Super service and fantastic dessert

Wonderful service made you feel very welcome. Very impressed with the unlimited salad bar even it doesn't cost extra when you ordered a main. The salad are very fresh and good quality. Even you are full, can't miss the dessert, must eat!! The house made gelato are amazing!

Good food, good menu choices,service and a nice atmosphere decorated to showcase the Far Norths plentiful seafood. Nicest place to eat in Kaitaia and a great little Bar area, cosy, comfortable and quiet.

Great restaurant, excellent food, fast attentive service, nice decor, & salad bar was a good touch. Only place open on Monday night, but a good find. Recommended.

We have been here many times in the last few years. The menu has great choices but for me the star is the salad selection. The salad bar is always amazing, nutritious and colourful. When ordering a main the salad is free and you can make your choices before the meal appears, so you can graze and add the remainder... More

Great food and service. The owner/manager is a local legend and requires no notepad to take your order, which is a magical skill as far as I'm concerned. Generous portions and lots of delicious choices, but by far the personal edible highlight of the evening for me was the gelato. It is made in a variety of flavours according to... More

The two waitresses (an Italian German and a Hokianga local) were really helpful and fun. I wanted something healthy and simply bought a mains course for the salad bar (I could eat as much as I wanted). There was a a huge range of salads (maybe 20 or 25 options) and some of it grunty too. It all emanated freshness.... More

Always love the salad bar. Had yummy pumpkin soup. Easy to take baby in the pram and feed her on the couches in the bar area. Plenty of room for a big group.

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. The only issue... 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
