We stopped for a drink and decided to stay for lunch. We tried the homemade veg burger with onion rings and the steak fajitas, and also had a piña colada. All were spot on for quality, freshness & taste. Would recommend for lunch!

This place has a fun vibe, good food and friendly servers. The lamb tangine was delicious, as were the fish and chips. We enjoyed our lunch here as we were passing through Paia.
