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.

Pleasant place, great view to watch the yachts and powerboats arrive and welcoming. Food is simple but good. We were able to take the dogs onto the outside deck

Good menu choices, good meal sizes and good value. Great spot on the edge of the harbour. Eat out on the deck or inside. Drinks are club prices. All in all - good value.

The first spot we visited in Opua for a meal. Great selection, very well priced, and a lovely view. Get in early on member night, it is packed to the rafters. Highly recommend this local gem....

Really good food and value for money. Menu choices are great. Have tried pretty much everything on the menu and never been disappointed. Very friendly. Try the pork ribs - really tasty and a big meal.

Upon arrival the place was very full so we got a table outside. The fact that it was so busy did not faze the bar staff or the kitchen staff. The drinks were well priced and the food delicious

Had a delightful evening last night playing in a team with a few locals on Thursday’s Quiz Night. The friendly atmosphere comes with good pub food at reasonable prices. Bus your own table - it’s a yacht club, not a restaurant! Oh, and we came...third out of about 8 teams, and learned a few new bits of trivia, including that the original name for Opua was “Newport.” Who knew?!More

I had several dinners (and beers) at the cruising club last week. I especially enjoyed the fish and chips and the roast pork. Burger was great too (and thick patty)! Tui Beer on tap as well. Can’t go wrong with that! Very nice people as...well, both staff and guests.More

We sailed into Opua from Fiji last Wednesday and after clearing in it was great to be welcomed into the Opua Cruising Club, and enjoy a couple of beers and some great food. The atmosphere in the club is really good, the food is great...and not expensive. Great beers too! Well worth going to!More

Great club house food. Fish and chips was a generous serving which made up for the slightly pricey bill. Self service as is normal for a club. Nice local feel. Lovely fireplace.
