Overall it is worth a visit for a casual coffee or lunch. It will move into new premises shortly. Not open for dinner, pity.

A good choice on the menu though service was a bit slow as we waited quite a while for our lunch order and we arrived when it wasn't busy. Food was tasty and coffee enjoyable

We love their hamburgers, eggs Benedict and seafood chowder. Oh wait they have great brownies and carrot cake. It's a great spot to grab a bite.

We were lucky to get served as it was closing time for the kitchen. Such a wild rainy day - we had some hot soup and chowder and great big mugs of hot chocolate which was very satisfying. If you drive down to the Marina...More

By our third visit our coffee orders were known by the friendly staff. Coffee was great, while sitting reading one of the freely available newspapers overlooking the marina. The menu is ample and should suit most people.

Good coffee and great location. The owner was friendly and engaging in conversation with us. Always pleasant to sit outside and enjoy the view of the busy marina.

Located in the heart of the newly expanded Opua Marina, the Marina Cafe is the perfect place to relax with a cup of coffee or glass of wine while enjoying a delicious meal from our varied menu. For a quick snack we also offer a selection of cabinet foods, including awesome home-made pies & sausage rolls and of course, freshly baked scones & muffins every morning.
