If you enjoy fine dining this is the place to go be. Colin and Rachael have everything down to a fine art. The food is outstanding and the hospitality is second to none. The pork belly is just delicious and the pana cota is a must. Never disappointed on any of our numerous visits.

We dined twice at Food during our Northlands stay. Once with friends and once on our own. Friendly and professional service paired with the high quality of produce and care taken by the kitchen would certainly keep us coming back if we lived in this region. As visitors we can sometimes fail to locate good dining locations if we are... More

Where to start, the venue - Whisked away to Bali, The Cusine - Whisked to Paris, New York (They wished), the Wine list - Just Whisked away. All 1st class, with knowledgeable friendly and helpful waiting staff... Food for Foodies, has to be one of the top 10 in NZ.

Amazing garden setting - little pricey but very nice for lunch. Recommended by another restaurant in Whangerai - Split.

You can tell you are arriving somewhere special. Surrounded by beautifully landscaped but natural gardens, you enter a cafe that will serve well cooked, imaginative yet simple dishes. Of course being in the best fishing area, the Bay of Islands, we selected Kingfish sashimi with avocado and wasabi followed by Hapuka fish and chips which was perfectly cooked and presented.... More

We had lunch here while visiting the area. The service is excellent, very attentive. Or waiters even took a quick order for our the users old while we browsed the menu. The food was great, especially the seafood dish; and the kids meal was excellent - fresh pasta and a sauce with flavour - not something you find at an... More

My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary here recently and it was the best dinner I've had in the past few years!!! We are not easy to impress either being foodies. The staff looked after us so well, and the food was phenomenal! Everything we were served was outstanding. The head chef and owner Colin Ashton is incredible!... More

First time dining here. It was banquet night so one of us dove into that while the other went a la carte. Basically couldn't fault a thing. Exceptional food highlighting the eye fillet, pork belly, kafir and lemongrass pannacotta. Popular place on banquet night so with a full restaurant it gave us a fair look at the restaurants ability to... More

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in so this is a serious comment. The local scallops were so good I had them as an entree and then as a main course - twice. My friend didn't stop raving over her Fillet steak. The service was friendly and excellent. It was an uphill walk back to... More
