"IT'S YOUR PLACE" ...That's what we like to say, so welcome to our place which is also your place. We enjoy the company of our local clientele who have become regulars at the restaurant and created a great community with whom we share our lives every day. It's the 'local' place to hang out for coffee and chats and a great place for meals all day. Our chefs are passionate about fresh food, prepared beautifully and served with style. We are committed to healthy and delicious food that satisfies all tastes, so whether it's our famously tender and tasty calamari, or our weekly fish dish specials, or a vegetarian delight, a hearty steak, or a divine dessert, we'll have something just for you. Our commitment to sustainability and environmental awareness is important to us, and we serve free range chicken, pork and eggs. We recycle everything we can from bottle tops (Kidney Kids Foundation fundraisers), to food waste (pigs, and compost). Our community,our tamariki (children) and the wider whanau (family) mean everything, and we support our local charities and services wherever and however, we can to support our community. So...Welcome...To your place.

Came to the restaurant on the recommendation of the owner of the lodge where I was staying. From the start the staff were friendly, helpful and enthusiastic about their food. The curry I had for main was delicious. Come dessert time they bent over backwards to find something I could have (I am intolerant of cream) adapting a sauce especially.... More

Left this restaurant all smiles. All plates, from entree to desert, were tasty, ample, and well presented. I'm commenting after a first experience, but I'm very sure that I'll be just as pleased on the many times I intend to return.

Modern cuisine, popular, relaxed and friendly. Keri Keri does not have many places to eat after 4:30pm when most cafes/restaurants seemed to close. Discovered this late in our stay there which was a pity. Recommended.

Had takeout ribs our first night in Kerikeri, they were fantastic. Best ribs I've had in a long time, plenty of meat and great sauce. Went back for dinner on our last night in town. Great meal and great service. I highly recommend anyone visiting Kerikeri to eat here.

As the title suggests the ribs were delicious, and more than compensated for the tired looking salad that my partner waas presented with. I can even forgive them giving me the wrong beer.

Mats W, Owner at Cafe Cinema, responded to this review

Our ribs are 'famous' in these parts, and we're thrilled you enjoyed them. But, I hope you got the right beer after all? A 'tired salad' should never happen, so we'll be looking into this to make sure noone experiences anything less than GREAT at CC's. Thanks for your review. We appreciate it. More
