The service is friendly and consistent, the food is always well presented and tasty and their seafood pizza is the best ever!

“Fantastic experience!”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

Dropped in on the off chance we could get a table - the restaurant was very busy which is always a good sign esp given the weather was less than ideal. The waitress was a bit run off her feet but the service was excellent. The food was also fanastic and their wine list contained a number of local wines that were also good

“Seafood Delight!”
Reviewed March 4, 2011

We stayed 3 nights in Mangonui, intending to try different eateries, but after our first night at Waterfront we just had to go back, and back again! A beautiful setting overlooking the harbour, and the "fish of the day" main just so fresh and well presented. On our third night we did a "tapas" style dinner with various entrees - utterly delicious.
Carnivors are well catered for too from the look of the steaks we saw, plus great looking pizzas.
Forget the so-called "world famous" fish and chips, and come here for a great experience.
