Very Family Friendly

We had a table for 9 adults and 6 children last night to celebrate my husband's birthday. After the initial wait at the counter to order (the restaurant was very busy last night) we soon had our food, all of which was beautifully presented and tasted great. We skipped dessert as I took a... read more

We always make sure to stop at Breakers while we are travelling since we dont have it where we are from. On this occasion i was disappointed to find an earwig in my salad. The staff didnt seem too worried about it. They said the salad is grown locally without sprays and thats why the bug was there. They should... More

after looking at the Thursday night market we decided to look elsewhere for a meal and we got a good one at this pub. Only they did not have enough staff on and it took quite a while before we could place our order

Whenever we are in Hastings (my home town) we go here with my parents and have such good meals, the lovely scallops are always cooked to perfection.

Breakers is a popular place and always appears busy, we had a largish group so I am pleased we booked for our Saturday night meal. We have gone to Breakers since it first started in Hastings and although the prices have crept up over the years to mid range restaurant pricing the standard of the "Pub bar type" meals have...

We went to Breakers on a Sunday and took advantage of their special roast meal. The meat was to die for but the roast potatoes were a little under cooked. The desert was a tasteless apple crumble.

Went there for a $ 11.00 Fish and Chip lunch and whilst the food represented good value for money (and certainly popular), I guess I prefer slightly quieter surroundings for lunch, though this is no fault of Breakers as it seems this is the market they are after (high volume, lower cost). Coffee was a little underwhelming, service is order... More
