This was the second visit for 2 of us 4, and again the food was delicious and the service very attentive. Their sorbets for dessert are just amazing, would love a plate with some of every one of them on.

Peppered squid entree and my tiramisu was lovely with nice presentation. Lamb shanks were nice but meat n verge were thrown on a plate. Actual restaurant cafe could do with makeover. Great service from guys there.

Nice home style meal at a great price! Would definitely go again. Was surprised they weren’t busier actually. Waiter was so friendly and attentive and food came quick- can’t ask for much more especially for the awesome price- would recommend.

We had a great meal and the food was perfect. From fish & chips to steak & also lamb shanks. All were greatly enjoyed and the dessert was divine. The service we couldn't fault at all. The guy was very helpful, pleasant and had a lovely smile. Would definitely go back. Loved it

The service was impeccable, waiter made sure that all of our needs were met. Salt and pepper squid was probably the yummiest I have ever had, and the desserts were delish!!

The staff were very friendly and polite, but they came over a LOT to our table. Some space to just enjoy would be nice. The food was very prompt, and was well presented. Overall good value for money and definitely glad we went, though would try somewhere else next time.

What a hidden gem! We went as a first table family and it was amazing. Massive meals, which were reasonably priced and beautifully cooked. We all had something different and everything was done to perfection. Lovely, friendly service. We would definitely go again. Best meal in a long time

Great location, super attentive staff - it helped that we were the only customers lol, The menu was nice and compact and the food was delicious if a little salty but a nice generous serving. The mixed veges looked like the ones I serve from the freezer but still very nice. Keen to revisit and try to other menu options.

We overall had a really good experience at Bright Cafe! We were seated next to a heater (as quiet a large restaurant) so was really nice to come in from the horrible weather and be cosy. We had salt and pepper squid as a starter, which came with a massive side salad which had lots of avo-yum yum! My husband had the lamb shank and I had the pork belly. Although the meat was cooked to perfection, the massive bed of Veges underneath both our meals were simply frozen vege which was a little surprising to say the least. The lamb shank came with mash as well which was really yummy. I had the creme brûlée for desert which was really good. Overall drink and food prices were cheap in comparison to most restaurants in Whangarei. The service throughout the night was superb! Would go back but maybe ask for different sides next time.
