Excelent food, service, accueil and value. Watch out, the portions are large, a number of times our eyes have been larger than our stomachs!

Support your local! The Landing is a very popular spot with the locals here in Katikati, either the Restaurant or the Sports Bar are just the spot for a well prepared, cooked and delivered meal at a good price. Good people providing good service in a great little pub!

Situated on the main Street of Katikati (northern end) I call this a good pub. Good wholesome "pub food" good beer and wine. Make pretty good pizzas. Service prompt and friendly. Each Friday they have an evening meal at $25 which includes a free beer or wine. From the restaurant area you can walk out into a huge courtyard which... More

Visited the Talisman/The Landing Restaurant in Katikati on Sunday and had a very average meal of salt and pepper squid myself, my daughter ordered the Kids fish and chips (well priced tho) and the quality of the fish was not what I would have expected of a restaurant.

Based on other reviews we thought this place would be great but we thought it was pretty average. The seafood chowder didn't have seasoning and could have had bigger chunks of seafood. The garlic pizza bread was way over salted with garlic salt - no fresh garlic in sight. Chicken Caesar burger had no flavour, very disappointing. Service was good... More

Stopped in for lunch after going to the Katikati Bird Garden. Fantastic food - pizza and sliders were great - and toys to keep the kids busy. Staff were fantastic - arranging desserts to be taken away so we could get going on the road again. We will be back!

Always like to stop for a meal here when visiting KatiKati, has the best seafood chowder I have had, plus deserts are always good. Good service and reasonable prices.

We ate here without a booking over Easter weekend. Very surprised with the quality of the food and the attentiveness of the staff. We were a party of five adults who share food and it was a perfect place for us. We ordered a selection of entrees and mains and shared. The food was very good. We had prawns, calamari,... More
