It can be a busy place and was quite busy last weekend. Our dinner time was 8.30pm and it was more relaxing by then. The Restaurant has a great... More

So we did, pan fried groper with mussels. All fresh & tasty, good portions. Nice place, not much to choose from in Tutukaka. Place was dead as not peak season.

Had some lunch and dinner with nicely selected Kiwi wines, love the outdoor patio and the view overlooking Tutukaka harbour and 'scene'. Great staff and food/price value.

All the boats were in and the wind and rain was challenging. Found Schnappa Rocks by default. It seemed every one was here having tasty beverages. Food and service was very good. Would recommend any one visiting or staying in the area.

A great little restaurant in an unlikely location. The settings is "Jimmy Buffett meets Cocktail" but the food is excellent. The green-lipped mussels are the thing, but in my five visits I have found that everything is good. Service can be a bit slow, but for the only place in small holiday town that is hardly a complaint. Friendly, obliging... More

Schnappa Rock is a bit of a Northlanders' Spot-X. You can't go wrong really. The place is well established, known for good food, friendly service and in a great location. Keep it up!

The Lamb Tortillas are super tasty, the smoked onion aioli seals and he deal. The greens are super fresh and the staff warm and friendly. Great views. Great food. Check it out.

We ate here on two occasions, once for lunch then a few days later for dinner; we really loved it both times. We ate outside for lunch, what a beautiful place to sit.....The service was very good, and considering how busy they were, we were even more impressed. The food was excellent, well cooked, well presented and reasonably priced. Dinner... More
