Just for a change we popped in here for a bite of lunch to break the journey, but never again. The smell of the place should have put us off straight away - the odour of frying food permeated the whole place and even sitting outside wasn't odourless. As for the food, it was dreadful. Next time I think we'll... More

I am sorry you had a bad experience. The smell you are referring to is actually from the takeaway shop next door, and very occasionally wafts round. Unfortunately I have no control over it. It's a shame you didn't tell me when I asked (as I always do) that you weren't happy. We usually have very good feedback about our... More

Was a wonderful birthday dinner for my husband and family. Kim the owner and her chef are brilliant and the menu was well covered to suit all of our family and when it was brought to he table it was presented well and tasted delicious.

Had morning tea there, but no food....Wern't hungry. Food looked awfully good though and others who where there, had good portions of food which looked very fine.

2 years ago we visited Warkworth and were told about Quinces. We were very impressed by a great Crumbed Fish and Chip meal and were looking forward to a repeat this year. There was no one in the restaurant and the meal was very poor. The fish was nuggets out of the freezer, the fries were very unappetizing and the... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in Warkworth last Saturday night. We ate dinner at the Quince Cafe , and then brunch again the following day. Both meals were outstanding! I wish this restaurant was in Auckland as I can't think of anywhere with food this good. We will be back for sure.

Had a Sunday breakfast here in a group of 9. We were able to "pre- order". I had the breakfast crumble which was apple and quince topped with oats and coconut, accompanied by a small dish of unsweetened yogurt. It was very tasty with the topping being nice and crunchy, not soggy like so many cafes crumbles. Coffees and meals... More

We have always enjoyed the pub at Warkworth for lunch but their prices are quite high and so we decided to try the Quince next door. I had chicken livers with bacon and garlic bread....lovely subtle tastes here... enough but not huge which appeals. My husband had the tortellini with chicken, spinach, sundried tomatoes and parmesan sauce. He loved it... More
