“Stunning setting, beautiful food.”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We were given a recommendation from a colleague for this restaurant. It was within walking distance of the Castaway resort where we stayed. The setting was fabulous, right on the beach, sadly no sunset that night, but the service and food made up for that. Make make fish superb and the dessert was truly memorable. Creme brûlée.
Vegetables came with the main which is unheard of now in NZ with mains even when you pay $40 for a main. Who would ever serve a main at home with no vegetables?
Thanks Waterline, wonderful evening. Good wine list as well.

“Tucked away”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Great little spot tucked away down a bumpy old driveway. We sat looking through some beautiful green vegetation out to a lovely sunset. Right on the beach. Food was good. Service was very good. No credit card facilities so take cash. Or in our case we went back the next day to pay( just gave them our names and resort name) very trusting. Good prices.
