We had the 'Waikare Inlet Oysters' natural as straters and they were fresh as. I had the 'Linguine ai Frutti di Mare' which was really tasty - sauce is oil base, not creamy or tomatoes. Hubby had 'Pan Seared Northland Market Fish - which was...Blue nose we were told. Auckland prices but as food was really good, no complaints.More

Came for lunch on a cool but sunny day, fabulous location. We decided on duck salad and a pizza to share. Unfortunately the waitress didn't tell us of the daily specials which was a little disappointing, on mentioning to her later she said she didn't...know them when we came in....at 12.45?? We thoroughly enjoyed our duck salad, absolutely beautiful flavours and the duck cooked to perfection. The pizza however was under cooked and soggy, shame because the mozzarella was divine. We will go back to see if they can do better, made a booking for Tuesday night and pre ordered their pork knuckle which we have heard is out of this world. Watch this space.More

Early week night dinner with 2 kids. Kids shared a pizza as a main and were impressed-amazing mozzarella and generous prosciutto. We all shared 3 entrees - burrata was sensational, kingfish sashimi good and duck leg salads also very nice. All packed with flavour. 2...adults shared the pork hock - it was delicious, a little more jus would have been nice but otherwise great. Great service and timing for meals. Easy online booking.More

This was my 3rd visit, you often expect additional visits to be less than inspiring, but on a quiet winters night they nailed it on all fronts, food, staff, drinks. Top class meal.

What a great place, good beers and wine and fresh food, again experienced wonderfully fresh oysters with the tuatara hazy PA beer and the taste of the island was amazing.

Hi, sorry for the delay in response. No sorry we are not open on Christmas day. It might be worth contact the local i-site ( 09-402 7345) they probably know more of what is open. Many Thanks
