We had originally planned to have lunch at Waipu's well known pizza restaurant - but when we arrived, it was closed for the Waitangi Day holiday. A quick look around revealed 'L'Amour de Kasbah' just around the corner - and what a find. We decided to go for a selection of Tapas dishes, all of which were fantastic. The service was attentive though not particularly fast - but then, we weren't there for speed. If you want speed go to the Golden Arches!! We sat and enjoyed the lunchtime sunshine and watched the world go by. After the meal our coffee was served with a great slice of cake. All in all, a real treat which more than made up for missing out on the pizza! Next time in Waipu, this will be our first port of call.
