Great location, friendly staff with well timed food delivery. Meals are always superb with a good collection of vegetables and fair pricing. Having been recently to the top Auckland
tower restaurant Squids eats it for breakfast and its other colleagues that think a few scrappings of carrot and loquacious meat descriptions constitute food . Just nice...!

Our search for a Saturday night dinner in Whitianga town was filled by a local who strongly recommended Squid Bar & Restaurant - and what a great choice it was. It had tremendous local flavour, wonderful staff and reasonably fair prices.

The Mussel pot is a great favourite and it went well with a platter of Coromandel oysters and clams. The fish tacos and sesame fish another delight.

Divine.

We had delicious 3 courses with drinks and enjoyed the experience.
The restaurant was quiet, but was a cold night and still considered winter in this region.
The meals came at good timing and the service good.

Wouldn't go in cause I found the signboard quite kitschy. Luckily my friends insisted and I enjoyed a lovely dinner. Everything we had was well prepared and we rewarded ourselves after some long hikes.

Manager was despicable. I would never go there again. Bones found in seafood chowder. She took offence when we complained and told us that, that's just the way it is. Cannot be helped. Believe you me we have had many a chowder before today and have never struck this before.
