This cafe presented me with the best cup of coffee I have had in NZ! The toast was made from bread baked on the island and was delicious. The staff we encountered was friendly and interactive. The poached eggs were done right!

Loved Solar- went for lunch with a girlfriend for my birthday and was amazed at the wonderful selection of food. Being vegetarian there were plenty of choices and the meal was very tasty and would go back again

Having recently spent Monday-Friday on Waiheke we had to wait until our last night before enjoying the well rated Solar Restaurant as they only open for evening dining Thursday - Saturday (?). The meal was worth the wait!

My choice of the chef's speciality dish of duck with an Asian twist was brilliant and my OH's hot smoked salmon didn't disappoint either. A glass of Syrah and a cider, both from Waiheke, accompanied well and a their chocolate brownie (gluten free) capped off a beautiful meal.

Good food, friendly service and laid back decor.

We had pre arranged a Sunday morning breakfast for 27 people with Sue and her team. For such a large group the presentation and taste of the food was top notch. Great good, coffee and juices and the view outstanding!! A large group like this would surely put any cafe under pressure but Solars Staff were awesome with everything.
