Enjoyed our emails which were well priced. It is busy around meal times but you can enjoy the view of the Bay & have a drink while you wait.

Had dinner and breakfast at this lovely spot in Waihau Bay on our trip around East Cape. I had the pan-fried fish for dinner which was superb; helped no doubt by sitting outside enjoying the views. The owner asked us what time we wanted breakfast...More
