We stopped in for a drink and a pizza, the beer was a good price I think they have all day specials. The pizza was very good value for money and delicious. I have no problem recommending this place to anyone.

This was a friendly bar and food establishment. Kids are welcome. Great pizzas for $10 on Thursdays 4 to 6 Everyone is so friendly. There is a great Oceanview because the bar is up one floor.

Food was good value for money but we had to send our pizzas back after they were served luke warm. The flavours were average. Service was poor so wouldn't go back.

The staff seemed very inconvenienced by us being there. The girl who served us took forever to come back from out the back and when she did she was very unimpressed with us asking for a menu and then stood there with a impatient look on her face. Becasue of her attitude we decided not to buy any food and... More

We loved it here! It was a cute little bar and restaurant right on the beach with live music. It was casual and laid back, with cheap beers and lovely staff - exactly what we were looking for!

Each time we went here for drinks or lunch/ dinner, the girl at the bar never smiles or at least says Kia Orana & Welcome! seems like she doesn't love her job. Its sad really, the view is great though overlooking the partial ocean and the breeze. Im not a fan of their pizzas, maybe after the 2nd time just... More

Open for lunch and dinner Monday to Saturday. Awesome happy hour prices for all to enjoy. Pool table also available for entertainment. Meal selections are decently priced and there is also something suitable for the kids.

We went for the cheap happy hour drinks and decided to stay for the buffet pizza night. The food started coming out on 6pm and the pizza was really nice. However, the pizzas that were brought out at 6pm were still their at 7pm because we were the only people eating at the buffet. I waited for about 30 minutes... More
