I had the fish which was really nice though with the chips was poorly presented. A salad bar doesn't make it worth the money.

My partner and I had dinner here after a long days travelling on the recommendation of our motel owner (and endorsed by several other locals). We were not disappointed; the staff were attentive, efficient and above all friendly. As we were not all that hungry my partner had two entrees rather than a main; Prawn & Avocado Cocktail plus Salmon 3 Ways while I had a Prawn Fettuccini with salad from the extensive salad bar. We were so impressed we made a booking for the following night's dinner on the spot. The following night we both enjoyed a perfect steak cooked to perfection. I will certainly be making this restaurant my "go to" next time I am in Kaitaia.

We went to the resto to have dinner, staff who attended to us was friendly setting was average. We ordered a seafood platter and a steak. Although I was very hungry, I did not even manage to eat my small serving of seafood platter as it was tasteless and my partners steak was the same. Food taste nothing it's just like chewing a cardboard and it's quite dear for the quality of food they served. We are never going back there again whenever we will be in the area again.

The waitress was very bubbly, helpful and accurate with her recommendations. I ordered a steak with Kumara chips was lovely and nice to have a healthy option. Was abit disappointed with the dessert strawberries, meringue with icecream as the meringue was overcooked. The waitress did let me know but I didn't realise how overcooked it was so I gave it too a friend to eat as it just tasted like sugar. I have had this before and when it's done well tastes beautiful. Also was surprised with the prices as they seem to have increased the cheapest main was $30. Still a nice ambience in the restaurant but with the price increases I would expect all dishes to be of a high standard which I felt the desserts let them down.

We called in here for an evening meal. Homemade chicken soup was the starter and it was a delicious clear chicken soup full of flavour. All you can eat salad bar included with the main course was excellent - fresh with a really good variety of different items. Our steaks were tender and cooked correctly. It was very welcoming and we had a lovely waitress (Wahinetoa)
