Lunch with friends on the front deck by the water

I enjoyed the setting although it would be a little cramped for anyone with children. The service is slow . Coffee was nice but not as hot as I asked for. The food was quite average.

Had a really great meal for good value - the staff treated us like kings, really looked after us and were interested in our dining experience and gave us excellent advice as to where to visit next. Thank you!

For vegetarians the menu is limited, but other then that a great place to while away some time. The views are great, the food is good and drinks slide down a treat.

We walked to Reva's at the suggestion of a colleague. There were 5 of us and we were keen to have a large meal. Unfortunatley when we arrived we were told the Express menu is all that is on offer. Basically pizza and pasta. The service was great, but unfortunately the food was only average. A real shame as the... More

I think they have a great location, but do not make the most of it. If there was some nice outdoor tables etc this would add to the place instead of the plastic stuff they have.

I popped in for a quick dinner on a Saturday recently. I was seated fairly quickly and having taken the opportunity to read the menu on the door, was able to place my order pretty quickly. The "famous" taco salad was good, and plentiful, but nothing that really packed a punch or was memorable. The only issue with it would... More

This restaurant is sitting on one of the best sites in town, but is now old and tired and very much in need of a revamp. The retro plastic table cloths, on the verandah tables, have had their day. With the right revamp of both décor and menu , this could become the To Go To place in whangarei.

The lamb cutlet in reduced plum sauce in entre size was excellent, so was the mussel. The pizza special with pepperoni, tomato sauce, capsicum etc. It was delicious. Very good coffee too. The decor of the place is so-so. Staff was friendly enough. My friend who was a local, told me that it might have a recent change of chef... More

We were on the way back home from Kerikeri and parked at the Waterfront for lunch. We were greeted warmly and seated inside as there were no seats available outside on the deck. The view of the boats was pleasant. I ordered the Shrimp Boat which was fantastic. Lots of fat shrimps in a delicious aioli on garlic and herb... More

We ate here on a Bank Holiday and were hit by a surcharge on the bill - is this usual in New Zealand ? The food was very ordinary and one of our choices, a menu special, snapper was overcooked and not worth the price premium.I could not recommend eating here on this showing.
