We went here two nights on our visit. The location just across the road from Onetangi beach is perfect viewing and there are plenty of tables outside to take advantage of the view and the evening sun.

There is a good choice of beers - and note that Thursday 5-7 is happy hour. There was also a guy playing guitar and singing on the Thursday night and he was excellent - really good music but also great rapport with the audience.

On our second night we ate there and the food and service were very good. The burgers - lamb, pulled pork etc - had plenty of meat in them. The guy serving outside (the manager?) was especially on the ball.

As far as the bar staff are concerned, the young guy with black hair was very pleasant whereas the other guy with sandy coloured hair was a miserable and ignorant g*t. He needs to sort himself out or move over for someone who understands what good service means.

All in all though a great place to go and we thoroughly enjoyed both nights.

Excellent location on Onetangi beach. Has a good varied menu, but the burgers are the best! One of the more casual places to eat on Waiheke, to pop in when spending the day at the beach. The service is ok, sometimes we have found there's a noticeable gap of time between each person's food coming out, but this is never a big issue.

We arrived after the kitchen closed and they were kind enough to cook us a meal. Great coffee, good food and in an incredible location.

We left winter behind in the US and enjoyed an outdoor lunch upon arriving in NZ! Great place to bring a family. Love dining outside in the sun. Good food. You have to go inside and order at the counter; can bypass the main line to order from the bar (including espresso drinks). Service was not a problem, but if it had been a little better I may have gone with 5 stars.

Great beach front restaurant, cold beer, yummy salads, burgers, fries etc. Grab a table, head up to the counter and place your order. They give you a number that you place on your table and 5 to 10 minutes later fresh home cooked food appears delivered by delightful wait staff.

Good beer selection, cold glasses. Really a nice place.
