Beautiful setting. Two clams and one mussel in in their shells, sitting in eight tablespoons of lukewarm creamy fish stock does not make a clam chowder...$13 was a little steep for this.

You start with a fantastic location. Early evening, sun going down, tide rising in the basin and a very pleasant temperature on the veranda. Helpful service with the wine choice set us up for a great meal. The balance is when the food was delivered. My "best end of lamb" was 2 cutlets off the end of a medium rack... More

Located next to the historic Stone Store and on the river, this is in a picture-perfect setting. The service was a bit slow and the starters were a bit better than the main, but overall, a really enjoyable meal.

Beautiful setting and lovely staff. Not a big fan of the bar food, but love the restaurant menu. Don't miss Friday nights happy hour with live music and half prize drinks :-)

Came here, to try at first hand having read mixed reviews. Lovely setting, lots to look at, food was fresh and tasty. Would recommend sea food chowder. Cost very reasonable, two lunches, two iced chocolates - $22 each.

Ate here whilst travelling north on a business trip after having a slight detour to find a nice lodging for the night in Kerikeri. The food was fabulous, had the lamb and it, together with the included veges was plenty enough so had to resist the beautiful sounding desserts. Had a lovely single glass of Rose after the waitress recommendation... More

We had a great coffee right when restaurant opened with lovely peaceful view on river. We had a look at the dinner menu out of interest and the desserts looked so fantastic that we decided to come back that night. We skipped dinner so we could fully appreciate dessert (this is allowed on holiday). We were not disappointed. Salted caramel... More
