This is a rather interesting place. It's a few miles off the main road, down a narrow winding road. Seems at the outset that it might barely be worth the trouble. Instead, you're greeted with a restaurant that serves amazing food and, as an added...More

A place where Mother Nature tickles your taste buds! Sample great home-style cooking, using fresh ingredients from the Coromandel; like Hauraki Flounder, Green Lipped Mussels and seasonal treats. Served in a tranquil setting surrounded by New Zealand flora. The perfect place to enjoy a 'Dam’ good coffees and home-baked delights.
