I decided to order lamb shanks off the menu, I enquired with the lady serving that this was two lamb shanks as that was what was stated on the menu, plus I was hungry. The lady serving assured me that it was. To my dismay...when the meal arrived there was only one lamb shank and the tinest one at that. It was full of fat and the meat was nearly non existence. A friend enquired on my behalf and asked where the other lamb shank was as it clearly says on the menu lamb shank's'. They were rude and said that the meal only comes with one and did not want to discuss it. There was no apology nothing. Very disappointed considering I paid $31.00.More

My friends had finished their roasts of the day and my fish and chips still had not arrived. A snappy waitress kept saying "soon." After an hour I demanded my money back. The chef then promised "Two minutes! Only two minutes!" I will never eat...there again.More

Good honest food, great atmosphere, very friendly! A very nice place to spend some time, and not just for the "oldies" either. Kids club, kids get colouring and Ipads, etc. A very warm welcome, is extended to all, with Darts, 8 Ball, Bowls, Karaoke, Live...Music, Dancing etc. Members get a Discount, but even without one, very reasonable prices!More

Run by the RSA services association so we drove by a couple of times thinking it was members only. Turned out it was open to all (members get a bit of a discount). We both had prawn cocktail and steaks, good honest fare, but very...decent and even without the discount very reasonable. We went on a week night so not many diners, advised a bit livelier at weekends.More

This Cafe is situated in the RSA, Mt Maunganui so has mostly older customers, so far as we can see. There is a good, light, fresh and clean atmosphere, well cooked food to order and friendly staff. The prices are very good value and it...should be recommended for groups. We have booked Christmas lunch there this year for our family group and fully expect it to be a great success.More

We recently attended a family birthday dinner at Munro's which is part of the very large Mt Maunganui RSA complex. The complex is impressive. The restaurant is great in that the kitchen staff were lovely and that there is a seperate function room. The food...however was average (dinner especially so, dessert was better) and we had to queue up to get little tokens to allow us access to the buffet. That was hopeless and the process needs to be improved somehow...we queued for ages...which cheapened the experience IMO. Enjoyed playing pool in the RSA itself. What a shame they allowed Karaoke instead of putting on some decent music. Would have happily had a dance if there had been something decent to dance to. Definitely a one off for us as we don't live there and would typically choose somewhere very different to drink and dine.More

A very pleasant experience at a nicely appointed restaurant within the bounds of the RSA at Mount Maunganui. The menu is varied with the fish and chips being my favourite.Perhaps the portions are a bit small and pricey. But fish tends to be that way...these days. They're coffee after is superb and while you dine you can have a alcoholic beverage. Members of the RSA get a reduced price on showing their card when ordering their meal.More
