We came here for dinner and then came back a few days later for breakfast. About half the menu is vegetarian, and lots of choices. My husband had the Argentian Soup that is the chef's Mum's recipe and it was well flavoured and delicious. I had the vegetarian nachos, which were good. I'm glad I got the small size. We both had a glass of wine, and at Happy Hour, each glass was $6.

For breakfast we both had mushrooms on toast, which were lovely.

The staff are great here, so helpful and friendly.

The restaurant is solar powered, and there is plenty of seating, and a nice atmosphere. If you are visiting Oneroa, give it a try!

We visited from California and enjoyed a yummy breakfast and coffee. The free wifi was wonderful so we could connect with our kids back home. The atmosphere is earthy-hippie and relaxed. It's hard to go wrong anywhere on this island!

Had a lazy Sunday breakfast here & it was amazing.
Food is great & fantastic value, big portions.
They make fresh juice which is delicious & the outside seating area is very peaceful.
Was recommended by a local & didn't disappoint.

Excellent Chai Latte, average Flat White. Perfectly poached eggs, undercooked bacon. I was looking forward to the deep fried hash, but got deep fried mash

Booked ahead of our visit for breakfast.. a prompt response and confirmation was a great start to the experience of interacting with the Solar Staff. An extra sunny spot above the entry to the village is a vantage point worth checking out.. either from the comfort of the large dining area or as the day warms up .. out on the deck area.When we arrived nothing was a problem... great food .. especially the hummus & tomatoe combination....according to my friends!! Coffees of all sorts were no problem throughout our visit and most impressively the whole table had been mapped by the waiting staff so paying individually was a breeze.. Thanks again for make our breakfast a breeze.
