“Excellent food”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We went in the school holidays on a lovely day so it was very busy at lunchtime. The staff seemed stressed out and a little short-staffed. The food came promptly though and was lovely. I had a burger which was generous, fresh and tasty with lots of delicious fries. Would definitely return. The only thing that makes 4 and not 5 star was that service was not friendly and welcoming, otherwise top café.

“A northland institution.”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

This is a great cafe, pub and restaurant. My family and I spent a number of evenings here and lunches. Although only one of a small number of eating location in the sleepy town of tutukaka marina, schnapper rock has good quality food, a quirky but funky decor and a relaxed atmosphere. Summer evenings here with a bottle of fine New Zealand white white sampling the local excellent seafood; a must.

Book ahead to get one of the larger tables near the street.
