I was there over the Xmas break with 14 of my guests! It was on the whole a wonderful experience. There were a few mixups, but I guess 'give them some slack ' given the large group. We continued on to enjoy a fantastic day walking with friends and family.

Quirky, individual and so 'Coromandel Peninsula'... Hadn't visited Eggsentric in years so I wasn't sure what to expect but we were super impressed with the food and the service, so much so we visited more than once in the few days that we were based in the area. There was one 'lost in translation' moment on a coffee order for... More

The food here was unusual, for example a fish breakfast, well cooked and served with great charm and friendliness. We has breakfast and cake (twice!) There was a big fire and a small shop as well.

Great salad . Scallops were lovely. Good cafe for breakfast or lunch. Lots of outdoor seating and interesting sculptures. Quick and efficient service. Great ice-cream.

The visit was a couple of months ago and I cannot recall what my wife and I had to eat. But it was all excellent! We dined outside and it was very pleasant. There are lots of interesting sculptures to look at while you wait. Because I was driving, I didn't partake of the beer which looked like it would... More

We went to this place for an evening meal. It doesn't make a particularly great first impression -it's a bit of a shambles, and the two lads who looked after us were so laid back they were in danger of falling over. But the food, when it arrived, was outstanding, beautifully cooked and presented, and with lovely and subtle complementary... More

The food was all quite average - both burgers were burnt to black and the chips were just the frozen kind. Other people at our table were also not impressed. The table was... More
