The refreshment room is fantastic! The service was absolutely amazing, felt very welcome by all staff in the restaurant, the food was out very fast after ordering and the meals tasted amazing. The restaurant is in an amazing spot with a great view of the city from afar.

Top notch service along with "Delicious" reasonably priced food is a recipe for a "GREAT" meal. Besim Saldiray, Managing Director or Sarah Gungor, Manageress will assist you in making the right choice to suit your individual pallet. Thank you both for a"Great" dinner.

We went here on Valentines night. We booked for 7.30 and arrived 10 minutes early. We were fortunate & were shown to our table straight away unlike a lot of others who arrived after us. BUT that's where everything went into slow motion. It took 40 minutes for our order for food & wine to be taken & then took... More

We had a few tapas style plates which were lovely. The food is excellent and the ice cream is homemade and to die for!! The staff were extremely friendly.

We rolled in to our accommodation in Piha only to find nothing open. We remembered seeing a couple of restaurants on our way in, so we set off fearing with it being Valentine night, we'd be going hungry. The first restaurant, Elevation, was full. On reaching The Refreshment room, we nearly turned straight round, it was busy and queuing out... More

Delicious food, our idea of food is going somewhere for dinner that is better than I can cook at home and this was absolutely delicious! Staff were lovely and very efficient. The new owners are a delight and came and introduced themselves, asked if everything was ok, suggested next time to bring the kids and even offered to look after... More

Busy Valentines night. Booked 7.30 table for four, two weeks prior. Turned up at 7.30. No table available. A stressed waitress told us the manager had double-booked the restaurant. The manager told us people had just come in and sat down without booking, happens all the time. He was told that doesn't happen. A table was found after half hour... More
