Had two meals here during our stay at Tutukaka. Had the burger & chicken linguini. It's was amazing, good size portions, great price! The chips were in particular great, crispy & fluffy! The Scottish Lad working was great guy! Thanks for a great experience 🤘🏻

Good food, fish was very fresh. Not a huge selection but enough for every taste. Breakfast was good, although the bacon a little greasy. Staff very friendly.

It was my first lunch at Wahi-it took ages to choose between the entrees so we tried 3 and followed that with the pulled lamb and Yorkshire puddings on mushy peas. Something different but oh so tasty

Dinner was very enjoyable, the entree was of generous proportion which made the main difficult to finish, however very tasty. Staff were efficient, As we were full after two courses we choose not to have dessert but special coffees instead. Overall a very enjoyable meal.
