An exciting social space over the stunning Bay of Islands.

Alongside All Day Dining, Paihia, Bay of Islands

Alongside is an exciting social space situated over the water in the stunning Bay of Islands. There is no place quite like it in Northland and we are proud to be different! While there is an overall laid back, casual feel to the huge decked area, its style and touch of class, makes it the perfect place to get together with friends and family for a relaxed bite to eat and a drink to cool down in the beautiful winterless North.

Food & Drink

Our menus have all been designed to complement the superb location and views over the bay. We serve Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. We are lucky enough to have our fish line caught by local fisherman here in Northland and have it delivered fresh daily ensuring our catch of the day is fresh and tasty.
