This place was a great find while staying in Hahei. Really chilled atmosphere, yummy food especially the kumura chips with aioli. Pillowy and delicious. Somewhere to go and chill and enjoy your evening rather than rush. Girls provided friendly helpful service in an arty relaxed, semi outdoor setting. Recommend booking so you don't miss out

We found this place advertised at the brochure in our bach. It stated it had oysters and we fancied a late lunch of oysters,so we jumped in the car and headed over. It's a quirky old building. We got to the counter to order and they had no oysters (I must stress that the whole of the East Coast of... More

We very much enjoyed our lunch at this restaurant. A funky little place that is built into a house. Neat garden art and beautiful gardens surround you. My husband had fish and chips and I had a truly wonderful salad. Nothing is cheap in this area and this place is no different...I choked on the $20 price for my salad...but... More

Eggsentric is one of the best in its own right as it is very different. They have awesome bands that play throughout the summer months and sitting in the garden with friends enjoying the ambiance and peacefulness that Flaxmill Bay offers is just the best. Keep up the good work Dave and the family and they also have Woofers. If... More

Excellent quality dinner on New Year's Eve. Try to sit outside in the garden, enjoy the beautiful setting and listen to the birds. Very nice service. Prices not too high. Also good selection of food at lunch time.

The restaurant is located along the main road just outside of Whitianga and can be easy to miss, but well worth the stop. As the name implies, the cafe was eccentric for sure. The grounds of the contain many unique art sculptures, eclectic music, and an inviting atmosphere. All the dishes are written on a massive chalk board which is... More

Worth making the trip out to during the summer for an amazing brunch, to enjoy the sunshine and to take in the clean air. The kitchen is a wee bit frantic and seems disorganised however the staff are absolutely lovely and friendly so you overlook the chaos. There is a wee store on the side of the cafe which stocks...

This place certainly lived up to its reputation... We had heard all good things! We popped in for a lazy lunch on a gorgeous sunny day and each of our 4 dishes were superb. The salads must be one of the best I have ever been presented with. Full of home-grown goodness and flavour. All beautifully presented with edible flower... More
