Become part of the family at this cosy dining room, where a passion for great food, coffee and community is evident in every detail.

The Beach Bistro is the brainchild of culinary couple Anita and Steve. Having spent years searching for the perfect spot to start their own cafe, they discovered a building right on the beach that burst with potential. After much help from friends and family, they turned their dream into a reality, and in February 2012 Beach Bistro was born.

Just a glance of their menu and the story behind the food becomes a delight to read. Anita uses only the highest quality produce to create exquisite flavour combinations, offering a simple selection of mouthwatering meat, fresh fish, seasonal pasta and gourmet pizza, with vegetarian dishes made to order.

From sophisticated food to heartwarming hospitality, expect to be treated as guests in Anita and Steve’s very own home, with a personal touch palpable on every level. Available for dinner from Thursday - Saturday, be sure to grab their early bird table before it’s too late.

Currently offering simple summer fare with a selection of salads, a Main du jour and a range of most delectable & epicurean pizzas including a divine Chocolat pizza for dessert.

What a wonderful dining experience! Such attentive and friendly service - we were made to feel like royalty thank you so much.
Our wine was first class and we had such fun watching it being aerated and the difference in taste explained - fascinating! The food is delicious. Artisan pizzas and lovely slow cooked beef rib - although our children 8 and 11 probably didn't appreciate the epicurean experience as much as the adults in the group. They loved the chocolate pizza but I'm not sure I'd order it again as we are not a very big sweet-eating family and it was extremely rich and sweet.
Thank you for a memorable and cosy dining experience!

Could not have been better. Superb service with the right amount of attentiveness from the host. The summer menu was small but everything we ate was top notch, from the shared starters that included the most delicious duck liver pate, coated brie balls and caprese salad. Mains were scallops cooked at the table and a selection of pizzas that had amazing depth of flavour. We even indulged in a chocolate pizza for dessert alongside a wonderful Tarte Tatin.
I'd rush back even at full price, it was that good.

Really enjoy the little restaurant, foods are very delicious and service is suuuuuuuuuuper good. Must try the beef as appetizer, chef will cook it beside your table, so interesting. Portions are huge, doesn't have chance to taste the pizza, will try next time: )

Not our first time at Beach Bistro and won't be our last.
The food and service are always fun and exciting, and the view is to die for.

Been hearing a lot of great reviews about this place -- the food, atmosphere, and location. What I did not expect though was the excellent service by the owner and his staff. They were very welcoming and I just loved hearing how this place started and all.

Aside from that, the food was cooked to perfection, unlike anything I've ever tasted before. The Roast Turkey Flambé Scallops, which were cooked right in front of us, were my instant favorites. Topping everything off was a glass of Pinot Gris that complemented the taste of these dishes. Probably the best food I've ever tasted yet in my whole stay here in New Zealand.

Fantastic experience, everything top notch. Steve was the absolute best server ever experienced as he was unobtrusive, understood everything we requested or mentioned and his manner was exceptionally cheerful, helpful and professional. Loved the flambe prawns which were not only spectacularly cooked, but were the best ever tasted. Our mains were chicken provencal and hapuka, the fish of the day. Plentiful and very delicious. Sticky date pudding also good.

From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were made to feel special.
The service with top notch and the food was excellent.
We loved the traditional french dishes with a slight modern touch. I'd recommend the South island Gravlax it was so delicious.
The food presentation, quality, which is all locally sourced, together with the serving sizes made it not only value for money but put this bistro up there with other high class restaurants.
It's so nice to support local bistro's that are doing something special and this place is definitely a little gem not to be missed.
Thank you for a wonderful evening we will be returning.

Loved the Beach Bistro! The food was truly delicious and plenty of it. I especially loved the salmon gravlax. My lamb tagine was full of flavour and my husband said his Hapuka was wonderful too. We will definitely go back.
