Enjoyable brunch

It was nice being able sit on the waterfront, but you are able to sit inside where the fire is going. Had two eggs benedict, one with salmon, one with bacon. It was quite tasty. Staff were friendly and the food was acceptably priced. Iced chocolate was delicious.

The menu hasn't changed in years and the service is still as bad as it ever was. Slow and not particularly friendly or obliging. Just a little bit of attention to tables when drinks are empty / low to save having to trudge up to the bar and queue each time you want a drink would be nice too.

We had dinner at Reva's last night and had a delicious meal. My husband is currently following a fairly basic diet to help arthritis pain and had planned to have fish but unfortunately they had no fish available last night. Our waitress was exceptionally helpful and after discussing with the chef, came up with a meal he could enjoy -... More

Gorgeous location - looking out onto the water and boats. I had a delicious pizza for one (just mozzarella, tomato & cheese) which was so much larger than I expected! Others had the coconut mussels, soup of the day (kumara & bacon) and wedges. Everything was eaten despite being full! Great customer service, very friendly staff. Recommended.

Having specifically requested and confirmed an inside table we were ushered outside to a dodgy plastic wobbly picnic table. Service was terrible and the waitress inexperienced poor girl. Everyone got their plates at the same time but mine came about 1/2 hr later after repeated queries. I ended up eating alone when everyone else was finished. Food was bland and... More

A group of 6 of us ate here on Monday night. We were rewarded with a cosy fire, helpful staff and delicious food. My salmon was on top of the outstanding, creamy rice risotto. All other meals among my fellow diners were deemed to be equally as good. Desserts were also tried and included sticky date pudding. I chose instead... More

This restaurant is a must to visit. Set right on the waterfront with inside/outside dining. Great for both lunch/dinner or even just a coffee at morning tea. Reva's is well known for their pizzas as well as a good variety menu for both lunch and dinner. It has a great atmosphere and is set in the town basin
