Great setting, disappointing service

A wonderful setting right on the quay - decent menu and the food was good too, but the staff were slack and we had to prompt them twice for taking our order and then delivering our drinks. Pity - this would have been a 5* rating.

We have been comeing to Reva's at least monthly for the last 20 years but have known Reva from when she initially set up in the old AMP Building. The service has always been very welcoming and I am very disappointed to hear she is closing.

Dissapointing meal - Nachos & mussel fritters. Pizza was ok, beer is cold. Mussel fritters tasted doughy. Never had nachos with spicy avocado ... kinda weird. Outlook of the boats is nice. Service is polite and friendly, but slow on attendance. A nice place to come for a beer and wedges I think, but thats it. Won't come back here... More

setting is beautiful especially sitting outside. The standards very poor, the staff were appalling and unorganised, extremely slow service, they were noisily talking and giving orders in front of diners. Food the worst I have had - pork belly was burnt, chips soggy, seafood pasta bland, garlic bread was probably reheated from the previous day not a great experience I... More

Sitting on the balcony overlooking the bay filled with yachts from all over the world - gorgeous! The staff were friendly and attentive. The decor of the restaurant was fabulous. The food was mexican style and very tasty.

This restaurant is in prime location at the waterfront. Outside seating is on and at old green plastic chairs and tables with grotty table cloths. The last twice I have been the service was atrocious. Could certainly do with a face lift and modernising, both food, menu, and decor.

We both were craving for some salad, (unfortunately salad is rarely on the menu of NZ restaurants) and at Reva's we got very good Cesar’s- and lamb salad. The place is rather old and could need a renovation

On a very hot day we escaped to the cool interior of this waterside restaurant. We had a selection of meals....mussel fritters, pasta. .porkbelly, and pizzas. The regular pizza was delicious and a very generous size. The porkbelly was fabulous. We were looked after and all had an enjoyable meal.

Always wanted to go here, was the place to go years back. Went for wedding anniversary recently and would not be interested in returning. Disappointed with the cheap plastic table and chairs as soon as I saw them. Had to prompt for service at least 3 times. Dairy whip with desert - all air, little touches like that make an... More
