Description: "IT'S YOUR PLACE" ...That's what we like to say, so welcome to our place which is also your place. We enjoy the company of our local clientele who have become regulars at the restaurant and created a great community with whom we share our lives every day. It's the 'local' place to hang out for coffee and chats and a great place for meals all day. Our chefs are passionate about fresh food, prepared beautifully and served with style. We are committed to healthy and delicious food that satisfies all tastes, so whether it's our famously tender and tasty calamari, or our weekly fish dish specials, or a vegetarian delight, a hearty steak, or a divine dessert, we'll have something just for you. Our commitment to sustainability and environmental awareness is important to us, and we serve free range chicken, pork and eggs. We recycle everything we can from bottle tops (Kidney Kids Foundation fundraisers), to food waste (pigs, and compost). Our community,our tamariki (children) and the wider whanau (family) mean everything, and we support our local charities and services wherever and however, we can to support our community. So...Welcome...To your place.

We had a nice meal, and we loved the record placemats and the lovely selection of food... It is a nice place to catch a meal before going to the cinema, and the added bonus is that you can take your wine in with you to watch the movie..

This was our second visit to this cool little restaurant. The menu is super and service is sooo good. This time the Sirloin and Pork Belly was washed down with a Central Otago Pinot.

Great! thanks for that.
the Half Marathon weekend is always fun... did you come to the Street Party that night where we were still serving smiles with delish food (calamari wrapped mussels with garlic butter, prawns, swedish meatballs and waffles with strawberries and cream...) perfect food and happy team... shame about the torrential tropical downpour!!! HAha..still, Kerikeri turned on the atmosphere and the fun!
great to share our place with you!
