“Nice, expensive, surly staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

Ate here as many people seem to, on way back to ferry. Had a group of 12 people, including kids.
Pizzas were good, but ordering was a bit of a trial. 3 backpackers working, all more interested in talking to each other that taking orders or making pizza. No eye contact, no charm. Felt that customers were a chore to them.
Pizzas themselves were good. Nice to simply build your own.
The calzone was good.
Tip : they only do pizza, but if you wanted some chips to pad it out, round the corner behind the shop and not very visible is a decent enough wee chip shop.

“Wood Fired Pizza on the Beach? Pretty Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

Because my trip to Waiheke was only for the day, we were heading back to the ferry and decided to stop at a beach outside of town. After taking some pictures and enjoying the view we returned to the parking lot and saw a little black tent (it's a lot like a food truck except it has a brick oven in it).
My friends and I split a pizza with artichokes, olives, and feta cheese. The wait was relatively short (about 15 minutes) and it was well worth it. We ate our pizza at one of the picnic tables just enjoying being in such a lovely place.
It was certainly not the best pizza I've ever had, but it was very good and was a fun Waiheke Island experience.

Some of the best Calzone ever tasted. They do Takeaways and everytime we go are always happy afterwards. Friendly staff with a great selection of food - makes you want it all!
