Had lunch with a friend whom we hadn't seen in years. The place was packed despite the late hour. Parking is no problem. Servers were young and quite attentive. The food was quite hip and good. Pricing is a bit on the high side though....More

Policy to ‘prepay’ when sitting outside? Think again! Expensive food and drinks. Friendly waiting staff, confused management. Great Haloumi Salad.

We went to Paper Moon (our local) to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. Both our meals were excellent, as was the wine we chose to accompany them. The menu is limited but reliable, with only the occasional new item, but very well presented. The service...More

Paper Moon is undisputedly Mairangi Bay's favourite dining and drinking spot. Be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or drinks into the evening, we're the place that pleases. Open seven days from 7:30am to 11pm, it's our passion to create the perfect occasion. We've had much praise heaped on us and we love it! Our simply named 'Beans and Bacon Breakfast' won us the Watties New Zealand Cafe of the Year title, and our Beef Wellington has customers raving and returning regularly. This is, of course, merely the tip of our culinary iceberg... Everyone loves a Happy Hour and ours is every day, from 3-6pm. So it's actually a Happy Three Hours. (We're good like that!) Bringing you house wines for $5.90, and beers for $6.90 makes us happy too! Feel special with a cocktail special on Wednesday nights - they're only $10. Our coffee is Allpress. Enough said. Except to say that our staff are actually trained on site and off by Allpress as well. We aim to please our many four-legged friends too here - water bowls outside ensure its not only the humans who enjoy some refreshment. Our staff love dogs, so you can be sure they'll be doted on and shown lots of love! And, with or without dog, it's always nice to take a wander to the beautiful beach we're blessed to have just a short walk down the road. We think one of our takeout Kapiti ice-creams compliments a beach walk nicely too... This is all good, we know, but don't take our word for it! Come and raise a glass with us soon at Paper Moon.
