Whilst on holiday in Pahia, my partner and I decide to dine at Lip's cafe for dinner on Waitangi Day. We had been there before on our last visit, 2 years prior and we both really enjoyed it. so this time we decided to go again. Big Mistake. They were not overly busy. There were a few customers but not hectic. The waitress, who should really retire was getting confused and was running off her feet. There was another girl but she disappeared as quickly as she appeared! This poor lady really needed some help. After waiting approx. 15 mins, we eventually got our menus. We ordered oysters and a chicken salad for entrees. About 10 mins later, the waitress comes back and informs us that the oysters didn't arrive and there were no chicken. So we ordered alternatives. I ordered the beef salad. When I eventually got my entree, the beef was still living, mooing and running around the paddock!! I was appalled! My partner ordered steak which he enjoyed however, I ordered the pork roast with all the trimmings. NO NO NO!! To my horror, it was large chunks of pork on large bed of rocket lettuce, and mash potato and very little of anything else!! This was not a roast!! Trying to get the attention of the waitress was like pulling teeth. She was too busy turning potential customers away and telling them to return in a hour!
However, we did enjoy the evenings entertainment provided but other diners who were also in the same situation as us. Never again!!
