Description: Parua Bay Tavern is nestled on the waterfront of the beautiful Whangarei Heads harbour under the majestic Mt. Aubrey and Whangarei Headland.With its own jetty and picturesque outlook the tavern is a favourite for lunch and dinners, groups and large functions whether downstairs on the covered dining deck, on the lovely lawn or upstairs in the function area.

Visited the Parua Bay Tavern with family and had a variety of meals between us. Food was overall very good and prices reasonable. Great setting, overlooking the water and not far out of Whangarei,

Service was pleasant and efficient. Well worth a visit if you are going out to Ocean Beach or even just for a drive and a lunch.

We enjoyed supper in the tavern. There was a great atmosphere especially as it was Quiz night. We didn't take part in the Quiz or stay until the end but it was fun trying to see if we knew the answers. We just had fish and chips to eat but it was nicely done and we enjoyed it greatly.

One of the best places for a leisurely weekend lunch..everyone is so friendly and the food is always excellent quality. Hardest decision is the great choice.
