a light batter. Wine choice extensive and reasonable.

I think it made a difference that we had a reservation. We were seated immediately at the best table in the house. It was upstairs at an open window facing the marina in the harbor. Great views and a cool breeze wafted in. We had been in New Zealand for 5 days and had yet to eat their famous fish... More

Choice no. 3 as they only had a fifteen minute as against a 45 minute wait in other places. In reality we were barely there five minutes before we were seated, still clutching our cocktails. Really lovely, friendly staff and maitre’d. Possibly, so far, the best meal we have had in NZ.

Perfect location overlooking the small marina. Great service. Fantastic food, well presented and cooked. Some unusual combinations that work. Meat and fish. Good choice of wine and beer. Prices are right for that special occasion.

About 30 family and friends gathered here for a recent family occasion and enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere beside sparkling blue water and fishing bats, great drinks service and excellent nibbles handed around by very attentive staff: prawns, raw oysters, tiny sausage rolls, deep-fried chicken nibbles and ditto squid rings. A few more seats would have been nice, but we were... More

This visit was a treat for our friends, and it looked just great. BUT! although we had booked a table, and were early [as requested] we had a really disappointing evening. The service was awful - a pretty girl minced around, but did nothing when asked! The food took over an hour to come; when it did appear, the 3... More

This is a great location on the waterfront with very good service. Good menu although we stuck with the traditional fish and chips which was very good..
