We visited twice in the space of a day owing to the close proximity to our accommodation. We'd been for breakfast before but it was our first visit for dinner so a good opportunity to check out the other menu options. Although we hadn't booked there were plenty of available tables (Sunday night), and we were seated right away. The... More

friendly efficient service and clean, warm facility and busy but cosy atmosphere on a cold and rainy day was just perfect for us. excellent cheese/snack board, and mains for Saturday lunch.

This is a popular restaurant with a great reputation but sadly on our visit we left feeling disappointed. The food was fine ( although my pork was over cooked and a little dry), but both our meals were not hot enough - possibly made more obvious because they were served on cold plates. Such a shame, and maybe just an... More

Nice cafe down on the waterfront, good coffee and a good range of cafe style food, you can choose from the cabinet or from a menu. We al enjoyed our breakfasts and felt it was very reasonably priced.We would all go back next time we visit Napier.

We ate here twice for dinner, as we enjoyed the first meal so much. The staff we all friendly and efficient and everything was clean and tidy. We had some delicious little tapas style plates and the lamb and fish mains were excellent.

The food here was pretty standard, serving your typical cafe food. It was so crowded that particular weekend I was there we barely got a seat. I still don't understand all the hype after having been there though. The only thing I'll commend is their amazingly friendly and accommodating staff. Pricey for portion.

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
