Fodor's Review

A wooden-beam roof and oiled floorboards give this former warehouse on the wharf a nautical vibe. You can get close to the water, too, outside on the large harbor-front deck. Inside or out, it's a lively spot, particularly on Friday nights. The mostly seafood menu includes grilled game fish, Tom Yum broth, clams, mussels, and prawns. Desserts include a gingernut base tarte tatin with Pohutukawa Honey ice cream. The place draws crowds on weekends and can be a bit noisy.

Come on!

Loud bar, and impossible to talk over dinner. Potatoes came cold, so waitress put the meal in the microwave! She took forever to do anything! Horrible place to eat!
