Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Decided to book even though it was midweek and were so glad that we did as the place was buzzing. Even so the service was great, as was the food. Shared a starter as we thought it might be a wait for the main course...as it was busy, but they arrived in good time - very tasty. The chilli on the side of my plate added the "fire" I like and the yoghurt added balance. Those who don't like heat could have left it and there would still have been plenty of flavour. As Arnie would say, "I'll be back."More

Excellent ! We went as a group of 11, and as Sophie had recommended we let them ‘feed us’ for a price per head. Amazing value, the group really enjoyed getting to try all sorts of dishes, the timing and portions were perfect. Everything was...so fresh and tasty The lamb was my favourite! And some of us ordered dessert at the end as an extra, the Tiramisu was superb! My new favourite restaurant in WhangareiMore

Nice food and excellent selection for a vegetarian. However, beer is sold by the pint (with an appropriate charge) but the glass that came out was about 2/3s of a pint. When asked about this the server said this was a standard NZ pint. When...I go to other restaurants or bars and order a pint, I get a pint. This left an unfortunate bad taste ..... after an otherwise tasty meal. Truth in advertising please.More

Ok it has been a while, but "I'm back". The Minister of War (MOW) and I finally made it to this Greek-inspired Restaurant in the CBD district of Whangarei, and I am glad we did. Having had a long association with Greeks and their cuisine...and having traveled around Greece I went with an open mind. Firstly don't expect a Mediterranean view, the local cop shop will have to do, but that is not what we went there for. Decor - clean, functional and warm. Attendants - vibrant, helpful, attentive, and don't mind a chat. Alcohol - wine & beer on tap, not a huge selection of wine but those on offer hit the spot and all were well-priced, oh, and Ouzo. Now the important bit; food, a selection of small plates such as; ricotta-filled courgette flowers in tempura batter - superb, taramasalata and warm pita bread - delic, lamb meatballs - yep. I think you get the picture now. New inventions appear almost on a weekly basis. Only one thing missing - Baklava with a shot of Ouso and a strong black Greek coffee to finish up with.More

We shared a variety of plates which were all delicious. It was busy but the staff were super attentive and friendly which made for a great overall atmosphere. We will definitely return.
