Beautiful spot. We went twice. First time we kayaked up the river and walked in soaking wet and rough looking. They weren’t worried, welcomed us and the food was great. Called back with friends for a long lunch the next day and had a great...time. Tofu was very tasty, fish cakes as well. Calamari was chewy so a touch unsure there but the pizzas were on point. An awesome setting, will be back.More

We popped in on our way down the coast. Got a table outside in the beautiful garden, lots of space for the wee ones to run around. We got a gluten free pizza, some chips and wine (which was very well priced). Would highly reccomend,...like visiting a vineyard with the setting.More

Awesome outside area where we where ushered out to upon our arrival. It was a busy day and all tables where full. The waitresses were efficient but not overly friendly, I had asked a blonde waitresses to turn the music down please and I pretty...sure she didn't. The other waitress that I asked did which I appreciated, she was polite and very helpful. The food was really yum, I had the squid salad and a green goddess pizza, all was delicious 😋. This was a pleasant dinning experience with food that was fresh and even though it was busy there was no long wait. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others 😍More

We just spent a week long holiday all round the coromandel and this place by far had the tastiest food we ate and we ate at some very nice restraunts. The beef sandwich is top 2 ive eaten anywhere in the world, simple and done...perfectly! I had a couple slices of my wifes pizza and ive never really been a big fan of fish on pizza but holy smokes! Unbelievablely delicious, super fresh seafood and the base was nice and crispy from the woodfire. The outdoor seating under the kiwifruit trees is so nice too, we wish we had a chance to come back on this trip but will have to wait until next time. 150% recommend stopping here for a meal and a drink.More

Great potential but really need to sort out the time waits. There was a sign saying 45 mins to an hour wait which we thought okay it is what it is But meal came out after 1 hour 20 mins. The food was nice and...saved the day for them. But after such a long wait we were so hungry we scoffed it down. The couple at the table next door were there before us and waited 1 hour 30 just for 2 Pizzas. Great surroundings, good music and I appreciate how hard it is to from a small beach restaurant to cater for the summer crowds. But wait time crazy. Roa e tatara ana mo te kai i konei.More

Haven’t even got our food yet…however felt compelled to write this. The staff are lovely. The food looks delicious. We had a booking for 7pm and literally ordered straight away. It was busy when we arrived. But lots of tables waiting on food. We’re quite...close to the kitchen and can see meals coming our sporadically… lots of complaints to the poor lovely staff about the wait. My husband went in and suddenly there is a sign saying and hour wait on food… it wasn’t there when we arrived. The chef has absolutely no urgency about getting meals out. Just plodding around the kitchen while the staff deal with complaints. Now I’m getting hangry… food looks amazing - chef needs a rocket!!More

We came as a family of four and the food was so good we booked for the following night too. Vaccine pass scanning was good, service smooth even though they were full and busy; a really good atmosphere and a great spot.

The food is very good, of a great standard. But the meal wait time both this year and last year was over 2 hours which is unacceptable when charging Auckland prices. We hope to go back when we hear they have got their kitchen and...service sorted.More
