If you want steak and chips or seafood with a good standard smorgasbord salad bar at good standard with great friendly service then this place will tick all the boxes. Unpretentious food of satisfying size.

Excellent service by front of house made to feel welcome and looked after. Unfortunately the quality of the food did not match the menu nor the prices.

Had a lovely fish meal at Beachcomber restaurant - beautiful groper cooked perfectly and delicious gelato to finish. Lovely friendly service. Would recommend highly if you are in Kaitaia. We were very pleasantly surprised to find such a high-quality restaurant in such a small town.

It’s not often the only restaurant in town is as good as this one is. The lack of competition is not a problem here and the food and service are easily comparable to what one would expect in a much bigger town. The standard menu...More
