Best of the bunch in Kaitaia really, don't expect amazing food, pretty average and beer on tap was flat, pretty expensive for what you get really but you're really limited in the immediate area.

We had dinner here last week and enjoyed it very much. I had the sweet potato chowder which I thought was delicious, it was thick and sweet but not sugary. It had a Dahl-like consistency. My husband had the steak which was very good as he likes it well done, this one had a lovely flavor and was still tender.... More

We had a lovely lunch here after driving around the bay of islands.staff were friendly. Chicken roberto was to have marinara sauce. My idea of marinara is seafood but was tomato and onion with cheese in other words chicken parmigiana. Was still good but beware of the difference. Hubby had 350 gm steak which he said was very good.

Good food and service considering size of group, nice indoor outdoor flow with a little privacy, provides a great variety of options to cater to most people's tastes. . .

The ambiance is definitely a novelty and the space is big enough for large groups. The staff are friendly and casual, making this a good, low-key, relaxing social option. The food is basically all steaks and bbq options. Good ribs, good steaks, with generous helpings of fries on the side. A bit on the expensive side, especially when compared to... More

Not really my kind of food not bad but not extraordinary . Could be good for family or large party. Would look elsewhere as a couple.
