We thought this menu looked good so booked for dinner and were not disappointed. It was busy, but service was friendly and efficient without in any way hurrying us. We were spoilt for choice but eventually decided on our food - our server was very...More

Nice location. At first we stood waiting for a table inside where you pay until I asked a waitress passing by if we could get one. Waitress took a while to come back to get our drinks and food order. Decided to move inside after...More

We visited last night for dinner and shared a seafood platter, then indulged in the Croquembouche for dessert. Lovely food and the service was great. Very popular place and great for bigger groups too.

Right by our hotel so we had lunch and drinks there one day. Food was good and service was good. Typical Bar style food as we had fish and chips and burgers. I thought they had a good selection of wine offerings

WE have been to the Boardwalk a few times now when in Napier, it is in a great location on the waterfront, and we were biking, so just biked up and went inside. It was a warm day so we sat out the front. We...More

Extremely disappointed. Fried eggs were like rubber over done. Mushrooms stale. Food was delivered cold. Lack of service considering number of staff. No one asked if we enjoyed our meal. Only 8 people in restaurant at time. Would not RECOMMEND.
