Far North Restaurants - near Doubtless Bay

Hi there. We're travelling to Doubtless Bay for a week in March and would like to find out about dining in the area, from the best fish & chip shop through to fine dining. I can't seem to find anything on the internet! Any help is greatly appreciated. Cheers!

Hi, near Doubtless Bay is Mangonui, where most of the dining is, unless you want to drive to kaitaia, about a tenty minute drive- Mangonui has a great fish and chip shop and bar located over teh water, most locals head for the fish and chip shop just over teh road and up a bit for their takeaways, same fresh fish from the boats but bigger serves and cheaper prices, but- it doesn't have the lovely location. I have heard good things about a Thai restaurant located there, but they are only open in teh evenings- there is an excellent information centre in Doubtless bay they have a good website also- if you ghoogle it you should find them. We usually eat at The Beachcomber in Kaitaia, they have been going about 30 years and food is consistently good, but I wouldn't say outstanding. The Orana Motor Inn in Kaitaia also has a good restaurant.

Mangonui Fish & Chip shop is very well renowned and does good fish & chips

Also in Mangonui is the Waterfront Cafe which is very nice, and also a relatively new Thai restaurant.

In Coopers Beach there is an excellent place called Coopers Cafe, which does food as good as you will find anywhere in Northland - open daytime and evenings.

Also worth a visit for lunch is Karikari estate winery, which is on the peninsula just north of the main part of Doubtless Bay.
