Zane Grey’s Restaurant & Bar

Food & Drink

Perfectly situated on Paihia's waterfront in the stunning Bay of Islands, Zane Grey's Restaurant and Bar celebrates everything there is to love about Northland. We have casual all day dining at The Dock or refined evening dining at The Aquarium.

We have two beautiful dining areas at our restaurant. We have The Dock and The Aquarium which both have their own unique style and beauty. 

The Dock

Sit back and relax over the water at The Dock, capturing the true Bay of Islands vibe. Take in the view, lunch under a sun shade or be dazzled by the stars with an evening cocktail. 

Our walk up bar is fully stocked and serving delicious breakfast, lunch and casual dinners. No forward bookings required - just drop in and relax! We also offer a range of private hire and function options and would love to help you host your next event. 

The Aquarium

Dive into dining decadence at The Aquarium restaurant. Enjoy a refined evening, with our select seasonal menu accompanied by fine wines, all served alongside our signature waterfront views. 

Whether a romantic table for two, a family dinner party or a private function, celebrate with us in style - whatever your occasion.We recommend booking your table at The Aquarium in advance.

We also have an aquarium right in the centre of our restaurant. Our 66,000L aquarium is the largest in Northland and it takes pride of place in our aptly named restaurant. 

​Home to a range of beautiful fishy friends, you can learn about our underwater residents with matching photos and interesting descriptions of each species. With new fish added regularly, each time you visit, you should see something new!

It's free to come in and visit the aquarium - a must see when in Paihia!
