I guess I should say first that we tend to come here on the nights when the fixed-price menu is available (Sunday when I last checked), as it's really good value. The menu is short but only the most picky won't find anything they like, and the food expertly prepared and served. Decor is modern, in keeping with the overall... More

Tonic is one of my favorite restaurants in Whangarei. The meal is always good, the staff and service are excellent and pleasant. The meals are reasonably priced. I would highly recommend dining at Tonic.

Having heard rave reviews about this place we tried it for our wedding anniversary. Firstly, it's small. We knew this but even so did not expect to be put on a rather strange table in the middle of what should have been a walkway. Like they are just squeezing as many tables in as possible...

A good sign I think, food and service was very good, my daughter thought her eye fillet steak was the best she had ever had. We... More
