Have just been in Paihia and had a meal at Zane Greys - it was superb! The food we had (Mussels and Calamari) was fresh and very well presented and tasty. They have a great Wine List including a few local wines which were really nice too.

Very clean and tidy and the staff were excellent.

We saw this from across the street, I said "we have to go there" spoke to the cashier at the grocery store, she said it just opened last week and everyone is raving about it. We went there next and absolutely fell in love. Beautiful views, an aquarium, and a wonderful story about Zane Grey.

All in all, fresh and perfectly cooked seafood offered with interesting sounding but tasteless sauces served in a beautiful setting. Open only 6 weeks now, this restaurant is the combination of two old restaurants under new management. The new restaurant has an informal outdoor restaurant (with a menu very similar to the more formal side, with the addition of a burger and ribs). The appetizers looked great, so we thought we'd do an appetizer combo for dinner-- First, green-lipped mussels in "White Wine and Herbs Veloute". The mussels were huge, tender and flavorful by themselves. The broth was opaque green and essentially tasteless. The "Spicy salt and pepper calamari rings" were perfectly coated with a spicy hot breading and perfectly cooked and tender. The "sweet chili mayonnaise" was like mayo with a little ketchup and less flavorful than even French dressing. We asked for some tartar sauce, but have found more flavorful tartar sauce in a jar in the super market. The herb and garlic prawns were very good. The De Bortoli Shiraz was lovely. Service was attentive.

When it’s nice weather and you want to eat and drink outside, then this is the place to be! They have loads of space on their dock and huge loungers/ shade umbrellas with the most amazing view of the harbour. You order/pay at the bar and they bring everything over when it’s ready. A great choice of cocktails, beers and food. Will definitely be back on our next vacation.
