“Great potential - pity about the result”
Reviewed February 2, 2010

Tairua is the gateway to the eastern side of the Coromandel peninsula - great location but it seems to lack any decent restaurants. Tairua landings seemed a good choice since it had a more diverse menu than the others - until we found out that not all items were available!

Having placed an order, the wait began . . . About an hour for meal that seemed tohave been micro-waved
