Today five of us went for lunch. Four ordered the seafood chowder. Unfortunately today's chowder was laced with garlic and rather disappointing. None of us ate more than half. When we told the duty manager the chowder was not up to standard he became very...defensive he replied no one else has complained and did I at least enjoy the bread!!!More
What a great place this turned out to be. Great location by the water, awesome interior with 3 fish tanks to keep our two little kids entertained. Service was A+ fast delivery and super friendly staff and the food was excellent!
Would happily go back...there with the family again. Thanks for a great nightMore
was very cold room our group all very cold had to wear jackets. Manager on duty told one of us off for failing to order a drink while waitress was at our table. We were shocked. Would never go back again.
When we ordered, we were told it was a ten min wait for food, how many times have you heard that before, and then its 30 mins, well not here, it was out in ten minutes,
The fish was fresh, cooked perfectly, and nothing was...expensive.
No issue tying up our horses to the railing outsideMore
Regular visitors to this great restaurant and the reason for that is the quality of the seafood, the attentive service & the setting with its combination of inside and outside options. The restaurant caters for groups and families. Popular all year round so reservations are...recommended. The John Dory and Snapper in plain butter is fantastic It's all about the wonderful NZ seafood.More
Lunch and beer with a couple of mates.
Beautiful spot over the water.
Amazing and huge platter and ice cold beer.
Even got to see a stingray right by the restaurant.
Pretty cool spot so close to town but felt like we were miles away...from the city.More
As usual this time of year the family met and ate at Swashbucklers.
About 15 of us....all eating and sharing food and good humour.
After disastrous chowders throughout our trip through Hawkes Bay and Tauranga we struck the usual gold with Swashies chowder.
The real...thing. You can see the seafood before you taste it, plenty of it with a huge variety. And most of all it’s gorgeous!More
Haven't been here for a while but after last nights meal I am asking myself why not.
Food and service were excellent and for a fish restaurant the steak was excellent. Very fresh oysters, wonderful calamari, melt in your mouth eye fillet, scampi - great....Not only all of the things you want in a dining experience but pricing is very fair.
Great atmosphere and fun staff. Can't wait to be back.More
