Drinks on the deck followed by dinner in the aquarium, with arguably the best seat in the house, watching the sun go down and the ferries and tour boats come and go.

Absolutely amazing. I had my wedding reception here a few days ago and not only was the food for me delicious but the staff were helpful and friendly,very nice vibe, and leading upto the day the general manager had great communication with me she made sure mine and my new husbands reception was to our satisfaction. She is a beautiful person and she has a great team. Highly recommend Zane Greys without a doubt.

So nice to sit in comfy lounges & be propped up by pillows (& later blankets!) as we ate our nice meal, drank our cocktails & watched the sun go down over this beautiful view from Zane Grey’s.

Situated in a prime spot, right over the water, we had a great view of the Bay & Russell and we enjoyed it all.

Chowder soup with fresh bread, & Fish & Chips were our choices plus cocktails of the day!
All delicious, hot & filling.

Highly recommend this restaurant, a great place to eat & enjoy the scenery in the Bay of Islands at Paihia.
