Had lunch there with friends (spur of the moment) friendly efficient service casual relaxed atmosphere. I ordered the prawns with a side of chips, was totally amazed at the portion size they were huge, never seen that many prawns served up was expecting maybe six but there must have been 3times that amount. The other meals were excellent as well, a real thumbs up place.

It is said in the restaurant/cafe business that you only have to get three things right – the food; the service and the atmosphere, BUT above all of this you have to love your clients. At The Porch you experience that love from the moment you step through the door until the time you reluctantly leave.

Food – magnificent; fresh; great presentation; very good value.

Service – try beating from ordering to the serving our meals on a busy summer lunchtime in 14 minutes!

Atmosphere – the perfect beach resort cafe with a truly summer escape feeling.

The Porch has a comprehensive menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner that will cover most diners’ tastes. We started with a couple of glass of Pinot Gris ( they have an excellent wine list of NZ wines plus some imports and most wines are available by the glass or bottle), we enjoyed a Smoked Chicken Salad and a Fish and Chips with salad followed by a beautiful chocolate dessert all washed down with excellent coffee. An excellent lunch at a reasonable cost.

YES we certainly love dining at The Porch at Waihi Beach

We had dinner at The Porch and can honestly say that we had the best scallops ever. Our meals were delicious and the service was excellent.
