Certainly enjoyed our coffee and cake. The waiting staff were very friendly. Only downside for us was the music - too loud!

This delightful restaurant on the Ahuriri shoreline is well worth a visit. Four of us went for dinner. Before the meal Mr 52 and I had a lemon/ginger/honey hot drink. It was made from fresh lemons and ginger. Wow. For starters we shared labne and date pastries (tiny, delicious), and asian fries - these fries were the best thing we... More

This is my favourite spot for casual meals or coffee. Indoor or outdoor seating is optional and being over the road from the sea it's a great location. Service is always good as is the food. Parking is easy to get as there is street parking and a car park adjacent to the beach. you could see a movie at... More

The saying "you get what you pay for" is a pretty good summation of this small restaurant. Right beside a small cinema and across the road from the beach with a seaside walkway. Very classy food, fresh, tasty but not the cheapest. Enjoyed a quiet excellent dinner. Another occassion my wife enjoyed a great brunch here. You can buy meal-gift... More

Pop in any time of the day and soak up the relaxed smooth atmosphere, discreet service, beautifully prepared food or a wine from their expertly designed wine list which offers a magnificent array of Hawke’s Bay, NZ wide and overseas labels to suit any palate.

A great place for a reunion or friendly catchup. Low lighting, however. Wait staff attentive. Meals were devine and well presented. Clean restrooms. Parking over the road.

Went to this place for dinner, We ordered a noodle dish that was in a broth. The broth had no flavour. We pointed this out to the waitress and the Chef who was on that night agreed with. Very disappointed as we had been there for morning tea and it was good.

This is a lovely cafe/restaurant with great outlook to ocean. Great on a fine day to sit outside and enjoy the afternoon sun. Dog friendly, they provide drink bowls. Good staff and great coffee.

Our waitress was so friendly and helpful even though she was very busy. Our breakfast was yummy and they were very flexible with the menu- nothing was too much trouble. A lovely bike ride from Napier city.

A cold night but a warm reception at this restaurant close to the water in Napier The waiter was courteous and knowledgable, with appropriate suggestions about entrees, mains and desserts. 4 for dinner and everyone was happy with their selection and the quality and quantity served I tried the "Chef's noodle bowl" served as a beef soup base with beef...
