We stopped in at the bar for a bit before going upstairs for a meal and were blown away at the price of the drinks. We got a beer and a wine for what we normally expect to pay just for a beer! We come from small town South Island so we were used to this kind of dining and were looking forward to our meals (steak and calamari). My calamari was perfectly cooked and my partner loved his steak. The vege/salad bar was brilliant. Not really somewhere you would go for a romantic evening out, but definitely the spot to go for decent, reasonably priced good kiwi food.

This restaurant is on a mezzanine floor above the Paihia ex.servicemen's club. We had a meal there twice during our stay in Paihia. On both occasions the food was hot, plentiful, tasty and the wait to receive it was minimal. On the first evening we had pork chops, ----- they were so large that there was little room on the plates for anything else !!!! Beautifully tender and full of flavour. There was a salad bar (with good variety) and a large selection of cooked vegetables to choose from. We didn't try the deserts, ----- we were too full to do so. The staff were friendly and well organised.
The drinks purchased from the club below were reasonably priced.
If you want 'fine dining' or a 'romantic atmosphere' this is NOT the restaurant for you. But for good wholesome food, cooked well, and plenty of it, this restaurant would be hard to beat.

Legends is in the Paihia ex-servicemens' club. The food is of a type and standard that one expects of such establishments. Our meals were well presented, hot and good quality though the dessert left a little to be desired. Mains come with self-service from the salad bar and hot vegetable servery.
Prices were slightly higher than we have found in similar places , though not great;y so.
We`arrived at a busy time when a large group were sitting down so had to wait a while, but not exceedingly so.
The lady who took our orders and whom we paid was pleasant and courteous even though extremely busy. It is self-service.
Bar prices are very reasonable!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. It certainly is not "fine dining" but well cooked, tasty and plentiful. The wines were very well priced by the glass as well. Would recommend for a family occasion as well.
