“Great local bar and restaraunt”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

great place to have a drink, take in the view of the harbour, and also watch the tourist and locals walking by. The food is tasty and the fish is fresh. A Fishermans plate is large enough for two.

“Follow that sound"”
Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

Staff are friendly
Food is ok- if you are looking for deep fried pub food something quick and easy then this is ok but the real food is next door at the Swiss cafe
Drinks- they have a broad range of international drinks available for us travelers
Music- the live music absolutely wonderful only bar with live music in Paihia we could hear the music from 35 south while having dinner there and followed the sound down the road, over all that's what took us down to this bar so it does have some great things going on there

Friendly staff nice for a snack and cold beer. The atmosphere was very good. Nice snacks and meals available. The location was excellent across the road form the beach and you could sit outside and enjoy the view.
