Great meal but service was a little wobbly

We went here for a midweek dinner and it was busy! (always a good sign!). A lovely meal of seafood and steak...and a great cheese course. I love the wine menu as well, a great but very reasonably priced selection. One of the draws is the awesome salad bar which is yummy and full of yummy things... read more

We were staying in the motel across the road and were recommended this place. The food was lovely, especially the fish. The waitresses were delightful and the price was very reasonable. A gem of a place!

We arrived in Kaitaia quite late and having checked in to our Motel, wanted some decent food. The Beachcomber was pretty much the first place we found but what a great place. We think it’s the home of the happiest waitress we’ve ever encountered. No idea what her name was but she was incredibly happy. Her service was fantastic and... More

Four years ago we found this restaurant and on a recent return visit we decided to come again. We were not disappointed. We had lunch one day and dinner the other. Both are heartily recommended. For once they showed that New Zealand food is not always bland and unexciting but has real flavour and some style about it. The bouillabaisse... More

Seafood platter was fantastic, salad bar was good and the carrot salad was something a bit different, a great surprise. Staff were very friendly and efficient, there when you needed them and given that I turned up 2 mins before they closed and was the last person in the restaurant, they still looked after me and made me feel welcome....

We had the seafood basket. Great fresh local products and good value at $37 incl access to the salad bar. Friendly efficient waitresses. Busy when we were there with lots of locals and fellow travellers. The meals came quickly.

So on this journey round the country implementing systems we have encountered a surprising number of great places to eat. And beachcombers is high on the list of restaurants worth driving to eat at. Great ostrich fillets, seared duck was simply perfectly cooked and an unlimited salad Barack for a great dinner twice in a row. However add in a... More

Surf and Turf places seemed to disappear from North America back in the 90s, but they seem to be still available in New Zealand. The food was tasty, hot and plentiful at this location and the restaurant was a short walk from our B & B. Friendly, efficient service and good food.
