Alongside has always been an enigma. Unbeatable location, decor and suntrap, that's where it ends. I haven't been for a long time but as a local, I'm trying again. Today, hesitantly, I ordered a double shot flat white. I drink at least one coffee out,...More

We had dinner here. It was great! The views were amazing. It is so relaxing sitting on the water. The staff were great. The waiter brought out toys for our daughter to play with. Great food and drinks.

Description
Alongside is an exciting social space situated over the water in the stunning bay of islands. There is no place quite like it in Northland and we are proud to be different! While there is an overall laid back, casual feel to the huge decked area, its style and touch of class makes it the perfect place to get together with friends and family for a relaxed bite to eat and a drink to cool down in the beautiful winterless North. Take in the breath taking views, relax on some of our comfy loungers and soak in the great community feel that Paihia has on offer. We offer all day casual dining . Our menu is designed for sharing - small plates and boards boasting local seafood and fresh produce. Choose a drink to match from our extensive drinks list boasting a wide range of exciting wines to speciality rums and mouth-watering cocktails.
