“Best scrambled eggs in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

We went to Argo's as a large group for breakfast the morning after a friends wedding and not only was the coffee great, the scrambled eggs were amazing!

Having been to a number of other places in Whangamata and putting up with terrible service, meals arriving 20 minutes apart (ordered at the same time) and some pretty average food, Argo's are now the go to default place in Whangamata for us.

“Great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Our B&B hosts recommended Argo on our recent trip and we completely agree. Both our seafood dishes were great and so was the wine. Highly recommended!

“Great night out.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012 via mobile

A great night out with the family. Chicken wrapped in bacon with fresh veges for me, beef roast of the day for my wife and a salmon fillet for Dad. All very good, fresh, tasty, and quite large portions. Great dessert options too, chocolate overload is a great choice if you still have room after dinner. We will definitely return for those special occasions. Bookings recommended as it is a fairly small restaurant and can be booked out on the weekends.
