A very yummy place to eat! Decent food and good portions. Can get very busy though it's worth the wait! Friendly staff.

This is a busy place yet the service was excellent and the food was great. Situated on the banks of a stream you'll watch the ducks go by as you engage with some of the best food in the region. We stopped in for a coffee and went back for dinner. Excellent all round.

We were a family of four adults and two children. There are many options on the menu and we were more than satisfied with the dishes we ordered. The children were looked after with friendly service from a good waiter. Good choice of drinks including a selection of local Craft Beers. Will definitely be back.

A busy restaurant in the centre of Matakana close to car parks serving exceptionally good food. My partner chose surf and turf and I chose the fillet. The surf and turf was an enormous meal with oysters, prawns, mussels and steak. The fillet was served with a good sized portion of greens, a Yorkshire pudding filled with chicken pate and... More

Great place to relax and enjoy a meal with friends and family, quiet and calm couldn't ask for much more when your from Auckland. Food was great, even greater selection.

Had breakfast outside overlooking the river with the vibe of the Saturday growers market in the background. Great food and couldn't go past something as simple as mince on toast. Only downside is battling the traffic in and out on Saturday mornings so get there early!!

This place has a great menu that everyone will be happy with, even a separate no Gluten menu. It's got a great vibe and the staff are a lot of fun. One can eat outside or in. If you are in Matakana then don't miss a meal here.
