“seafood meal on a pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

The middle sized seafood pizza had more and better seafood than you get in most non pizza seafood meals. Just exquisite, juicy and tasty. Great location on waterfront with tables by window. Side salad also excellent and ample. Fantastic value for money.

“Gourmet Pizzas a Specialty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

On a nice day, the outdoor seating is a great way to enjoy the Waterfront. The views of the Mangonui Harbour are wonderful (just as good as the famous fish and chips around the corner and not all enclosed like that one). The pizzas are varied and tasty, and the rest of the menu is worthwhile, too.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

Really well cooked and presented food.
Menu not too extensive which means everything served is excellent well cooked with good balance of flavours.

“Disappointing- nice location but bad cooking fumes”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

Came for lunch with my wife; the service was slow and food average. Had seared calamari which was soaking with sour balsamic oil. The restuarant was full of cooking smells and fumes. They need to invest in a decent and noiseless extractor fan system. 2 mains, 2 coffees, 2 fruit drinks - the bill came to $59. Won't be going back.
