TopSail is a restaurant you DO NOT WANT TO MISS when visiting Whangarei Northland New Zealand. The Chef is first class and the service perfect. Situated on the Bay, plan to go there close to sunset! Fabulous!

12 of us celebrated a family birthday, we couldn't have asked for anything better. The food was exceptional with a variety of meals to suit everyone, with side dishes included for the table. The service was great, so friendly and accomodating. Will definitely be going back. Without a doubt the best restaurant in Whangarei.

A true dining experience! From the drive in, listening to the same album they played in the restaurant!?! To the table overlooking the water. Windsurfers... More
