We were treated to lunch here by some good friends and I was delighted when I heard it was to be for McHughs. We came here for a wedding several years ago and it was great for that too. We aren't big eaters and usually can't do a buffet justice. However, I do feel that if the food is good... More

We had our daughters wedding there last Friday 24 February. What more can be said, awesome venue, food and location. The owners need to cherish James as he is very efficient in what he does and makes the organisation of the function run very smoothly. He has done so many functions it comes very natural. He gave us guidance during... More

This is a very nice place right on the beach with views of the ocean from most tables. We had lunch and the food was done well and staff very attentive

We were 5 and a half for lunch to celebrate my sister in law's birthday. The half (age 3) was not charged. Buffet lunch was as already reviewed. In need of some punch. We suggest a carvery added to the mains and cream / ice cream be added to the dessert options. Fantastic view over sandy beach to Rangitoto Island.... More

McHughs has always been renown for its fabulous location and delicious buffet style food. We had my daughters wedding here several years ago and everyone love it including two relatives from Ohio. They were keen to revisit for a family reunion so I duly booked. What a disappointment this time. We had the Sunday buffet lunch and it was less... More

Thus is an older restaurant on the edge of the bay on the north Shore. We were there with a group and there was also a wedding reception so it might have been pleasanter when quiet. The room is just a large room but the windows look out on the bay on two sides. The buffet is good, though not... More

McHughes still has the most wonderful position right there on Cheltenham Beach, and my family and I have many great memories of family weddings and occasions there. But it is now tired and very average. The food is boring and still requires lining up like a camp. Refresh and renew. Please.
