“What a great experience!”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

We recently made a stop at Mondos over the long weekend, and what an oasis. The food was fantastic, the classics and other dishes with an endearing twist, and the service was just great. The staff and management were extremely busy and yet professional, efficient and still with a welcoming warmth. The setting at the Town Basin is quite special.

This place rivals many a cafe in Auckland and was just what we needed. I would HIGHLY recommend it.

“Lunch on the quay”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

Sad thing is we went back, after discussing with the staff about the lack of food quality and presentation. My meal was over cooked and my wife's under cooked. We are in the hospitality business in the Bay Of Islands, and often have recommended to our guests to stop into the town basin for a meal. The game has to be lifted guys. Service was there if you waved your hands about, but the meals were disappointing. No flair what so ever in the 'cabinet' meal choice.

“diasappointing”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

Has this place changed ownership? All our previous visits were enjoyable with good food coffee and service. This time non exsistent service empty tables stiil cluttered after 15 minutes and it wasn;t even busy burnt coffee and greasy tasteless food. Certainly not like previous experiences.
Time to try somewhere else next time we are in Whangarei.

“Waste of time”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

While ordering the mondo's breakfast I specified no mushrooms because I'm allergic, not only did I get mushrooms but when I asked that they remove them, the server rolled his eyes at me and I watched him just push them in the bin with a fork leaving the mushroom sauce and juice still covering the rest of the food. The toast was thick and dry, sausage tasted old, inedible.
Our table still had spilled drink and crusts on the table from the people before us, it took 10 minutes for someone to wipe down the table after we had asked 3 times. The girl who took our order, mixed it up with two other orders.
With the prices they charge we expected nicer food and actual service, the servers clearly didn't want to be there ..the feeling was mutual. Entire experience was a complete disappointment
