My husband and I visited Split earlier this week . The restaurant was full apart from one table for two that we were given by a delightful young woman waitress. She very thoughtfully suggested we order quickly so we would be ahead of a table of ten , and we did appreciate that. The dinner was delicious for both of... More

Fabulous food & fabulous service. Great atmosphere, buzzing & busy. Great for any occasion with friends or families. Not an extensive menu which I think is a plus, what is on the menu is cooked very well.

This was my third (or fourth?) visit to Split and I was as impressed this visit as much as the first! We came in with no booking on a busy Saturday night and enjoyed a mezze style platter before going to a game. The platter came out quickly with friendly service and the food tasted superb. We planned to come... More

Went here with family recently for lunch. Whangerei doesn't have a lot of good eateries so I wasn't expecting much. Wow, how wrong was I. Splits doesn't look amazing from the road but inside is well laid out with a good sized outdoor area out back. Service was incredible. Manager noticed the my sister and other half looked a bit...

Came for dinner on a cold Monday night. The restaurant was lovely and warm and the staff friendly and welcoming. I ordered the fillet steak and it was delicious, perfectly cooked and a good sized meal that I couldn't finish. The only negative point is that it took ages to get our meal, we were the only ones in the... More

Managed to drop the kids off to the Grandparents & visit Split. Very impressed with the service, cheerful staff & prompt food service. A great menu that's not overwhelming & a beverage list that's ample but still enjoyable. We'll return next time we get the chance.

Thank Mike S

Enjoy a tasty cooked meal using fresh local produce and seafood, and succulent New Zealand lamb & beef. There is beer on tap and a range of beautiful New Zealand wines. Whether you are dining with us or simply wish to enjoy the atmosphere, a glass of wine and a delicious mezze platter after work, you are always welcome at Split.

The two separate areas within Split, cater for a restaurant dining experience with cocktail bar, or a garden bar with a fun relaxed atmosphere, and a giant screen to entertain if desired. You can find us opposite the Post Office in Rathbone St, Whangarei.
