We ate here for dinner one evening in December. The evening we went it was very wet but managed to get a table outside in the marquee. It was a chilly evening so the patio heaters and blankets were appreciated. We shared a starter of calamari and then I had salmon on risotto and my husband had the chowder served in a loaf. The food was lovely and we received very attentive service.

We really enjoyed our evening, the food and service was superb, staff were really helpful and the view was wonderful!! A birthday cake was required for this occasion and Kelly was very willing to organise - it was delicious so thankyou Kelly! We would definitely recommend to all our friends and family.

Located by the Waterfront, as it's name says, this restaurant deserves a visit. The entrees, mains and desserts are delicious. Especially loved the house special, Sea Food Chowder in home baked bread. Finger licking good! Service was also very attentive, quick and friendly without being pushy. Prices are in the mid range and well worth it.

We were out early (17:30 ish), after doing a bit of googling around for restaurants. No table reservation, but there was a few open tables. Very nice waitresses (Kiara? & Katri?)

I ordered rib-eye steak on mash potatoes, and it was very good. My better half had "the fish they caught today" - which was salmon on a very nice risotto. Both were nicely cooked and seasoned, and I really can't figure out to complain about anything :)

We're staying for 4 nights, so we're definitely going to go again. Maybe a bit later on as well as try out their wine-menu.

I had the fresh fish which was lovely. My husband had pumpkin & kumera soup which did taste abit different! Then followed by a very average steak.
Staff was friendly and the serving turnaround time was fine.
Still looking for a tasty dining experience in Paihai!
