We ventured to Paper Moon for a late lunch during the weekend. We were slightly worried about parking but easily found a park opposite the cafe. There was a variety of seating both inside and outside and we chose inside due to the wind. We...More

This is probably one of the best restaurants on the north shore. Value for money wise and great food. As a vegetarian I tried the mushroom burger in the tapas section. Dropped the chips for salad. So tasty. It's unbelievable how many restaurants can't do...More

Very friendly and helpful service staff, and high-quality food that is reasonably priced. But I did not like the implicit pressure to leave a tip when paying for the bill. It would be highly preferable if they increased their prices by the average amount they...More

Really good menu and everything we chose was so tasty. The curly fries were a must share. The service was great no hurry to get rid of us. Price was average for the shore. Definitely return in the evening.

Great food and awesome service. We had a 5 course degustation menu with Mill Reef wines to match. The food was brilliant, service outstanding and great atmosphere!

Booked a few days ahead and requested a table for four inside (outside in this weather no way). Arrived and were shown to our table exactly where we wanted to be seated, close to the fire, however, not right on top of it. As we...More

The location isn't intimate being right on an intersection, but it so doesn't matter - you can go inside or out. The staff are fabulously friendly and the service is great. Glass of wine is generous and the food is really quite good. Drop in...More

Good food range, and the wait is not long considering the number of people it takes. You can just visit for a wine or beer and the television and meze's.

Paper Moon is undisputedly Mairangi Bay's favourite dining and drinking spot. Be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or drinks into the evening, we're the place that pleases. Open seven days from 7:30am to 11pm, it's our passion to create the perfect occasion. We've had much praise heaped on us and we love it! Our simply named 'Beans and Bacon Breakfast' won us the Watties New Zealand Cafe of the Year title, and our Beef Wellington has customers raving and returning regularly. This is, of course, merely the tip of our culinary iceberg... Everyone loves a Happy Hour and ours is every day, from 3-6pm. So it's actually a Happy Three Hours. (We're good like that!) Bringing you house wines for $5.90, and beers for $6.90 makes us happy too! Feel special with a cocktail special on Wednesday nights - they're only $10. Our coffee is Allpress. Enough said. Except to say that our staff are actually trained on site and off by Allpress as well. We aim to please our many four-legged friends too here - water bowls outside ensure its not only the humans who enjoy some refreshment. Our staff love dogs, so you can be sure they'll be doted on and shown lots of love! And, with or without dog, it's always nice to take a wander to the beautiful beach we're blessed to have just a short walk down the road. We think one of our takeout Kapiti ice-creams compliments a beach walk nicely too... This is all good, we know, but don't take our word for it! Come and raise a glass with us soon at Paper Moon.
