Yummy burger and hot chocolate

Food is freshly made to order and portions are generous.Moderately priced, we can buy supper for our family of 3 adults for $43.We often have the take away option as we sit on the shore of the bay and watch all the activities on the wharf and water .Lovely! Highly recommended

Today we enjoyed the best fish & chips we've ever had. Cooked superbly the fish was battered & chips crispy. For $10 p/p it was the best prices lunch in town. The service was exceptional! You won't do better!

It will serve the purpose if you want takeaway fish and chips, but it is just OK at best. We had the Tarakihi fish, as recommended. It looked good coming out of the fryer, but turned out to be a bit of a disappointment as table fair. The fish was way too heavy in oil, basically greasy, and the flesh... More

After 2 weeks in NZ in both North and South Island, this place has the best chips. Appropriate crispness, no tiny burnt bits, saltiness just right. I had to wait for the chips even though I could see that it was cooked and sitting in the basket over the fryer. Worth the wait. We ate every chip, nothing left for... More

Burger made better than mums. Thick pattie with wonderful flavours. I added a portion lovely fries, but couldnt eat all the food. Was a large portion. Definitely value for money.

I can see that this review will be bucking the trend, however I think personally that the fish and chips are a little bit to be desired, and I had a feeling that would be the case which is why I ordered a Hawaiian Burger. So the burger was beautiful, the meat pattie was obviously made fresh you could see... More

Ate takeaways at this place after the 3rd stage of the Tour of Northland. Food was fantastic, as was Judith and Alan (owners). Strongly recommend making a point of getting takeaways from this place. Then take a walk down to the wharf and sit and eat.
