We really enjoyed our dinner at the cafe cinema. We experienced a very personal atmosphere and good food. The cafe cinema offers much more than you could expect from the name oft the restaurant.

We came here because I was travelling with a bunch of Swedes and we heard the owner was Swedish- we figured the cakes, cookies and coffees would be great but didn't know what to expect about the food... wow were we surprised! I had the crispy calamari salad and it may have been my favourite dish of our three weeks... More

You have probably read my earlier reviews of the café cinema, I am so pleased to give it another try, the curry was yummy and the fish and chips looked huge and was heralded as delicious, don't ever give up on a place if you didn't like it the first time, give it another go as I am so pleased...

Order a glass of wine, form the adjacent restaurant, then take your seat, air conditioned, super comfy seats, lots of leg room, great sound, and a delight to watch your chosen film.

Cafe cinema is a great choice for breakfasts, the counter food is available from about 9.30 and the muffins are always good. Coffee is well made and fast, even with picky coffee orders! there are many cafes in Kerikeri but we do tend to go here more often as they are always friendly and have constantly good food.

Wow, great review, thanks for that! Sorry it took a while to respond...where did the time go? It's a bit of a brain game, trying to work out who the reviewer is from the cryptic names...hmmm...but whoever it is, we'll try to keep pleasing! Thanks again. More
