Good food at a reasonable price but noisy if crowded. Waitress wasn't able to advise me on what low alcohol beers were available.

Seafood chowder, runny and tasteless, fish and chips (beer battered ), batter nearly burnt and fish tasteless. Waitress lovely and service great but food amongst the worst we've had. They do a nice coffee though

Had dinner here with my sister and I couldn't fault one thing! Waitress was lovely and very attentive. Food was to die for! I had the pumpkin fettuccine and my sister had the chicken burger. Followed by a cheesecake and Creme brûlée for dessert! It's safe to say we rolled out of there gasping for breath due to bloating, but... More

It was recommended by the motel we stay by the Ohope Beach. It was a busy place for dinnerbut we felt strange that the other half of the facilities was not utilised. We picked cod for our main course. Presentation was elegant but we were disappointed somewhat with the over-cooked fish. Which led us to guess that the cook at... More

Having just bought a batch down the road from this restaurant we thought we would try it out. Seating inside and out but we chose the outside as a lovely sunny day. Grandson was with us so plenty of room for him to kick his ball about while we relaxed over drinks and lunch. A good variety of tasty offerings... More

Hui is nice and relaxed, it has a great beach atmosphere with friendly locals. The salmon salad or the chicken, bacon and brie burger are delicious. The staff are great and friendly. We had the platter for 4 people on one occasion and the selection of meats, dips, breads and cured veges were awesome. Either sit outside on the deck... More

All 3 courses were excellent, well presented and just enough. Only downside was the luke warm tap water but a bottle of sparkling water soon quelled. The service was poor, and although the wait staff were pleasant they seemed not to want to be there, and needed training. All in all Hui should have a 5 star but were let... More
