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.

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.

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 :-)
