Nice place

This is a quirky venue with an unusual menu. There are some lovely gardens if the weather permits. The food is well presented and reasonably priced. If you are visiting Cooks Beach it's with a visit.

I love this place. Amazing food, friendly family feel amongst staff, beautiful garden. Great for young families outside with sandpit, play area etc. Our family favourite dinning experience. Dave's the best chef! Thank you. See you next year. ☺️

This restaurant is so good that we went three times during our weeks stay in whitianga. The Iki Mata (sp?) is incredible, the salads contained over 15 ingredients and the baileys cheesecake ... Wow. I know I sound like a unrestrained teenager but we found this place that good

Probably the best breakfast I've had!!! Cornstack with bacon and eggs - to die for!!! A quirky place with great atmosphere and of course great food. The whole family loved their meals.

We had a long walk from ferry landing to Cooks beach and back. We came along the Eggsentric Cafe and enjoyed an ice cream made by the owners. This cafe is recommended and a great place to take a well deserved brake!

We enjoyed the food here, but had to queue for quite a while to order. They have some nice local options like scallops. Lovely garden.

We first came here in 2003 on our first and what we thought was going to be our only trip to NZ from the UK. We have been back four times now. Enough said.

We had a lazy lunch here last week and it did not disappoint, the fish and chips were very fresh beautifully cooked and generous in portions. The home baking and the home made ice cream are superb. Everyone in our group of 6 were satisfied.

Wonderfully set off the road to Cooks Beach. The menu is small but enough choices to satisfy different tastes. The service was adequately attentive and the food full of flavour, very delicious and just the right quantity. Good value for money but save some room for desert!
