A popular spot on marina inlet, it was a bit noisy, but it was pouring rain so everyone was inside. Food good. Only criticism we weren't told to come to counter to order, so we waited a very long time. We would have been very happy to do this, had we been told on seating.

Everywhere seems to point to Reva's on the waterfront but the real deal was a bit of a let down. The service was pretty shocking indeed and the kitchen service mighty slow. The food itself was pretty good but the rest of it left a sour taste in our mouths. Unfortunately it is about the only place that offers an... More

Long wait only to be served a burnt pizza. Not going back. We were given a unburnt on and told they wouldn't charge us....there is no way I was paying any way.

We ate here the two nights we stayed in Whangarei. Friendly staff and great view of the marina. All our meals were fantastic. The lamb shanks were huge and the steak was done just right. Nice decor and not too loud. Will definitely eat here again. Thanks Reva's

Being a Sunday, there was few choices down at the Town Basin for dinner, with Reva's being the only place open we could find. The menu was extremely appealing,especially the touted chowder. Service was great, as there were very few people in the restaurant, which we hoped bode well for dinner service. As we were in no rush, we asked... More

Great location overlooking the marina - best spot in the whole town. Details let the restaurant down though - the outside tables & tablecloths look like they are 20 years old, very shabby looking. The food is normally OK, but the service is very hap-hazard, have been in here at least 3 times when I have been completely ignored by... More

Happened upon it one lunchtime so called in. Wise move as the food was very good as was the service. Right by the harbour it made an interesting backdrop to our meal

The wine arrived on time, the orders were taken BUT the meals didn't arrive, didn't arrive, didn't arrive so we asked the wait person-oh she had forgotten to place our order with the kitchen!!

Not many restaurants can boast of a location as beautiful and interesting as Reva's. If you are lucky enough to meet Reva, she is the cherry on the cake. Historically Reva's is an icon on the world map for yachties. All that along with good food, wine, and often live music, this is a restaurant not to miss if you... More

Booked for Sunday lunch by my Sister-in-law, a resident of Whangarei, the family gathered from Australia, the UK (us) and New Zealand, expecting a good meal together. Sadly, although the food was acceptable and the location excellent, poor service and a disinterested and offhand waiter spoilt a family re-union. The bill was as slow as the food service and I...
