    Not too sure what went wrong with the previous critic, but we had a great night. Could not fault the food or the service. Marvelous! I had the lamb tapas, followed by the seafood platter. Both were excellent. Beautiful light flavours and very fresh. My partner had the rock and honey melon balls with prosciutto an d avocado ice cream and she loved it. Then she had the fish of the day, which again was very fresh and delicate. We both had the generous affogato. Perfect to top off the meal. Highly recommended.

    Appalling the worst food I have ever been served we ordered lamb rack and scotch fillet steak all 3 dishes were over cooked and tough the side of vegetables also over cooked a special night in Paihia spoilt for us because of our dining out experience in this restaurant on the 18th January 2014.

    What a lovely place to visit, sitting right on the waterfront, it's decor yet simple is black with cane furniture keeping inline with it's beachy setting. The food was a taste explosion from the blue vein cheese tortellini with blue cheese icecream to the tastings sent out by the chef on the day. The food was tasty and so unusual and plated in a visually pleasing way. If there was any disappointment it was he fact that the creme brulee is no longer on their dessert menu but the petite fours did suffice. All the main dishes sounded excellent I had the lamb and it wasnt just lamb one way but several different ways with an amazing white bean puree that complimented the lamb in a spectacular way. Overall although a bit on the expensive side for Paihia it is worth every cent.
