We had an amazing time with our two little ones at this gem of a restaurant directly overlooking the beach. Live music, great selection of food and beers, casual but upbeat vibe. Gourmet and well prices meals. Absolutely perfect, welcoming to young families but well and truly hits the spot for young and trendy too. Had a wonderful time and... More

Great restaurant a block away from the bus station. Walking away from the main bus drop off gives one a bit more ambiance. Fish and chips, wine, beer are all good choices for this restaurant.

We went here for brunch. Staff are super friendly and you can't complain about the food, good solid brunch fare. But really this place is about the location and views. Onetangi beachfront is a pretty special place to eat your breakie.

Very disappointed. This is our local, we had our Grandson with us. My Grandson had 3 sliders, the pulled pork was a small amount and dry, the fish was ok, he didn't attempt the chicken. The rolls were sweet and nondescript. My quesadillas were pathetic, a tiny amount of filling and the flat bread was nothing much, they were only... More

Good value for money and appeals to all ages. Friendly staff and good service. Every time i've visited there are delays over the holiday season but to be expected so be patient during peak times.

We've been coming to waiheke for over 6 years and year on year any time of day this place never disappoints! Coffee and service is always professional and with a smile. The food is yes "high" in price but amazing! You never feel ripped off or disappointed! Beautiful location on the waterfront of Onetangai, this place is always buzzing and... More

What a magical setting. Right on the water's edge. It is the way to interact watching families on the beach in the water and simply enjoying life. the food was good. Staff were very good. Blankets are provided if it cools off which is a nice touch.

Counter service, pub grub. Food good, location even better. Gets very busy in summer. Nice to sit outside and watch the world go by and those on the beach. Have at times seen dolphins in the water out front.

Lovely wine and antipasto platter by the sea. Friendly staff and great service. On a bus route straight from the ferry so the restaurant is easily accessible.
