I visited today (am a fairly regular customer due to great service, excellent food and lovely location) with friends and my 2 year old. We were, as usual, welcomed warmly by Dave and seated at a shady table on the front deck. My toddler was looking a bit peaky and not her usual self but was happy to sit in... More

I sat outside on a beautiful evening overlooking the bay. I had an early dinner and chose the kiwi fish and chips. The fish was delicious and fresh and cooked really well. The broadwalk chips are perfect, crispy on the outside and soft inside. The coleslaw was handmade. Dessert was a very generous slice of passion fruit cheesecake with ice... More

Having failed to find a nice restaurant the night before, we walked past the commercial harbour to Ahuriri, the pretty harbour which is lovely. Boardwalk cafe was a great find, and we returned for dinner - best chips ever!!!!!

We enjoyed the water views from the deck area of this restaurant. Service was fine. Perhaps we just made the wrong choices however we didn't enjoy our meals so we decided to share and neither of us enjoyed the other meal either. Seafood Lasagne, listed as a house specialty, had a strong fishy taste so we couldn't taste the individual... More

We were greeted by friendly staff who gave us great service even though we had only popped in for a bite of lunch. The restaurant has a lovely inside-outside feel to it, with a pleasant inside eating area, a covered outside area and tables right on the boardwalk - all with a view of the beachfront which was very ambient....

Overlooking Hawke's Bay, we got 50% off at First Table, but the meal was worth full price. A great steak with onion rings, fries, egg, Bacon. My wife had the ribs and they were also fantastic. Adffogato for dessert to share and it was enough for two.

Lovely food and view. Our waitress was lovely but the blonde girl really needs to smile and chat a bit more. 😕 Partner had Mediterranean meatballs and I had the maple pork. Both were excellant. Over all not a bad night, food and wine serviced in reasonable time.

My birthday was made special with lunch on the deck. The view of the Bay, and the kiddies enjoying picnics and swimming in the sea was priceless. Meals were very large, well presented and devine. Service was great! Good prices too!
