Zane's Grey's is the key location in Paihia. We stopped for an evening drink and snack. The breeze was fresh but we couldn't pass up the chance to be sitting on couches, right over the water, with an unobstructed view of the sea and surroundings....More

Enjoyed a really nice dinner here. The staff are fantastic and the views are just what you want when hanging out in the Bay of Islands. On the expensive side but worth it.

Good morning. Thanks for taking time to write the review. I've been around yesterday and let me note following: Our soft drinks are a post mix, nothing unusual. There's no false advertising whatsoever either. We offer other bottled refreshments which are listed on our menus....More
