Food could be better, chicken was dry and not good value
Visited the 1.00pm Thursday Farmer's Market to re provision the boat with lovely fresh fruit and veg. Anchored out a bit but well worth the effort. Good dinghy Dock facility but not many spaces.
Food here was amazing, so yummy and way to much for one person. We had the pork leg, it was so well cooked and fell off of the bone. Blue cheese salad was to die for. The pear topped of the taste explosion. The parmersian eggplant was enjoyable as well. All n all an excellent experience.
Love paihia. Small and lovely. The water is immaculate and the ferry is easy to catch. Staff are friendly and always smiling. Thank you Paihia
