The food at this restaurant is superb. Four of us all agreed that each of our dinners was excellent with all aspects flavoursome and complimentary. And the view out the window as the sun set slowly over the water just added to the evening. Waiters were attentive and humourous without being a pain.

The fresh Snapper was out of this world! Service excellent. The fresh salads were divine. Good wine choices as well.

Booked for a small family celebration. Superb table right by the window, virtually had a room on our own as other diners were together on the other side. Lovely view of the harbour. Superb food and great waiting staff. Definitely a night to remember.

Nice welcome and attention to detail, they had made the effort to remember it was our anniversary.

We had the best window seat in the house. The meal was exquisite, and rates as one of the most memorable 3 course meals I've personally ever eaten.

We have just had a delicious meal at The Gables, sitting outside on the seashore watching the sunset. The atmosphere is relaxed, but the food delectable. We all had the Northland menu - a good choice. We are all feeling full and content.
We crossed on the passenger ferry from Paihia - very easy.
