Top quality food, great atmosphere, superb service; an overall fantastic experience. Such wonderful flavours, presentation was outstanding and the friendly service topped it all off. Best value for money in Northland. We will definitely go back.

Decided to go for Sunday roast there, good choice! It's not really a restaurant, so don't expect waiters, yet their food is fresh and tasty and deserts delicious!

In the RSA Club; staff were very pleasant - $21 for a Roast Beef and $8 for a range of (nice) puddings - nothing remarkable but good plain food in a busy cafe type setting...great for Sunday lunch!

Lots of Veges and salads to choose from for you to add to your main meal. I enjoyed these... More

The three of us enjoyed the Terakihi and chips,generous serving well cooked with vegetable and salad bar to choose from. Not haute cuisine but a well presented meal at a reasonable price in Club surroundings.

We came here on a Monday evening to eat with no idea of what to expect. There were lots of patrons out for a social evening, playing pool and drinking at the bar and there was a raffle in progress. It was a relaxed atmosphere all round. The restaurant was located inside the premises of the local RSA club. The... More
