The menu is varied and extensive, and there is at least one dish that would be easily made vegan friendly, (and there was a great bean salad in the salad bar, to round out your plant protein...). The meals we had were delicious. For us, one HUGE plus was the quiet atmosphere. Good music played low and unobtrusive, and unlike... More

Although a fairly large town, Kataia is more a farming village than a tourist destination. For this reason it was a surprise to find an establishment such as the Beachcomber. From the moment you enter there is a special feel; it is obvious that someone really cares about this business. The friendly greeting merely accentuates this feel. The menu is... More

We ate both nights at this restaurant during a recent stopover on the way to Cape Reinga. The menu selection was good and the quality of food and service great. The surrounds were very pleasant with a subtle beachcomber theme. Particularly surprising was the availability of Czech beer "Budvar"! Along with the usual favourites

You couldn't fault this restaurant, food was excellent, extensive menu, great selection of drinks and all staff were very friendly and efficient. I certainly will be back. A must to try if in the far north.

Great service by Shannon and the rest of the team! Matched by great food! Beautiful steaks and great salad bar to choose from. Great choice of wines to match. This restaurant is well presented and has nice decor through out. Great for a family, couples or solo people.

A restaurant with bar. I am told that NZ laws mean you have to have food in the bar. Either way it's the most pleasant place I came across in town, with fresh modern decor. Decent drinks menu too. The dining area has plenty of covers, and it's better to concentrate on the inside as the external view is less... More
