Lovely setting with sea views. friendly professional staff. My only fault was with the food, I know it's fine dining but after three courses I was not satisfied. Felt the portions were a bit on the mean side

We used the restaurant for breakfast after an overnight stay in the Waterfront Hotel. The view was superb looking out to sea and over coastal New Plymouth. Buffet continental breakfast was available and looked to have a good range of choices. We chose from the breakfast menu to have cooked meals. These were ordered and delivered in good time, and...

A superb late Saturday lunch (only because they were fully booked for dinner) - perfectly cooked snapper in a delicious wine and leek bernaise - the best fish I've eaten in recent memory. Worth visiting NP for!
