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.

Food and drink is great here. As is the service. Excellent location next to a great beach. Well worth the trip to Palm Beach. A place for the locals as well as visitors. And if the whitebait is on the menu - don’t hesitate -...we always order it. Deeee-licious 😋More

Brilliant from start to finish. The evening started with drinks outside, with great attentive service. We moved inside for dinner. The main meals, which we both happened to have, was the evening seafood special. It was outstanding. Incredibly well prepared, delicious and good portion sizes,...that would satisfy the hungriest of folk. In terms of value, I can say with comparative confidence that Arcadia is at the top. Trust you have the same experience we did.More

Lovely place, nice atmosphere. Had great oyster starter then snapper with roasted brussel sprouts. Snapper was delicious and perfectly cooked. Brussel sprouts were overcooked and tough.

Arcadia is ideally located next to Palm Beach and is a great place to visit for food and drink. We were staying a 5 minute walk away and ate here twice during our stay. It is on a roadside but as this is Waiheke, there’s...no traffic to interfere! The staff were all really pleasant and engaging. Billy, a recent recruit from Wakefield UK and a young French lad were all really knowledgeable of the menu and available to ask any questions. The menu offers a sufficient number of options, without being too big or complicated. We shared most of the starters and enjoyed pretty much every main between the four of us. There were empty plates and compliments offered by all to each and every meal. Well worth a visit, the pork belly was excellentMore

So nice to have a place like this now in Palm Beach. Layout and vibe is great. However, though our food was tasty, I do think it's pretty overpriced for what it is. And the staff need to pay more attention to their diners. Twice...it took us ages to get anyone's attention. Good but not great.More

We were here for a few days as part of our holiday from the UK in NZ. We went to this restaurant as a celebration of a milestone birthday, and it turned out to be a great place for it. I'm slightly reluctant to give...a restaurnat 5*, because that suggests a really outstanding meal, service and value-for-money. But I think this just qualifies, as it was a memorable experience. It probably doesn't sound terribly exciting as I describe it; starters of olives, wantons with crab etc, bruschetta with venison; then each had steak with cheese and chive croquettes, broccoli etc followed by ice/sorbet dessert. But it was good food, served in a friendly way, and deservedly busy.More

Ingredients very high quality, preparation and presentation top-notch, prices very reasonable, staff friendly and kind, ambience the right blend of sophisticated, cozy, and casual, with indoor and outdoor options. And right next to a gorgeous sandy beach.

Quick response to booking inquiry. Friendly welcome and service. Relaxed casual atmosphere. Clearly a favorite with locals. Good range of menu choice. Both our dishes were excellent - unpretentious, well cooked, nicely presented, and very tasty. This was the best value for money dinner venue...we have been to on the island.More

A great place for a middle-sized group to have a dinner. We had our own room separate from therestaurant. We were 16 people. We had a set 2 course menu and some even had a la carte.The staff were very accomodating. The appetiser platters were...of a generous portion.The mains were very tasty and a great choice of fish, meat or vergetarian. All washed down by a great choice of wine. We will be back.More

The restaurant took us by surprise, what we thought was a loud little beachside café was in fact a delightful little restaurant with seating outside or inside. The staff were all very friendly and service was great. Water tasted a little weird thought like sea...water? The food was very good and huge portions. I had fish and chips and surprisingly the fish didn't taste "fishy" which is a good thing :). Chicken burger was really good. Pork belly was succulent and the wagyu burger was one of the best.More

Birthday dinner, for a family of six, ranging from teenage to grandparents. Sitting outside on the terrace, with sun umbrellas, good music, and a gentle breeze, we had a delicious meal, excellent service, and a relaxed atmosphere. Each of us were happy with our meals,...with menu choices that meant something for everyone. Memories come from evenings like this.More

This is a wonderful local restaurant. As a resident of Palm Beach, it’s lovely to have a restaurant that has a menu that is eclectic and not too expensive. The owners are present so know what’s happening, the staff are great (because of the owners)....They choose great staff who remember who you are. I love this restaurant because the food is great but more importantly the owners and staff are outstanding .More
