I was in New Zealand for a wedding back in February - and one of the highlights (aside from the wedding, obviously!) was this restaurant in Ohope Beach on the North Island. It had just opened that month, and in fact we found it randomly on Twitter, but tables were already booking up fast - especially out on the terrace, where the view was....well, you can see. Completely spectacular. The sprightly founder Tom, sources the fish from up the road and everything is deliciously fresh. We came back a few times ( the area is a bit restaurant-shy) and I reckon the best thing on the menu is the fish tacos, closely followed by the seafood laksa. Enjoy.
