“Breakfast on the bay”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Great breakfasts with fantastic views. We had the full breakfast and lambs fry with bacon. Service was good for such a busy morning. Views were to die for.

“What a Shame!!!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Such a beautiful location...so such a shame that it really was let down by a long wait for food and a rather disappointing main. Entress great actually plentiful and yummy. We waited over half an hour though on a night that was busy.... but not booked out? The mains were not good and we waited nearly another hour for these? Not the best and pricey for what we received. The waiteress was pleasant but her clothing/uniform was filthy dirty? not something the management should allow we felt

“Amazing quality food”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

This is the second time we have been here.
January 1st 2014 we decided to go out for brunch while holidaying in Napier.

The kids played on the beach in full view of where we were sitting until our orders were taken, which was really relaxing for all of us.

The waitresses were a bit stretched as there was a few customers grumbling while waiting for orders to be taken.
More staff would of been appreciated.

we were served and after another extended amount of time our amazing brunch arrived.

If you appreciate free range eggs and quality fresh salads you will love this place.

My six year old son ordered the kids pancakes and was not disappointed, absolutely beautiful.

My four year old girl ordered the kids fish and chips and ate everything but the salad.

Husband ordered their big breakfast and everything including eggs were cooked to perfection, and good quality bacon.

I ordered a build your own breakfast and found their homemade hash browns stunning. My son and I finished my daughters salad, it was dressed beautifully with a nice balsamic and was a perfectly balanced salad and so fresh.

The prices were reasonable, we spent $59.00 for the four of us and we all had a beverage.

Amazing food was worth the wait :)

“Not as good as the first visit”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Went to dinner with a friend, ordered the scallops, I wouldn't call them scallops, they were the shape like a scallop, had no pink/orange part like a scallop, was a scallop look a like, for the price of the dinner expected real scallops. As for the coffee I think it is made by a machine were you press a button sent first coffee back it was yuck, got a second that was still the same, McDonalds make a better coffee and it's hand made by people

“Huge menu, good service, nice outloook”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

we were on way to the airport so this location was perfect. The place was pretty full but we found the service to be good. The menu was huge ( almost too much to choose from) but were pretty happy with everything we had. Not fine dining but good hearty fare in a nice environment. Would definitely go back to try the seafood chowder which looked superb.
