Four of us ate here, lunch was beautiful, the chicken cooked perfectly, it was so nice we came back with family the next night, and weren't disappointed. Service was great, great views, a real asset to Tutukaka

“Lovely & reasonably priced food, unique and interesting ambience”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Three of us went to lunch at Schnappa Rock. We ordered Mussels with Thai Red Curry Sauce to share, then I had the sausage and mash while two of my friends ordered other stuffs. For drinks I ordered Mango Smoothie and one of my friends ordered Mocktail. Overall we find the food to be delicious and of a good standard, and the prices surprisingly reasonable for such a high standard of European cuisine.

The ambience and décor are very interesting and unique. It made us feel that we are in the 'beach' area, but in a classy way. It is a very nice place for Whangarei residents to take a day trip to have beautiful lunch here and we plan to visit it again very soon!

“Great location atmosphere and food. Slow takeaway coffee. ”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Great atmosphere and lovely location, especially on outside tables overlooking the Marina. Staff friendly but very slow on takeaway coffees (15 minutes plus wait). I had coffee once and lunch twice, both times very enjoyable, though the lunch menu did not have as much variety as the dinner menu. Some of the lunch menu items, such as Thai Fishcakes, were starter sized portions which would have been fine if we'd known, but we didn't. So we ended up staying longer and ordering bread and hummus as well. Food was great, though the lunch menu was much more limited than the dinner one. Would highly recommend unless you are ordering takeaway coffees in a hurry, and with the caveat that it's worth making sure the lunch time options are one of the larger ones if you are remotely hungry.

“Quick Lunch”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Nice place, great location. very nice house Pinot Gris and draught Tiger Beer, not the cheapest but certainly not extortionate. Very quick and friendly service.
