This place used to be great, the pizzas are thin and lacklustre bland flavour. We were told 15min wait and waited 35min for 2 small pizzas and there were only 2 other customers, won't be back.

We wanted somewhere nice and casual with reasonable prices, good food, and a friendly service. The chips are really good too ( apart from the pizzas). We were served in a reasonable time.

Great little spot right on the Tutukaka marina. Very basic seating outdoor but has a seaside feel. Seafood chowder was excellent, as was the pasta with clams. Pizza thin based and good value. Great spot to spend some time admiring the boats!

Located near the end of the marina we enjoyed the pizza and catch of the day that tasted good. Surrounded by locals, other tourists, most with their kids, it is a very informal place to have dinner and a drink.

Overall a nice little pizza place. Nothing super special but exactly what you need after a day out diving or at the beach. Nice pizza and friendly staff.

This is a reasonably price restaurant that offers yummy pizzas along with other dishes. You look out at the marina and enjoy watching the boats come in. Nice family atmosphere with lots of outdoor seating. 😎

From the moment we arrived we had great friendly service, as it was busy we were warned our main could be 45 mins which was fine with us we had the calamari to start which didn't take long at all to arrive and was devine!!! then the pizza arrived about 20 mins later and was lovely also.

We ordered takeaway pizza, so can't comment on their other food, but the pizza was bland and tasteless. I ordered a meatlovers and the italian, and we couldn't tell the difference - they had no discerning flavour. At $24 each, they were also very small.

When we arrived we were greeted by a particularly unfriendly woman who advised us that we could not sit on the balcony as they were setting up for a band. All of the other tables were taken, the staff didn't understand how this was a problem and offered no solution. We managed to snag a table and were advised that... More

Hi there, Sorry you were inconvenienced we were setting up for a big night. We stopped serving mains from 3pm and went to pizza only. The balcony area was being set up with a stage and PA and was cleared of all tables. This was an advertised gig and was much anticipated by locals and tourists. The musicians arrived a... More

It is a wee bit on the expensive side but in a fabulous location the children loved watching the stingrays and all the boats. The clam linguini which was actually spagetti was very delicious and the pizza bases are crispy. Dont expect to get anything resembling a Pizza Hutt sized Pizza and you won't be dissapointed

Thanks for coming and enjoying our great spot. The FOH team should not have told you it was Linguini as its actually on the menu as Spaghetti alle Vongolle. More
