Had breakfast here early morning. Quick service, friendly staff. We had the crepes and eggs on toast. Decent size for price. Probably the best view of Paihia as you are elevated.

Nice location and view, but the food really deserves the praise. In addition to the regular eggs and bacon, they had yummy sandwiches to choose from. Everything was fresh and delicious!

I got breakfast at Upper Deck 3 times, mostly because it was right next to my hotel, but also because it was pretty good. I got the crepes once, eggs benedict, and yogurt and muesli. All of them were good. Nothing fantastic, but reliably good.

It was extremely good value for money. The new owners were working really hard on providing a varied menu. I had the fish while my husband had the steak (for dinner).
