“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

The Marina Restaurant is centrally located, has a very pleasant atmosphere and the food is consistently good. Every mouthful is a pleasure, the service attentive and excellent. There is no rush, diners enjoy the ambience of the restaurant and the excellent choice of wine and food on offer.

“Our favourite restaurant in Gisborne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Always great meals, classic menu, great wine list and fantastic service. All this in a truly classic atmosphere, white linen, nice cutlery etc. If you are on a budget but still want a taste, go for the extremely well priced 2 course lunch deals.

“Quaint, cozy stop near centre town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

This is Gizzy's best!! French flavoured, attentive staff, and delicious food. More than usual French quantities, and excellent bread, oil, and choices.
Look out on 2 of Gizzy's rivers, share memories, and enjoy perfect food, just steps from all major attractions.
This is a special place, and costly enough for special occasions. Well worth the $$!!

“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

Undoubtedly the best restaurant in Gisborne and one that ranks up there with the top spots in the Capital too. We had a fantastic meal, traditional French food which transported us straight back to France. We chose the Chef's specials for the evening and were not disappointed. Leave room for dessert, they were amazing.
