Although pricy, the food was exquisite, and the service was very welcoming. Appreciated the veges and salad for the table being included in the price.

The couple that run this restaurant are clearly passionate about food and about bringing their gourmet creations to others (thankfully for us!). The service is welcoming and efficient and the food (and timing of it) was flawless. And this isn't the first time I've come here, (but is my first review of them) but I keep coming back because I'm... More

following the recommendation of our local friends we went to the arguably best restaurant in Whangarei with high expectations. On the upper floor of the Yacht Club, the ambiance is pleasantly intimate and informal - only (9?) tables - with a wonderful wide West-South-East water view. Welcome by the waiter was attentive. I opted for the Wild Fjordland Game dish... More

Go here. Go out of your way to go here. Fly to go here. Move to Whangarei Heads permanently so it is close.

We have been to TopSail on a few occasions now and had fantastic meals and top service every time. It is no more exspensive than other top restuarants we have been too. The food is incredible. if ever in whangareie you have to go there. Would need to ring and book to ensure you get a table.

TopSail has a very high reputation locally and IMO it's deserved. I'd hesitate to say it's the best in Whangarei, though it certainly has the best view. Excellent food and (after an early glitch where we appeared to be ignored in favour of a table of 10) attentive and professional service. Prices are "fine dining" level, but that's what you... More

Was such a beautiful meal. Not the biggest selection of entrees and mains, yet still found it hard to pick what to have. Entree was nice, a little small in portion size I thought, but certainly made up for it in the mains. I had the curry pie and it was delicious, and main just on it's own was a... More

A little tricky to find even with a sat-nav but it is on the first floor of the Yacht Clubhouse. Plenty of parking on the grass verge opposite exemplary. We had had a recommendation from an art teacher we had talked to the previous evening. It appeared full, we had not made a reservation, but a table was found for... More

The title speaks for itself. On a beautiful day this is definitely the place to dine. We came here for my grandads 70th 3 years ago and it was an afternoon enjoyed by all. Advice: Must book to secure your table :-)
