“Good food, nice view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

We have visited the place several times. The food is generally good and the view on Whangarei harbour is phantastic. Limited menu - which is good as you can be sure that the quality is good. The coffee leaves a bit to be desired. Amiable hosts.
Our visits have been in the time when we lived in Whangarei up to 2010 so things might have changed.

“Family celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

We had a large family dinner there to celebrate a milestone birthday. The staff were very accommodating with the menu and made special versions for the kids.
Very friendly service and excellent food. Everyone was very happy with their meal choices and most went for desert and coffee as well.
Splitting the bill at the end numerous ways was also not a problem for them!
Great views watching the boats come in as well.

“This is our local”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

We have dined here often, and I know a lot of other people who dine here. I have never heard a bad word - by far the best dining experience in Whangarei - perhaps in all of the North. Hard to beat - not one for the kids and lots of steps up for the infirm.

“What a fabulous evening meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

Fabulous food, atmosphere, service and not expensive. The Duck, mussels, rack of lamb were all so tasty that it was hard to say which was the best meal. Service was excellent from the very friendly staff. Thanks so much for making our evening so pleasant. Robyn
