best value ice-creams in a cone - lots of flavours and big scoops. Just make sure you push the ice-cream down into the cone or the can fall of on first lick.

We got beautiful terakihi fish that had a breadcrumb coating that kept on falling off the fish as we tried to eat it. However that did not bother us because it tasted sooooooo good.

Staff busy and not terribly interested in being friendly. Don't think one staff member even made eye contact. However, it's ok for a quick ice cream after a day at the beach.

Situated next to the beach. A welcome sight after arriving very late the night before. Good,morning coffee. Reasonable priced breakfasts. Plenty of staff. Fast service. Lots of choice for whole family. Room for outside dining. Not fancy, but perfect for the average kiwi family.

Thank Tracey M
