“For a fabulous new local hangout-you have to try the new bar/restaurant in Mangawhai-seriously, you have to check it out-these guys have gone all out!!! Great food(especially the ribs,pizzas,burgers,salads to die for and more…!) fab service, awesome wine list and crafty beers….I will be back again and again!”

“Get the brisket burger – you won’t be disappointed”

“Awesome beer, food and service. The food was particularly great this time around. Not that it’s not normally good but just this time it was next level! Will be back next time we are in the area for sure.”

“Fantastic service, great menu, amazing ribs and tables the kids can draw on. Our new regular!”

“Hidden away in Mangawhai Heads is this cute little pizza restaurant. The decor is quaint and the walls of the entrance are lined with books. They have a phone charging station and the outdoor area is covered in just in case of weather. The pizza chef is tossing the pizza dough in his own area just in front of the kitchen so that patrons can watch his creations in the making. The inside tables have chalkboard tops so that kids and adults alike can draw and play games while they wait (which isn’t long at all from my experience). I can’t believe I haven’t seen chalkboard table-tops in any other restaurant before, it’s genius! The customer service was brilliant, and even though a mistake was made they happily resolved it very quickly. The food is top notch and they have a great selection of beers! Great little place to impress the tourists, and the locals are very lucky to have it all to themselves”
