Great place to sit after a sunny day, overlooking the marina, with a glass of local Riesling. The oysters are always great, and the drinks are reasonably priced.

We had a wonderful lunch here, sitting on the deck, in the sun. They had a great lunch deal, 2 dozen oysters and a bottle of wine for $68. Great value and great tasting food and wine.

My wife and I go here at least once a month.It can be hard to get a table at times but the wait is worth it.Its a beautiful atmosphere on a nice warm day sitting outside admiring the boats and dreaming.

We started outside with plastic sides down but then had a smoker at table next to us so moved inside (not used to that in NZ) I recommend... More

We spent a couple of hours here, warm as toast in the outdoor undercover area. The views to the marina were fantastic & the passing parade of people interesting. The food was great, the oysters in particular were delicious - we had the Kilpatrick & the mornay. The prawns & spring rolls were tasty & the salt & pepper calamari... More

We visit the "OB" regularly, so recently made it the place for a casual get-together for a friend's birthday - a great setting overlooking the Marina, with lots of atmosphere. There are three seating areas: indoors, plus two separate outdoor options (both of which are well heated and have those clear blinds to enclose against the weather), This place seems... More
