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.

This was probably the worst Gluten Free Pizza I have ever had! For NZ$32, you do expect it to be actually cooked and taste ok. We ate one slice each and tossed the rest as so uncooked, the middle was still raw dough. It was...small and the sauce not any good. Disappointing, they should take it off the menu. We had heard good things so maybe the ordinary pizzas are great but for GF pizzas, Ostend Pizzeria is superb.More

A small little establishment right by Little Oneroa Beach. I think they are known for their woodfired oven pizzas but I ordered a Polenta Box which was tasty and filling. Service and prices were good. There are picnic tables nearby to have your meal. At...the time there were tons of birds and ducks waiting for a scrap of food to drop which was comical to watch.More

Hands down the most enjoyable takeaway meal I’ve had. We ordered the polenta box and Greek lamb. The olive bean and goats cheese combo was delicious. The lamb was cooked to perfection as was the pita bread. I wish they would set up in New...Plymouth, I’d be a regular!More

We grabbed two pizzas to have on the beach, they were excellent and the staff was super friendly. Pizzas came out quickly, would definitely recommend.

This restaurant seems to have closed. We checked the opening hours and website which said they were open, then placed an order via text as per the website instructions. We rceived no reply, but went to collect our order and found nothing there. I guess...they have closed down and not updated their website.More

Received very rude service from one of the staff working there, pushed their friends orders way in front of ours and spent ages out laughing and chatting with them by their car which meant our food took ages! When asking how much longer it would...be she replied rudely and then when our food was ready she just handed it to us without saying anything as if she was annoyed/angry at me. I reallly wanted to enjoy this dinner as the caravan is in a cool spot run by young people but unfortunately, our dinner was some what ruined by the rude service received. The food itself was yummy though.More

Absolutely yummy calzones and pizzas but the pita pockets have me hooked. I’d be bold enough to say - You will not get a lamb pita pocket this good anywhere else in NZ!

Dragonfired is a Waiheke Institution. The pizza's are excellent but the calzone is simply the best anywhere. Perhaps it's the fresh air, beautiful location, wood fire, great ingredients but the sum total is very special.

Tasty take-out pizzas at the beach. Limited range available but very delicious. We were looking for a building but these pizza's are sold from a food cart located right beside the beach. The first night we got there towards closing time and they had just...sold out, so don't leave it too late. The pizza's are very popular.More

We only discovered this place when visiting the beach. We checked the ratings and they were mostly good so we ordered a pizza that night. They also do pocket breads and calzones. The pizzas all start out as a Margherita and you pimp them up...by adding your own ingredients. Texting your order seemed the easiest which is what we did. The pizza was well-priced and we really enjoyed our selection. Contrary to one of the reviewers we found all the guys in 'hut' to be really friendly.More

Cooked to order at the cart by the beach and a surprising slick production. Delicious crispy base. The price is rather high for a small pizza, but we do keep going back.
