“Well worth tracking down.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

Having booked in to a camp site in town we headed out to find somewhere to eat. We were a bit worried when most eateries in this small town were burger bars and places where you pick the picture behind the counter. We walked through the centre of town and found Cafe Nikau which looks more like a coffee shop from the outside, but with nothing else taking our fancy we walked in. We were so glad we did. The food was good, the service was swift and friendly and the fact that there was a steady stream of locals popping in for a meal, a drink or a take-away spoke volumes.

“Little gem - fresh, creative food in a small beach town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Arrived late in Opitiki - hotel phoned ahead and cafe stayed open just for us. Delicious pan fried garlic scallops, perfectly prepared lamb rump on al dente veg, partner had beef and noodle salad which she found fresh and tasty. House wine was good - NOT sitting around as is sometimes the case in small places. Service was friendly and attentive. One the better meals we've had in NZ.
