Great food and awesome service. We had a 5 course degustation menu with Mill Reef wines to match. The food was brilliant, service outstanding and great atmosphere!

Booked a few days ahead and requested a table for four inside (outside in this weather no way). Arrived and were shown to our table exactly where we wanted to be seated, close to the fire, however, not right on top of it. As we...More

The location isn't intimate being right on an intersection, but it so doesn't matter - you can go inside or out. The staff are fabulously friendly and the service is great. Glass of wine is generous and the food is really quite good. Drop in...More

Good food range, and the wait is not long considering the number of people it takes. You can just visit for a wine or beer and the television and meze's.

We visited on a Sunday for breakfast, it wasn't full & we easily got a table outside. We had to go & get our own menus after multiple wait staff ignoring us. We ordered coffees & breakfast. The coffees took ages to come out only...More

Almost every time I visit Auckland I come here for breakfast and have never been disappointed. Firstly, the seating (I always sit inside) is very comfortable. The service is consistently excellent and the variety and quality of dishes is impressive. It is also really reasonably...More

I paid this restaurant a visit and was a little disappointed. Firstly service - we were sat outside - round the corner and the waitress simply failed to come with the menu. So my friend and I moved and sure enough we were able to...More

This is all pleasant enough. Nice outdoor seating on the road corner. Friendly and helpful waitstaff were always on the move so nothing could be missed or forgotten. The lunch menu was interesting enough and the food was ready promptly which is always good for...More

Paper Moon is undisputedly Mairangi Bay's favourite dining and drinking spot. Be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or drinks into the evening, we're the place that pleases. Open seven days from 7:30am to 11pm, it's our passion to create the perfect occasion. We've had much praise heaped on us and we love it! Our simply named 'Beans and Bacon Breakfast' won us the Watties New Zealand Cafe of the Year title, and our Beef Wellington has customers raving and returning regularly. This is, of course, merely the tip of our culinary iceberg... Everyone loves a Happy Hour and ours is every day, from 3-6pm. So it's actually a Happy Three Hours. (We're good like that!) Bringing you house wines for $5.90, and beers for $6.90 makes us happy too! Feel special with a cocktail special on Wednesday nights - they're only $10. Our coffee is Allpress. Enough said. Except to say that our staff are actually trained on site and off by Allpress as well. We aim to please our many four-legged friends too here - water bowls outside ensure its not only the humans who enjoy some refreshment. Our staff love dogs, so you can be sure they'll be doted on and shown lots of love! And, with or without dog, it's always nice to take a wander to the beautiful beach we're blessed to have just a short walk down the road. We think one of our takeout Kapiti ice-creams compliments a beach walk nicely too... This is all good, we know, but don't take our word for it! Come and raise a glass with us soon at Paper Moon.
