You cannot beat the view from the outdoor tables, food was tasty, drinks a wee bit expensive, overall one of the best values in Oneora...$10 Lunch special is the best deal on Waiheke!

There are only a few restaurants on the main street in Oneroa and therefore the restaurants must all feel the right to charge premium prices. Red crab is probably the best deal that you're going to get but keep in mind you're going to have to eat another meal soon as the portions are tiny.

The $10 fast lunch includes a small fist sized portion of whatever meat/vegetable you order plus a ball of rice. The $17 business lunch is the same but with different entree selections and also comes with an appetizer and a scoop of chocolate ice cream. The appetizer can literally be finished in two bites. My prawn main was good and my husband's chicken curry was so so. The oyster and samosa appetizer was probably the best part of the meal and the chocolate ice cream was enjoyable.

The views from the restaurant off the balcony looking into the Hauraki gulf were stunning.

If you just want a small snack, this place is a good deal. Otherwise, be prepared to order two portions per person.

We visited Waiheke Island for a day and visited this restaurant for lunch as it was recommended by a friend. The views looking onto the Oneroa Beach and the water are spectacular. Most of us took advantage of the $10 lunch menu and the food certainly didn't disappoint. The portion sizes were not particuarly large but for the price we paid, they are certainly good value for money. Other meals, such as the $17.50 business lunch and other choices from the a-la-carte menu are available. We enjoyed the friendly service and the staff were always smiling. This restaurant is recommended.
