“Waimarama treat”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Jarks is a great little resturant. Tried it for lunch recently and was more than happy with my choice. Friendly, welcoming staff , lovely food and good atmosphere. Jarks has built a good reputation in the area and the locals' appreciation is well founded. Recommend it for a nice, easy drive to the beach for a coffee or tasty lunch.

“Well worth the trip”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Belated Mother/Wifes Day lunch. 20-30 minutes easy drive to Waimarama a beautiful seaside village. The restaurant is warm, cosy, big windows, nice smiling welcome from Mine Host.
Service was professional, good range on the lunch menu, prices ok. I chose Steak my wife the Pasta, both were excellent, the steak the best Ive had in a long while.
Jarks is certainly on our "Go bak to" list

“Great service, good food, good value for money”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The owner really knows about providing excellent service.
Nothing is too much trouble and the quality of the meals is always excellent.
In winter, they have a fire going, which is wonderful.
It is worth the trip out to Waimarama.

For my 9 year old daughters birthday, she decorated the table without us even asking her to. It made my daughter feel very special.
It is also good for people with Coeliacs Disease as the owners have had training in how to ensure their food is suitable.
