Good place for young kids have toys to keep them amused and will serve first.i have eaten here several times with my family and the standard of food and service remains high the pork belly and ribs are to die for .when we were there in August 13 it had just changed owners I hope the new owner keeps up the same high standard!

We had dinner at The Brigand this evening and enjoyed it very much. It was lovely to find somewhere so good that is open over winter.

The service was very friendly and attentive. We had the steak and the venison special, which were both delicious and reasonably priced. The dessert menu was extensive, which left us with a difficult choice! The two we chose (hot chocolate cake and lemon tart) were very tasty. I would definitely recommend stopping by here if you're in Takaka.

We stopped here on our way to Tata Beach, it was 2.30 but they were still serving lunch.

You enter the restaurant via a beautiful leafy courtyard which has seating areas which during warm weather would be lovely to sit out in.

The inside of the restaurant is just as appealing as the outside, with a lot of natural wood and comfortable seating areas & an open fire.

The menu is extensive and excellent, catering to all tastes. We had the shared tapas which was really enjoyable and very filling for two people, the children had nacho's from the kids menu, again the portions were of a good size and the food very enjoyable. Coffee was excellent.

The staff were extremely friendly and happy to offer suggestions for places to visit in the local area.

we hope to visit again for dinner during our holiday.

One of the few restaurants thats were open during the winter holidays.
We had an afternoon drink with some spring rolls, a huge delicious portion!
The court yard is a lovely spot, nice and sunny.
Because most restaurants were closed we decided to come back for dinner, which we don't regret. Also inside the restaurant is lovely. The menu has a lot of choice, especially the desserts.
We ordered a seafood dish which was lovely, nice flavors. It was nicely presented, a good portion and reasonably priced.
As a dessert we had a warm chocolate cake and a banana cake, both were served with ice cream and they were delicious.
Special thanks to the friendly staff!

value for money. Lunch from $20.00 and you get more than enough. Like a lot of NZ venues, there's more atmosphere outside than inside. Last time we had to pay extra for our vegies and salad. That was a bit disappointing, but overall very good!
