Fabulous place

4 of us were in Kerikeri for the day and were undecided about where to go. We had been to Ake Ake the week prior and we all decided that we wanted to go to another venue and this place was recommended by one of our group. The place was not busy but the service whilst a bit slow on... read more

The last two visits to this place I have been disappointed in the food, When with some friends serval months ago and the service and food was very poor, I had a steak which was placed on top of large chips and appeared boiled rather than fried, my last visit I had a beef hamburger which was ok, however lacked...

The fabulous location is probably the only thing which will tempt me back. Waterfront eateries are scarce in Kerikeri and it's a shame that yet again we had bland mediocre food. So disappointing after a very long wait. Salad and calamari isn't complicated. The waiting staff were lovely and obliging doing their best, however, clearing tables promptly helps keep the... More

A quaint little place with lovely outdoor seating. Enjoyed a beer under a large tree with the river right in front of us.

It was a delight it worked out so well against the bad reviews. The service was good no problems. The food was nice. There was no... More

It was a hot day and the only breeze we could find was under the shade of some trees. Our server brought out our ginger beers and then our lunch. My burger was scrumptious. My friend loved her omelette. It is a stones throw from the mission station and the dock.

We ate under the trees outside by the river- only had entrée- prawns cooked beautifully. Relaxed atmosphere. Staff was a bit indifferent... Forgot our water on a hot evening. Didn't feel we were a valued customer....

After reading some of the reviews, we were a bit dubious about dining here, but it was very pleasant. We visited on January 4th, which was a public holiday. We had no booking, but despite being busy, they found a table for 3 of us straight away. The service was reasonably good, given that there were only two waitresses working... More

This restaurant is in a fab location with an amazing view. The food was poor and unappetizing. My potato hash was chopped boiled potatoes with fatty undercooked bacon and spring onions.
