Had a very enjoyable dinner at Squids. Service was good and the food was excellent. We had a small wait for a seat as we had not booked - but a short walk around the waterfront and back - our table was ready.

Go there just for the seafood chowder. It is the best you will ever have and excellent value at $14. We went for lunch. Friendly service and helpful staff.

We wandered into Squids for lunch at the suggestion of staff at our resort. It was a wet and windy Monday and we were warmly greeted by the waitress on duty. She was friendly and interested without being fussy and her attentive service really did make our visit - I just wish I could remember her name!

I enjoyed the bouillabaisse and my husband chose the green lipped mussels in beer and mustard broth. The seafood was fresh, tasty and well-priced. An enjoyable lunch that won't break the bank.

We enjoyed dinner here with friends on a very quiet Friday night. The service was very good. I enjoyed a lovely chilli squid entree and salmon steak main. Some of the meals were less successful. The Hapuka that two of our party had was dry unfortunately. The seafood chowder excellent
