We've waited a long time for the opportunity to experience Val's lovely INCOGNITO and the wait was worthwhile and we were not disappointed. Fabulous food, beautifully presented, served by the gracious Penny. Prices reasonable and not at all over the top. A warning to those...More

This is a small intimate restaurant with a small but adequate menu. I had Salmon and it was Devine we will certainly be returning.

A small place in Whangamata. The food was fabulous. We had Mexican prawn cocktail followed by venison, and it was faultless. Very reasonably priced . The service was very friendly and informal. Highly recommended. Make sure you book ahead.

Lovely meal last night at Incognito. Food and service were very good. We were a party of six and the Prawn Cocktail and Lamb dish were excellent. Worth a try if in town, but only open on selected days, need to check.

Local chef Val has opened up Incognito a couple of nights a week. We shared the duck to start, then the salmon and pad Thai, and shared the strudel to finish. Fantastic food, spot on service, and great pricing.

This is hands down the best restaurant in Whangamata. The meals were perfect, the fish was so fresh it melted in your mouth. It was one of the best dining out experiences we have had in years. The restaurant itself is beautifully done, and although...More

Such a lovely intimate restaurant. Beautiful food and personal service calling us by name. I had roasted duck with herbs and beautiful dressing and flavour all served in lettuce cups. My husband had beef rending which was superb.
