A last minute decision to visit Oliver's on the way out of town was a good one, the food was excellent quality and service speed good. What prevents them getting a five is attention to detail with our orders they muddled the content between two similar plates. This was however rectified, but a smile would have gone a long way.

The home made burger was something special - juicy and chock full of fresh flavours that made you want another, but was too filling to entertain a second. The full, all day breakfast was very good as well... More

We visited Oliver's Cafe and enjoyed their Yummy pizzas, the gentleman who served us was extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming. Good value for money. Child friendly and relaxing environment. Good wine selection and they had just got beer on tap installed and we will be back.

Today was the second time we have visited Oliver's for breakfast on a public holiday and been disappointed. Firstly, we do not mind paying the 15% surcharge if the food is of a good standard. The service was acceptable, however the food leaves a lot to be desired. I had fried eggs and toast, a simple meal. The fried eggs... More

Squashed in between a popular Mediterranean restaurant and a bar is the great 'surf-y' cafe 'Oliver's'. I regularly pop in an grab a coffee to go, ok,... More

A nice standard of food served here today. The sliders were very tasty & we were well satisfied by the service. A sheltered spot near the sand & surf of beautiful Orewa Beach.

Went here with my partner for brunch as it looks very cute with a fantastic location and generally good reviews. I had the breakfast with avocado. Wasn't very busy but we had to go up and request a menu as were not sure whether one would be brought to our table if we sat down. Meal took too long to... More

Super little cafe on the front of Orewa , highly recommended the Toasties and the ceasar wrap was magnificent , don't be put off when you read the menu at the entrance, there are lots more super things in the cabinet at the back of the cafe. A great little place
