A beachy getaway in the tropical paradise that is Paihia, The Blue Door is your portal to uninterrupted views of the ocean and locally inspired eats.
Where will The Blue Door lead you to this time? Prepare to be bowled over by this particular corner of The Bay of Islands as this eatery leads you to one of the most mesmerising views. Perched above the coast with an elegant patio that seamlessly merges with the endless horizon, The Blue Door is where new appreciation for the ocean is found, where the city is left far far behind, and where diners can indulge all five senses.
Peruse the menu to the accompaniment of the lapping sea. Whether you're joining them for a spot of lunch or supper, begin your meal with a crisp white wine and pair that with some small plates to warm up your appetite. With the sea mere metres away, you can only imagine how fresh their seafood chowder, prawn bites and Kawakawa oysters are.
The bigger plates delve into the New Zealand kitchen with hearty meals that nourish the body and soul. From towering burgers that encase juicy brisket and crispy fried chicken to braised lamb shank, ribeye steak and fish and chips, these classics never get old. Alternatively, if you're looking for something more exotic, a helping of Asian-style beef cheeks of soba noodles should do the trick. And once everything is eaten and drunk, allow the view to do its magic.
