Stopped here and had some ice drinks while enjoying the view at the deck. The smoothies and milkshakes were the best we have had. Service was really efficient. Will definitely be back.

Stopped for breakfast and bacon came cooked only on one side. I asked if they could cook other side. Never had that before in my long life. Bacon came back barely cooked 2nd time and I could not eat it.

Good place for a reliable lunch/brunch when in Tairua. The chowder was excellent and the burger hit the spot.

We went for a light breakfast and then returned later for lunch the same day. The service was very good and the meals excellent value. Breakfast was a light tropical fare but included everything we needed. We shared the roasted chicken salad and mussel fritters...between the two of us, it was delicious. We sat outside, beautiful day with a light breeze but there are seats inside as well. Pity they’re not open for dinner, we probably would have gone back the same day - we of course were on holiday.More
