Really popular and buzzing place in the Centre of the village. Amazing and fresh seafood, friendly but a little erratic service. Very nice food though. Sit on the verandah. Magic.

It's in Oneroa - the main town area closest to the ferry (Matiatia - not the car ferry at Kennedy Point). You can walk into town in 15-20min or there are taxis and buses at the ferry and in town you can grab.
