Wood oven pizza. You can choose toppings, baked, and yummy. If you want a nice cheap meal in Paihia this is very nice - recommend to take the pizza away an go seat by the water across the road.

Good friendly service. Good reasonable wines. HUGE plates. We had garlic pizza bread, a porky prawn pizza. Then 2 salads, cannelloni, lasagne, fettuccine carbonara and beef ravioli. With 2 bottles of good Pinot noir. Four guys in town after a week at sea. We didn't finish, too good, too much. Did I say friendly? You wouldn't call it fine dining... More

The first thing we were greeted with was the amazing aroma of food cooking. This set the scene for a lovely meal. The sauce base of the pizza was unique, and delicious, as was the pasta. The staff were extremely friendly and time efficient. Worth a visit!

Read reviews for this place a sounded fairly good - but was average. Good size portions but we were seated near where customers queued for their takeaway. I found it uncomfortable to be eating in front of them - ask for a seat nearer the windows. No air conditioning either but fans and it was really warm. Food just quite... More
