A favourite for my wife and I when we visit the Kapiti Coast. The view is unbeatable with Kapiti Island just across the channel and the South Island can be seen on clear days. Even in bad weather the view is majestic. There's a good salad bar and a selection of good fish dishes. Word of warning - choose chips... More

extremely disappointed with the meals. The kids burgers was just a meat patty chucked on a burger bun with a squirt of tomato sauce. The fishermans basket was barely eatable had a funky taste and was obviously seafood from the freezer, the worst fishermans basket we have ever eaten. The only good thing about the meals were the chips. You... More

A great location, right on the water. Nice booths to sit in and friendly staff. The salad bar wasnt as plentiful as I thought it might be, but the salads were varied and tasty. More diet options would be good for those wanting a healthier option as most of the salads had lots of dressings in them. The menu had... More

Receptionist very friendly initially not so much when we walked out and said we didn't have time to wait for our desert which we waited for at least half an hour. Everyone had left and it wasn't as though they were unindated with customers. How hard is it to put a chocolate shell on a plate with ice cream ?... More

Visited for the first time in 7 years withi family while on recent holiday in NZ. We have a lovely meal, great service and views. The restaurant appears to have been spruced up since our last visit - and it makes for a much more pleasant experience.

This restaurant is not new, it's a bit old, but for us in a quirky fun sort of way. While the decor is dated, it all appeared clean and well maintained, and made for a good evening out with the kids. The restaurant's focus is on value for money, and I think they deliver. Mains portions are small (no problem... More

Spontaneous decision to go for lunch, good variety to choose off the menu and heaps to pick from the salad bar. Meals were of a good size and were lovely. Service was good and prompt. Would go back again.

I was expecting a reduced service over Christmas and was pleasantly surprised to be wrong. The meal was first class, the service not too over attentive, but attentive enough, and the wait was short. Our guests from the UK were amazed by the million dollar view and the relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant. Definitely go again.

Stopped for a large lunch whilst travelling on SH1. Convenient location with nice views. Loved the all you can eat salad buffet that is included in the lunch. It was tasty with good variety. Toilet was clean. Fish main course was tasty and non seafood alternatives are available too. Adequate value for money. We will eat here again. The only... More

We love coming here for the variety of salads and mains. I've been coming here since I was little girl and it was a real treat then. No nonsense home cooked type meals. Super fresh fish always. I love the pan fried flounder. Views are great and service is always friendly. We come up especially for this type of meal... More
