Dining Out

Paihia is full of restaurants, ranging from the classic kiwi fish and chips to upmarket fine dining.  We have listed a few of our favourites and are happy to make a booking for you.




Alongside provides a relaxed social atmosphere and is situated over the water in the heart of Paihia. There is no place quite like it and no better place to while away the hours enjoying a drink or a tasty platter.  It has a laid back, casual feel to the huge decked area.  Menu



35 Degrees South

You can’t beat “35” for location and it is an amazing spot to dine.  Enjoy the panoramic views while you grab a quick drink or lunch or dinner.  Menu




Alfresco’s overlooks the water and is open from 7.30am.  They have great food and a great atmosphere and live music every Sunday from 3-6pm.  Our favourite for breakfast. Menu



Ruffino’s Pizza & Pasta

Everyone loves Pizza right?!  So handy being just down the road, Ruffino’s has an intimate and fun atmosphere.  Pizza, pasta and salads. Open for dinner from 5.30 and lunch in summer.  Menu



Upperdeck Cafe

Enjoy a meal, drink or coffee overlooking the Bay of Islands, Upperdeck is great for breakfast or lunch or to enjoy a quick bite from the counter.  Menu
