Good for groups or dinner for 2, great service and popular with locals. They take bookings.
Right next to Waipu Cove beach, you can enjoy delicious food, a good selection of wine and beer and amazing milkshakes and icecream
Second restaurant to the Dune mentioned above. However this one has waterviews. Menu is similar but has some additions we love this place too. Great staff also.

“One of regional New Zealand's best museums, this spectacular building on the main road linking Mangawhai village to Mangawhai Heads is packed with interesting displays on the area's history and environment. Check out the roof shaped like a stingray. There's also a sun-drenched cafe worthy of a stop.”
