Fantastic

We ate there three nights in a row while staying in Kaitaia and didn't get bored. Extensive menu and delicious meal, the salad bar option was absolutely fantastic offering very fresh gourmet ingredients. Not to mention sea food dishes! Service is exceptional, very friendly and hospitable.

We'd checked the reviews on trip advisors and found this restaurant to be rated #3 of all restaurants in Kaitaia. It should easily be number 1. They have an extensive menu, something delicious for ALL tastes, for those seeking a fine dining experience.... More

Highly recommend this restaurant. Wonderful staff who are friendly, swift and accurate. Excellent food from a great menu. Gluten free options plentiful. Extensive salad bar to serve yourself from. Open on a Monday night when many eateries are closed. Interesting and tasteful island/beach decor which was perfect on a hot evening. The fish meal was glorious as the fish had... More

A salad bar is available with a very good choice of salads and dressings. The premises are well presented and the service is very good. Prices are typical of city levels. Half of the scotch steak was chewy with I guess fat through it, the rest was fine.

The stacked vegetables I had were really amazing! And the salad buffet, that is included in every main course, was magnificent in itself. Lots of (also... More

What fantastic friendly staff ... enjoyed the idea of the salad buffet and meals were almost perfect (daughter ordered asian honey soy chicken which was a little too hot for her palate, and mine when I tried it).

I had a long day. I was keen for steak with chips and salad. I got it, and it was the one of the most delicious versions of this meal I've ever eaten. Staff were great, so was the beer. Couldn't be more thrilled. Cheers!
