“Brilliant value and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

You need to sign in to eat at the cruising club but it's location beside the marina in Opua is worth the visit alone. The meals are honest home style cooking and unbelievably cheap. The fish and chips and salad were very tasty fresh fish - crispy batter. The atmosphere is friendly and warm and ambiance very marine. I'd love to come back in summer and eat on the lovely deck.

“Best value meals in the Bay of Islands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

As one of the few 'clubs' the Paihia area, this is outstanding for value, quality (and quantity). Bistro service with reasonable bar prices makes this a great place, especially as the local yachties are not only a welcoming bunch - they contribute to the running and the atmosphere of the club.
If you are in the area its well worth checking out - but make sure you check what days it is open (and what's on) & get there before the kitchen closes (sometimes around 8.30pm). In summer a great place to sit on the deck overlooking the marina.
