Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Highly recommend this place for dinner! Nice atmosphere, friendly helpful staff and great service - despite being almost full. We both ordered the seafood chowder - one of the best Iv had! It was a generous portion, served with fresh toasted bread and was very...reasonably priced. Unfortunately we discovered this gem on our last night in the area or we would have gone back again.More

Great host. Lovely food. Service was friendly and the casual atmosphere was perfect for Mangonui. Will return for another meal and look forward to trying other dishes on the menu. The Wine and Whiskey bar next door is a great place to meet for pre-dinner...drinks. then for one for the road after. ;-)More

Fantastic food. Expected it to be mediocre at best but it was fantastic. My two nieces and I loved our meals. Two of us had the prawn curry. I rice and sauce alone were amazing and the huge number of beautifully cooked prawns a bonus.

We stayed in the area for a couple of days, and were recommended this place for lunch on the first day. We ended up going back several times for coffee, dinner, etc. It is in a very charming location overlooking the water, and the personnel...was absolutely lovely. The seafood chowder is to die for.More

Excellent dining experience 5 out of 5 and what a wonderful addition to Maunganui dining scene. Very nice fine dining touches with white linen , fresh flowers and a great menu and wine list to choose from. Our entree and mains were seafood inspired and...remarkable. The staff were very lovely and the ambience of the restaurant being right on the harbour in the little village was very special. We will be back when up this way . Thank youMore

This restaurant located in the Old Post Office is highly recommended - the menu and wine selection are wonderful. I recommend the seafood rissotto cooked with squid ink which tasted great. My partner was served the seared tuna fish on crispy potatoes which was tender...and beautifully cooked . We both enjoyed the pinot noir and sparkling resiling wines from Bannockburn.More

This restaurant has recently changed ownership and is definitely worth a visit… dinner tonight was great. Nice welcome, good service and great food with wine from the Remarkable winery. It will take time to rise up the ranking but this will be the number 1...spot in Mangonui once folks start submitting their reviews. 100% recommend.More

We have been popping up to Mangonui for a number of years and always visit the cafe which was originally known as the 1904 Cafe, then The Little Kitchen, and now it's called the Remarkable Cafe. Way back in 1904 it was the Mangonui Post...Office. Unfortunately, the cafe does not live up to its name and is very unremarkable. The scrambled eggs resembled and tasted like an over-cooked omelette. The bacon was under-cooked, translucent, and tasteless. The pancake breakfast was also most disappointing; one slice of flavourless bacon, soggy banana and watered-down maple syrup. I'd recommend sticking to the cabinet food at least then you see what you get.More
