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.

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

My wife and I hadn't eaten at Reva's for some time, so we decided to head there for lunch. What can I say but EXCELLENT! Top class service. Top class food. Our fish was perfectly cooked and came with rice and a salad. All alongside Whangarei's picturesque Town Basin Marina. It was the best meal and the best service we've... More

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
