Another great meal had in Mangonui, it may not look like it but behind the front doors of the Waterfront Cafe and Bar is a restaurant of the calibre of any large city establishment. Watching the chef preparing the plates last night was a real inspiration, everthing like clockwork and producing high class meals every time, well done. My beef fillet was cooked just as ordered and was very tender, my wife had the lamb which she enjoyed very much. The homemade gelato was also a great hit with us. Service overall was very good and the coffee was as hoped. Overall experience was a big plus for us. Thanks guys.

Good food, nice setting and polite friendly staff. Running in to some old friends there was an unexpected bonus.

My husband and I went for our last night on our Far North holiday. Lovely wait staff, very welcoming and a beautiful meal. We had the slow roasted pork belly and the herb crusted lamb.
We also had an entree which we shouldn't have had as the mains were substantial enough to enjoy on their own.

The Waterfront Cafe in Mangonui is our favourite in Doubtless Bay. Paul, the chef, consistently delivers the best, tastiest entrees and mains. His Eggs Benedict are the BEST we've ever had anywhere in the world.
Food surpasses Auckland quality with Far North prices.

I had 2 entrees which were both beautiful. The mains were a good size. Lovely meal with a good range. Had the Brandy Snaps to take away.
