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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Based on other reviews we decided to have dinner here. Staff friendly, atmosphere was OK, not a fan of big TV's in restaurants. Meal was good but nothing to rave about.

Conned by reviews that I find hard to believe are genuine. Lovely people but very average at best in all other respects. Walk around Owera and you will see plenty of busy, thriving restaurants and bars - and then there is the S & A....Chowder 3/10. $9 for small glass of beer. Fish and chips 7/10 but drowned in garlic butter. Sometime average is ok but not when you claim to be #1 in Orewa!More

In Orewa for the father-in-law's 80th, booked for dinner here at 7.30pm on Saturday evening. Table of ten ages 17-84. Great night out, greeted by some friendly locals on our way in like we were old friends! Casual vibe, pretty busy when we arrived but...emptied out early. A charming and accommodating wait person sorry didn't catch the name but up for some banter. The food was great and serving sizes challenging for even our hungry young adults. Well priced drinks. Don't know the total as it was the birthday boy's shout but highly recommended for a fun casual night out if you're in Orewa- which you should be, it's well worth the short drive up the motorway from Auckland.More
