'DOBRI DOSLI' - WELCOME TO SPLIT

Enjoy a tasty cooked meal using fresh local produce and seafood, and succulent New Zealand lamb & beef. There is beer on tap and a range of beautiful New Zealand wines. Whether you are dining with us or simply wish to enjoy the atmosphere, a glass of wine and a delicious mezze platter after work, you are always welcome at Split.

The two separate areas within Split, cater for a restaurant dining experience with cocktail bar, or a garden bar with a fun relaxed atmosphere, and a giant screen to entertain if desired. You can find us opposite the Post Office in Rathbone St, Whangarei.

We had dinner at Splitbon a balmy Tuesday evening. It was very busy however our waiter took our drinks order and apologised saying that there would be a little wait for food. We didn't mind as it was a gorgeous evening and we had a great table outside. We had our drinks replenished and then we were brought our food... More

Have been here before for drinks but later in the evening and it gets really busy, the the... More

I could not believe how accommodating this restaurant was when I visited them on Thursday the 14th January 2016. I am a mother of two children aged 10 and 12. We were in town doing the pre school shop and decided to do lunch somewhere nice as a treat. Kids being kids, my 10 year old only wanted fast food,... More

Once again Splits didn't let us down. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Food and service to a high standard, and it's the first place that comes to mind when I'm asked where to go in Whangarei. Well done to the Splits crew.

Split Restaurant never fails to deliver a great dining experience - our meals last night were absolutely superb. The service is always excellent and the wine list includes our favourite award-winning Marsden Estate Black Rocks Chardonnay. We will be back again soon!

Quite casual, but in a good way. The guy who waited our table clearly had a vested interest In the place beyond being a minimum wage employee, very attentive without being annoying, and good at up selling. The food was tasty and well presented. Service was quick. Mains $29 to $ 35, so about average. I would say go for... More
