We waited for over an hour before we got our 2 mains. 1 main was steak and chips ( steak was over cooked and chips ok) 1 main was their Chermoula Fish (ok, not great and certinaly not Moroccan...

We had breakfast here last month and were impressed by the freshness of the food. The coffee was excellent too, but all of this was completely trumped by the location. What a spot! Uninterrupted views of the Pacific with loads to see. Boats of all sizes from kayaks to cruise liners and the odd helicopter buzzing around too. Fabulous!

We went to visit with a grabone voucher for dinner and ordered the seafood platter. It wasn't much seafood and definitely not worth the price tag. The place didn't feel particularly clean either. Lots of other positive reviews so maybe breakfast and lunch is much nicer. We definitely wouldn't hurry back.

Fresh and hot bacon and eggs on toast sitting on a deck over looking paihia meant this was our favorite place for breakfast while visiting recently.

Heading says it all. Nice setting on second story balcony above main Street but I found the food just okay. In particular the chicken nachos we had as an appetiser was average...mainly all kidney beans covered in sauce with the odd cube of chicken, all over corn chips. Next time I'd go somewhere else.
