This place just seems like brits abroad. We walked in, went to take a seat, then decided to go down the road to the boathouse where the service and food is far superior!

The freshest local eggs made the eggs Benedict. Exceptional care with the coffees- a full range of types. Accommodated the vegetarian in the group who wanted eggs Florentine although it wasn't on the menu. Vegetarian and vegan menu items.

But the service lacked a lot. This is one of the only places on Waiheke that is not related to a vineyard where you can have lunch on a Saturday. Unfortunately the service is pretty bad so the only thing to justify the two stars is the half decent food. Tables were sticky and the place just lacked a lot.

Visited one morning just as it opened for breakfast. A long time since we have come across such unwelcoming and sour staff. Food and coffee was OK but the staff need to go find jobs they enjoy.

We have loved this place and in fact it was one of our favorite. Unfortunately it has gone really downhill. Patchy service and the menu was much reduced. The staff looked stressed and overall it has gone downhill. Such a shame as such a great location. Still a good place for a drink though.

Had a delicious lunch here with a fantastic view. I went for the falafel burger but there were plenty other options for the meat eater. The burger was huge and with the chips filled me up adequately until dinner time. There was a good choice of snacks and drinks for those who wanted to take away and sit on the... More

As we were being shown around Waiheke, our host pointed out this place andsaid it was good. So we went back later and he was RIGHT! Just across from Onetangi Beach, the place has indoor and outdoor seating. You go up to the order counter, tell 'em what you want, they give you a flag thingie with a number on... More

We went here two nights on our visit. The location just across the road from Onetangi beach is perfect viewing and there are plenty of tables outside to take advantage of the view and the evening sun. There is a good choice of beers - and note that Thursday 5-7 is happy hour. There was also a guy playing guitar... More

Excellent location on Onetangi beach. Has a good varied menu, but the burgers are the best! One of the more casual places to eat on Waiheke, to pop in when spending the day at the beach. The service is ok, sometimes we have found there's a noticeable gap of time between each person's food coming out, but this is never... More
