You don't have to eat here, you could just have a coffee or a glass of wine and while away the hours people watching. There are tables outside on the pavement but plenty of room inside should the weather turn nasty. The food is very good and the presentation is excellent and you can also get a pint of Good... More

I'm not sure if my reaction was coloured by two superb meals out in the Bay of Pleanty, and I must admit being a good Kiwi I dislike being negative; but I was disappointed. The service was attentive and friendly, and I was told that the fish of the day was good, however the pork belly was tough, dry and... More

Stopped off for coffee. Coffee arrived luke warm. In fairness to the establishment it was replaced however the 2nd cup was not much better. First time in my life have ever complained Re coffee. Probably wouldn't go back there again.

I am great full that my wife wanted coffee. We dropped in and everything looked so good and fresh that I got the sausage roll. This was amazing. Crunchy crispy pastry , beautiful sausage meat with actual pulled pork added in and spinach mash centre. Then I ate half of my wife's coconut lemon cake and that was amazing! This... More

We were probably the first customers of the day. The staff were not so excited to greet us or serve us - maybe they were still asleep given it was only 8.30am. Coffee was pretty good but we went next door for breakfast.

If you visit the Umu restaurant try the mussel plate (enough for 2 to share) - great food! The wine selection is excellent. You can enjoy breakfast and lunch at this place too. The meals are nourishing. A "healthy" option like fruit, muesli etc. would have been nice though. The staff is attentive. Only four stars instead of five because... More

We visited Umu this time last year and really enjoyed it...we were extremely impressed with both the food and service. We were in the area again with friends and recommended it highly to them, however, this time round we were a bit disappointed. The service was OK...some of the staff appeared a little bewildered. The food was just above average...the... More
