We were in Paihia for the day from a cruise ship, and after seeing all the sights we wanted to see, we settled in here for a bite to eat, some free wifi, and drinks. Good drinks, 2 kinds of wings - both good, and all the paper towels you needed to clean up after them!

We called in here for a late lunch and to dry off after getting absolutely drenched walking back from the Waitangi Treaty Grounds in torrential rain. Fortunately the waiter didn't mind us dripping wet raincoats over the backs of our chairs and soaking the seats with our very wet shorts. The food is what you would expect from a grill type restaurant - good burgers and ribs but don't go for the full rack of ribs unless you're extremely hungry. My husband, who has a healthy appetite, couldn't eat much more than half of his. Expensive mistake! . Good place to shelter from the rain though, and our waiter was attentive and good-humoured, which helps.

Steak 30$ 10mm thick, fatty. Sauce thin, Chardonnay was disgusting. More like glycol mix.
Sorry I don't like being negative, but I don't like spending good money on food worse than l could make my self. Clean it up guys.

My friends thoroughly enjoyed their rib special but, being the vegetarian i am, i was left with few choices and opted for the vegetarian patty...it was quite bland and very mushy...for the meat eaters, this is probably a great place but for anyone with a more selective palette, you might want to consider elsewhere.
