We came back from a day trip to the Lake Waikaremoana and we didn't feel like doing cooking at our holiday house. So we decided to go to a restaurant. It was later than 8 p.m. and most of the restaurants in the harbour area were not very busy, so we choosed the Wharf Restaurant.
And this was a good decision. Many tables were occupied at this time and so we had not the feeling that we are too late. We ordered pork steak on a bed of salad with feta and pumpkin at the side and panfried fish on salad with kumara rosti. Both dishes were very tasty. We drank a bottle of Chardonnay from TW Wines from the Gisborne area. Awesome!
The ambience is very modern and the restaurant is furnished simply and clearly. The atmosphere matches the harbour area. We liked it. The staff were correct and not remarkably friendly. But we had a good dinner there after an active day!

I had their pork sirloin with salad greens, fried tomatoes, and feta cheese. Portions were adequate and the food was satisfactory. Shared a bottle of Hihi Gewurztraminer wine, which was very good.

We had breakfast here on a wonderfully sunny morning outside overlooking the marina. The service is friendly, the breakfasts were very nice and portion wise just enough. We are moving to the area soon and will definitely return.
