Highly recommend ‘The Surfers Mistress’ Italian restaurant at Paraparaumu beach. The food was delicious, the menu was extensive. The restaurant had a lovely warm welcoming atmosphere, the staff were professional and obliging. We will definitely be returning.

Excellent; service, food and ambiance. Best Italian pasta I have eaten in a decade. Wine selection was reasonable at fair prices and so was the food. There were 6 of us and everyone had the same conclusions as to service, food, ambiance and wine.

Service was awesome! The food was delicious and I would have rated it a 5 but the fillet steak had gristle in it. Such a shame! Fish of the day, delicious! The entrees and desserts were fabulous. We booked for 5.30pm and needed to leave...by 6.45 due to another booking. We were happy with that but they managed to rearrange their tables so we could stay for dessert! Will definitely return!More

A truly outstanding meal for a party of five. Can’t say enough about this place, outstanding food and service! It was my first visit and it definately won’t be my last. Great ambience for the building they are in, and a very personable friendly staff...made this a dinner to remember.More

The four of us very much enjoy visiting The Surfer's Mistress. This weekend, we couldn't get in on Friday so delayed our visit til Saturday rather than take up another two bookings elsewhere. We were not disappointed – the service is exemplary, the organisation of...the restaurant is efficient and everything runs smoothly. The food is delicious and the wine list – I am lost for words – out of this world. I hesitate to share this because I fear we might not get in ever again!More

We recently enjoyed the “Eat like an Italian” night in Genoa. A really lively atmosphere including a fine violinist, delicious Genoese specialities and nice hospitality.

We have just had another excellent experience at The Surfers Mistress. The six of us thoroughly enjoyed their monthly “Taste of Italy” night. The food as normal was of a very high standard, the service prompt and friendly and a delicious selection of genuine Italian...wines that enhances the total experience! If you’re a visitor or local on the Kapiti Coast then don’t miss this restaurant!More
