My wife and I had dinner here during our stay in Paihia. The restaurant has a good range of seafood and other dishes.
The restaurant is enclosed by a canvas front and sides with flame heaters and blankets supplied if needed to sit on or wrap around the legs.
Being on the seafront there is a view of the ocean over the road.
We had a two course meal finishing with coffee served on the sofa. Staff were friendly and helpful. Cost reasonable.

Really nice place to eat. Good menu which was reasonably priced. Quick and friendly service. A really good spot right on the front.

After hearing the mostly positive reviews we went in for dinner but sadly were NOT too impressed both with the quality of food and service. There certainly is scope for improvement in both areas especially when you have a target audience of visitors who could possibly be your best advertisement.

Overall--6/10

We ordered a bottle of wine and some olives while we waited for our selection of small plates. We waited for ever for everything including water. The food when it arrived though tasted very good. The wines were very pricey. The waitress apologised that they were very busy but that was NOT her fault and certainly NEVER the customer’s. If you haven’t employed enough staff do something about it!

After a disaster the previous evening at restaurant on the bay, we approached Waterfront a bit warily given previous reviews. But we were in for a pleasant surprise, service very good once the drinks were ordered, and attentive staff who knew the menu and wine list backwards, front and sideways. It was busy, but the service was not an issue, and the food (we had two types of fish dishes, and shared an entree) was very good. After going to this restaurant our confidence increased that we could find other good restaurants in Pailia.
