“Good bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2012

Nice bar and lovely staff. The rum and coke was 3/4 rum and 1/4 coke, haha great value for money but hard to drink! The fish and chips were cooked well and the bar has lovely varnished wooden tables and chairs giving it a really nice casual feel.

“Good Bar. Good Music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 29, 2012

Great little bar with excellent view over the waterfront.
Only bar in Paihia that sells Guinness. Friendly staff and locals.
Food is adequate pub grub if you want something different try the Swiss Cafe next door.
I have used this bar often and never been disappointed.
