The Harbour House Cafe

Came for coffee. Lovely, friendly wait staff, good coffee, nice ambience and while we did not eat, we wished we hadn’t, as we saw food being served. They cook fresh or have some delectable premade food, cakes and biscuits. Would definitely recommend fir breakfasts and lunch.Lovely clean loos too.

A few of us decided to watch the cars return on the Saturday evening after the Rally finished in Whitianga so decided to pop in to Stoked for a snack and some refreshments.Lovely setting beside the beach and great vantage spot to see the cars come past.They are most welcoming even if it was just a snack and a drink.Nice menu if you want a great meal, we know, we have dined here several times.Great craft beers and local wines on offer as well as the usual varieties.

Reviewed By Venture592873

Not a pleasant experience last Wednesday morning- the young woman taking orders was bordering on rude - no please or thankyou, no smile, very abrupt. Also we had to pay $6 each for a fairly small takeaway coffee - $1 extra each for decaf. Come on people! Most cafes no longer charge extra for decaf - but if they do, its much less than a dollar extra!

Squids Bar & Restaurant

Reviewed By dennisrkilpatrick

Yesterday I was looking at all of the Trip Advisor reviews for restaurants in Whitianga. I narrowed it down to three and then checked out their menus. When I open Squids Bar and Restaurant right there on the entree list (starters) were Mussels Kilpatrick. Now, I have had "Kilpatrick" in my name for more than 6 decades, but I had never eaten that dish--or even heard of it. I figured it was destiny, so we went there for dinner. We were not disappointed! Excellent food! I, of course, had to get the mussels for starter, my friend ordered fish tacos--and we are from Texas so we know fish tacos! They were very, very good. That was easily the farthest from Texas I have ever ventured into our beloved "Tex-Mex". The main course (that we split) was the sesame fish and it had a delightful ginger salad greens that came with it, both are tasty. Despite being completely full of diners we had excellent service. The staff was exceptionally friendly. I will return here, but not JUST for the Mussels! I recommend a booking on the weekends as there were several "walk-ins" who wanted to eat, but there was no more room!

Had breakfast here back in Jan 2019 down here again in Sep 2019 for the weekend of the Scallop festival, no questions about it back to this establishment for breakfast both Saturday and Sunday mornings. Both mornings palce was flat out yet food didn't take long to arrive and cooked nicely. Great Coffee as well, Order a Flat White in a bucket with no froth. Flat White arrives in a Latte bowl and no froth. Just what I ordered THANK YOU. You would not beleive how hard it is to get a flat white without froth in so many places around NZ

We had a great tasting menu with wine pairings. This is a true fine dining experience without the pretension and without the hefty price tag! Loved the food and the reasonably priced wine selection. Service was friendly and down to earth. Would love to go back, and would go out of our way for another meal here.

I’m always concerned when change of ownership occurs, however this crew have simply made what was ok even better. Perfect spot for the morning coffee, breakfast, bunch or any other daytime snack. Cabinet food is of a high quality and priced accordingly to small town prices. I only wish they could nag the old raspberry and white chocolate muffin recipe from many years back - they were the best
