If the weather is good, make sure you sit at a table outside for great views and a good atmosphere. The food is good, service excellent, and the tavern is really just the epitome of a seaside pub that makes every tourist want to move here. ( Well, that's what I overheard from tourists at the next table ! ) I know if I lived in Whangarei, I'd be driving out to Parua Bay quite frequently for a good meal.
