The only Papamoa restaurant with an unobstructed view of the waves rolling in. Well-equipped to handle big summer numbers, the elegant marquee-like Pacific deck has roll-up sides opening onto the sea and can seat 100 people, while indoors there’s room for another 60.
Full marks to this restaurant for a good range of light meals in two different size-price ranges. Mains include fish of the day, the Crowned Rack of Lamb, and stuffed Chicken Breast. The seafood platter not surprisingly, is the most expensive dish but serves two. Licensed. Open Mon-Sat from 11am, Sun from 10am (extended hours in summer - and campers note - BB is near the gates of Papamoa Beach Top 10 Holiday Resort)
