My husband and I went here on Valentine's Day and had a delicious meal. The Tempura oysters were some of the best we've ever taste and my seafood risotto was divine. The most expensive meal we've had in NZ but worth the splurge.

We ate dinner at Argo twice during our short stay in Whangamata, once as a couple and once as a foursome.

Each time, the service and advice was exceptional, the staff are knowledgeable and helpful. In all, we ate steak, chicken, scallops and pork loin and every dish was cooked to perfection. Desserts were excellent too.

Not the cheapest place in town but the best restaurant we've eaten in during our four trips to New Zealand.

Have only visited here for my morning coffee since the new owners have taken over and re branded.

Love the la la coffee, great counter food. Sunny outdoor area and friendly staff.

A favourite for the morning stroll

Was recommended to come by the lady we rented our accommodation from, thankfully, as we would not have come across the restaurant as it is not in town. Only wished we gone back the second night as apposed to trying elsewhere. The place was busy for a mid week night, but the service was very good. Our waitress was super helpful about the menu and activities to do in the area. Living in wellington and used to eating in a wide viraty of high calibre places, we were totally impressed in all manners. Both flavours and presentation were well thought after and regarded by the chefs. We shared a dessert, the cheesecake, which I must say was too pretty to eat… It tasted sublime too. We left great comments in our visitor book of our experience to share the secret with other visitors to Whangamata.

We went to Argo's as a large group for breakfast the morning after a friends wedding and not only was the coffee great, the scrambled eggs were amazing!

Having been to a number of other places in Whangamata and putting up with terrible service, meals arriving 20 minutes apart (ordered at the same time) and some pretty average food, Argo's are now the go to default place in Whangamata for us.
