We always have a yummy meal here. The menu is huge, so many options to choose from! My daughter can be pretty fussy but always gets the Banana and Nutella Pancakes (did I mention they come with smashed maltesers and ice cream?) and told me yesterday it's her favourite place to go for a meal. The service is always friendly... More

Ate here a couple of times during our visit to Matakana, 4 of us had mixed reviews on the food some really good but sadly crumbed fish badly overcooked. Its a nice spot but still think a bit of work could be done on the consistency of the food

This is a gorgeous spot for a yummy brunch or snack or lunch. Nice location and a good organic selection on the menu. I found the service a little slow and there is no true 'host' ... but overall it was a nice experience.

Have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. A diverse and interesting menu that promotes local fresh produce and wines so good for the community. Service is friendly if a little laid back. Fabulous options for gluten free people who get a whole menu to themselves! Book ahead as often busy. There's outdoor seating for fine days by the... More

I went for lunch with a friend. We got served by our waiter promptly and received our order quickly but when it came to wanting to order dessert our empty plates sat on our table for at least 20 minutes. There seemed to be only one waiter actively working the entire restaurant while the managers were chatting to customers or... More

With great reviews I booked our dinner in advance and was so looking forward to it. It was a real let down. They promote local fresh produce, but it was neither fresh or tasty. A big disappointment and will not be back.

My friend and I both had a dish from the special lunch menu and neither of us was disappointed. My chicken livers in yorkshire pudding were tasty and satisfying, and my friend's goat cheese salad was great too. He was especially thrilled with the beer selection and I enjoyed the glass of house wine I indulged in. Service was friendly... More

We dropped off the N1 and into Matakana on the way back from Bay of Islands. We were lucky to get a table outside in the sun by the stream. The menu choice is huge and selection was hard. All our mains were delicious and the beer great though my first choice was not available. Service was fine even though... More
