“Great service, average food”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Great setting and fantastic waiter, but the food was a bit basic. The waiter really looked after us & was very attentive and thoughtful. The food was generally ok, but the mussels were gritty and not great.

All in all, great location, great service but average food.

“Deserves all the Awards it has won.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Usually when you walk into an award winning restaurant you expect to pay top dollar & wonder if the awards were now retrospective. Definately not the case, well priced top class food with award winning presentation and lovely views & setting. They ticked all our boxes, we will be back.

“OK”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Good menu and setting but actually pretty average. Had venison which was described as rare- but came well done. It was tasty unlike the Brie with the cheese plate which was rubbery and tasteless. Service again was average and the toilets really need someone to pay attention to them. I just hope the kitchen is better

“the only restaurant on the beach”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

It's amazing to me that this long stretch of amazing sandy beach has but one restaurant on it. Bluebiyou does not disappoint as your only option. View of surf and sand is one of the best in all of New Zealand. Ambience is simple and comfortable, as describes pretty much all of New Zealand. The chef here has his/her act together indeed. On the 2 visits (we are here for 5 days and have been back twice already), we enjoyed the pita and dips (plenty of both, enough for 2 people), Thai shrimp and beef salad (large enough to share and very yummy), and s tower of shrimp. All had great taste and were artistically presented. Full bar. Good wait staff although not over the top friendly. Very focused on their jobs. Other items coming out of the kitchen - fih and chips, salads, etc all looked appealing too. A touch pricey but it seems kiwis are used to paying top dollar to eat out.
