Description: This stunning vista provides a most relaxing and pleasurable experience in our upstairs bar area. ‘Hauraki’ means “Wind from the North’, but even on the outdoor deck upstairs you are well sheltered from any draughty squall or gentle zephyr. If there is a slight chill however the deck has its own fireplace to warm up your hands and feet. With luxurious booths for that seductive drink away from prying eyes, we also offer a private function spaces where you can celebrate that special occasion. A full bar service is available, as is a menu to suit your requirements be it a birthday, work function, or weekend celebration. We also have a plasma screen to view the current sporting event(s) and all you have to do is e-mail or phone us, tell us what you require and we’ll take care of the rest. You can find us by travelling through Takapuna toward Devonport on Lake Road, and now you can access Esmonde road from offramps from both the South and the North on SH1 and from the West over SH1, opening up Lone Star to all of the North Shore. Children and families, you are most welcome, and don’t forget to tell us if it’s your birthday!

The Lone Star cafe provided a pretty good menu, and it started out with a warm and pleasant welcome. Unfortunately there was a 55 minute space between ordering and eating, which is a bit long when they were not that busy. Drinking would have filled in the time,, but being the only driver, that was not an option.

The food was quite good when it finally arrived, but like so many places the coffee was served half cold, despite asking for it extra hot. They just don't listen.
I personally won't return.

If you like a steak this is the place to go... the staff were really good and the service was fast. The food was great and very well priced.

Fantastic range of well presented and tasting meals with fantastic friendly staff.
Good proportions of food to the extent I couldn't finish my desert after entrée and main :) Highly recommend.
