Hi there, Thank you for your review. So happy that you enjoyed it. It's true about a longer wait for meals. We don't pre-cook our meals so it does take longer from fresh. Hope to see you again!

The food here is always dependable. Certainly the best restaurant in the general area, and whilst not up to Logan Brown standards, also not up there in price either. Entrees in the late teens, mains $30-38, and deserts similar to entrees. The wine list was...More

Topor... "The Polish Place"... claims to be the only Polish restaurant in New Zealand...and it may well be... and Plimmerton beach is certainly not over-blessed with dining options... But these are not the only reasons to go there. A cosy, old-fashioned atmosphere with great food...More
