Our booking at The Bushman's Hut cancelled without warning, so tried our luck at The Beachcomber. They could not have been more accommodating. We were lucky to get it!! The service was exceptional, and the food and wine very good indeed. Would we return? Yes....More

The service was impeccable and friendly at this restaurant. I couldn't rave about our server more. The food was reasonable and fresh. The big benefit of this restaurant is the salad bar. Alongside the mains you have free and unlimited access to salad. The salad...More

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.

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.
