Kairoa is the culmination of our passion for food, beer and our original home country of New Zealand. The sweeping landscape with undulating hills, green pastures, lush rainforests, and snow-capped mountains is the perfect mix of rugged beauty and tranquility. Perfect harmony, just like a good beer.

The staff was so friendly. We were there for Sunday brunch and really enjoyed sitting on the rooftop patio. Nice sunny day, cool breeze and very comfortable with the table umbrella open. The food was filling and delicious. Nice way to spend a Sunday morning.

Lovely place, with attention to detail in all respects - not just the beer and food, but also the stylish decoration. The rooftop terrace is especially attractive: wide, beautiful, welcoming, and particularly conducive to enjoying San Diego's climate. Went with friends and will go back...More

The rooftop is the place to be! There are tables for eating (reserved) and a few places to sit (few tables and loungers with fire pits) if you are just hanging out for a beer/appetizers. I enjoy the ambiance of the rooftop as it overlooks...More

From the moment we stepped in Kairoa it felt GOOD. This brand new restaurant (something this area lacks) has great eye appeal and captured our attention. The menu has something for everyone, the food is unique, the beer awesome, the wine even better........it doesn't get...More
