The new chef has nailed it. Lunch options are stunning for the money and inexpensive. Ingredients seem top notch. Evening menu prices are a little pricey but understandable considering what's served on the plate. The food and presentation is a 10. The venue itself needs work as it's just not inviting or in keeping with the quality of the food. Yes the outside views are amazing but at the sacrifice of the inside space. Don't get me wrong it's new and functional but not inviting.

Don't be put off by the members only signs. Just go in and eat as you will love it. The munch experience, and the smiles thereafter, definitely outweigh noticing the bland decor.

A must for a family feast.

As Phil K says in his review, best view in Whangamata, great food - and plenty of it too! Try the fish dishes - massive. Staff are friendly, there's a good selection of drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
Go there with friends for lunch and just spend the afternoon enjoying the ambience, the friendly staff and watching the comings and goings of surfers and boats over the bar (the entrance to the harbour bar, not the booze bar!)
Regular changes in the menu entice diners back again and again. The chefs are helpful and will add or detract ingredients or meat/ veges if you ask.

Nice location to show off the harbour views to your visitors. Quite good selection of wines & beers. Unfortunately the restaurant's ambiance does not reflect its prominent position as it's a self-service canteen with nice basic food but nothing special.

This is the best apple and berry crumble ever! Served with vanilla bean ice cream, a small jug of pouring cream (essential!!) and some whites chocolate crunchy crumb on the side.
Superb!
