If you’re looking for flavoursome food, great service and an unmatched vibe, this is the place to go in Paihia. I’ve been here three times over the last few months on trips up north and it was an absolute highlight for me.
We absolutely loved everything about Tipsy Oyster Tapas and Bar. The staff were helpful, attentive, friendly and thoroughly explained the different parts of the menu (as well as recommending how many dishes to order). The atmosphere is fun, bright and welcoming. The food was delicious....The chilli honey cauliflower and Sri Lankan tikka chicken were huge hits. We got the 12 oyster mixed platter and enjoyed trying all the different flavours. Highly recommend!!More
We dropped in for dinner on our last night in Paihia... wish we’d done it sooner, probably one of our best meals. Great atmosphere, super friendly staff, yummy tapas and awesome cocktails... in fact I had cocktail envy seeing others being served. Our plain eating...kids loved the waffle fries, they probably would have liked a few more simple options but they tried a few things.More
We had someone recommend this place, which was good because it is a bit off the beaten track. It was dog and kid-friendly and we instantly felt at home in the colourful setting. Our 14-year-old is not an adventurous eater but tried everything and loved...it. Can't wait to return again. 5 stars.More
Dining couldn’t be more casual in this cantina feeling restaurant in Paihia and it hits just the right note for holiday dining . Energetic wait and bar staff who are super friendly and helpful in guiding through this strongly Indian / Asian biased menu ....All served super quick making it great to take hungry family and the chilli is low on the heat scale so even easier to please everyone .
We had a great dinner and the summer sangria drink was really special . My peach Long Island iced tea lacked anything of the anticipated punch and the barman did try to remedy this but was unsuccessful in giving this its usual pizazz . Definitely appreciated the effort to sort out the $19 cocktail and won’t put me off going back and recommending to others .More
Wow, I don’t even know where to start...We’ve had an engagement party, several family lunches, and a bachelor and bachelorette party here, and we keep coming back for more. The food is superb, the oysters are fresh, the cocktails are to die for (both specialty...and classic), and the staff are friendly and incredibly accommodating - they even once opened an hour early just for us for a special event. If we didn’t live half an hour away, we’d eat here every night! If you visit anywhere in Paihia while you’re there, make it this place. Oh, and they’re dog friendly!!More
What a way to enjoy a summer’s evening 👌🏾This place has a cool vibe to it and even better a dog friendly restraunt which added to the awesome experience.
The service was top notch and food even better. The wagu beef tacos was a gem...and so was the fried chicken burger. Highly reccommend both. But make sure you kick the night off with a few cocktails coupled with a dozen of fresh oysters 🦪
Highly reccommend to anyone wanting great food with a side of good vibes to have a meal at Tipsy Oyster Tapas & BarMore
