Food, fun, art and music centered in the beautiful Flaxmill Bay
  • Dining
  • Cooks Beach

Located  at beautiful Flaxmill Bay next to Cooks Beach, a short ferry ride from Whitianga with a free pick up at night or a lovely 15min walk.

Since 1998, when we first opened, we have tried to create a cultural centre where not only your tastebuds will be satisfied with good food, but also your sight with painting and sculpture, your hearing with the best live music, your smell from the open kitchen and if it’s touch you are after I’m sure we can organise a shoulder massage!

We have local, national and international musicians, films, poetry, afternoon concerts, art exhibitions, an annual sculpture symposium and more. But of course our food is the heart of our business.

We use local food and suppliers, are organic where possible, have vegetarian and gluten free options and are open for brunch from 9am till 3pm, or just pop in for a coffee and cake. We have top class dinner from 6pm.

Open October - March
