We stopped for lunch, about 13:30 (1:30pm) there were mostly empty tables, yet it still took 10 minutes to even receive a menu, then another 15 to order drinks. The staff is friendly, though inattentive; fortunately we had time to wait. When our food arrived...More

Evening dining outside. The service from the wait staff a bit to relaxed for me and I am not fussy. The barstaff were more efficient. Food was nice. I'd go again for drinks and setting.

We went here twice due to the stunning location and comfortable couches on the deck. The seafood chowder was delicious. But there seemed to be a lot of things unavailable from their menu.

Description
Alongside is an exciting social space situated over the water in the stunning bay of islands. There is no place quite like it in Northland and we are proud to be different! While there is an overall laid back, casual feel to the huge decked area, its style and touch of class makes it the perfect place to get together with friends and family for a relaxed bite to eat and a drink to cool down in the beautiful winterless North. Take in the breath taking views, relax on some of our comfy loungers and soak in the great community feel that Paihia has on offer. We offer all day casual dining . Our menu is designed for sharing - small plates and boards boasting local seafood and fresh produce. Choose a drink to match from our extensive drinks list boasting a wide range of exciting wines to speciality rums and mouth-watering cocktails.
