“Yummy Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Checked the Trip Advisor review before going to the restaurant and we were not disappointed. Three of us for dinner a couple of burgers which were great and the spare ribs "sampler" which the member of our party just got into and loved the sauce. Restaurant was busy when we went but service was more than acceptable.

“Go here hungry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Popped in for some fish and chips before the boat trip round the Bay and had plates piled high with several succulent pieces of fish and good chips. What a great meal and good value. Didn't have time to go back in the evening but passed by and it was full of customers enjoying themselves. A good sign anywhere. Would recommend.

“Great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Close to the centre of Paihia and a place with a real buzz about it. Staff are attentive and friendly, food was excellent, varied menu and good portions. Not a quiet and romantic dinner if that's what you want, but great holiday atmosphere and value for money. Good range of beers, great in the hot summer weather.
