“The food here is REALLY good”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We chose this restaurant for a family dinner during a recent stopover in Whitianga based solely on the fact it was the closest to our accommodation, and were very happily surprised to find that the chef is fantastic!

In particular my husband tried the seafood chowder (made fresh and apparently delicious), our teenage son got the curry of the day (Butter Chicken) which he also ranked highly. My 10 year old, who usually takes one bite and decides she not really hungry cleaned her plate. So if your'e in town, I'd suggest a meal here.

“Be hungry for this robust food.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

This is the place to go if you are very hungry. Wild hogs is a buzzy bar with outdoor seating & a view of the harbour. It was very busy on the Saturday night that we visited.
I chose a surf & turf salad which had strips of steak, scallops & prawns which had been pan fried; the salad was dressed with an Asian style mild spicy dressing ($22). The portion was huge but very tasty. My other half's steak, chips, green beans & mushrooms ($32) was also huge with crispy chips & delicious steak.
Needless to say we didn't manage puds as we were to stuffed.

“Great location and food”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Lovely to sit and overlook the wharf comings and goings. We enjoyed a very tasty pizza and wedges for a light lunch. Friendly and prompt service. Did not have to wait long for our orders.

“best steak meal in a long time!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

My partner and I had a quick getaway to whitianga, and were hanging out for a good steak. Wandered around on a sunday evening looking for a such a place and came across this. Frankly, we were not dissapointed at all! Steak was perfectly cooked, very generous serving and arrived in a timely manner. Only one staff member out the front, who ran it smoothly and with a great manner! Very impressed. Will be back if ever up that way again and have recommended to others already.
