    Kingfish Lodge - in Whangaroa Harbour The Jewel of the North

    Last night we went to Kingfish Lodge for drinks and Dinner. It is nestled in a lovely cove in Whangaroa Harbour. 'Just turn left after you have come through the entrance'
    What a view. It is only accessible by boat or Helicopter. You can be picked up in the Lodge Water Taxi so this is not an obstacle 
    We have been there many times and the food is excellent. The Staff are very welcoming
    From the moment you enter you know they just want to look after you.

    There was going to be a bit of wait for dinner so the Bar menu came out and we ordered some Calamari.
    Delicious they were too lightly crumbed with a little Chili sauce plus Tartare on the side. Simple but tasty.

    Chef Paul cooks up a real treat. Garry had Crayfish Bisque, the rest of us ate the bread and dips, which came with some succulent smoked Marlin
    Garry and Dale ordered the Snapper
    Gorgeous Vege for the table, Little Cauliflower Croquettes, Beans and Roasted Cherry Tomatoes
    Sandra and I were wooed by the Armenian Poussin with little roast potatoes. Always a sucker for little chickens.
    Excellent flavour came served on a sizzling cast iron plate.

    Everything was just perfect.
    If you're up this way call them and book in. You wont be disappointed.
