    Default Nice eating places in Paraparam & Raumati??

    Hi. We are exploring our local restaurants / cafes, and wondered if anyone had any recommendations for reasonably-prices eating places in Paraparam Bch or Raumati Bch? Child friendly please, as opposed to 'posh'....

    We could perhaps start a thread of good family-oriented places to eat on the Kapiti Coast?

    Edited to add: Evening meals as well as daytime please!

    Cheers!

    We like the following:
    Rosetta Cafe - reasonable priced, fresh, ever changing menu (Rosetta Road)
    Lembas - Raumati South; casual decent food.
    Busy Bee - Raumati beach (near shops); was there Sunday and has cracking Chicken Fajitas for about 15 dollars; nice cakes also
    Pauls, Lindale - bit more 'posh restaurant' but fine with kids. Quiet though
    Mussel Boys - bit different and best if you like Mussels (they do other things also)
    Lakotas (Pram Beach) - OK; nice atmosphere
    Waterfront (Raumati Beach) - nice view and decent snacks. Main meals OK but restaurant section bit naff. Use it more as a pub
    Ranjoli (sp?) Indian - only done takeways and seems to be going down hill a bit recently

    The thai down in Prma beach (opposite Lakotas) has a very good rep but not been

    I'll second Coast2Coast. Nice cafe and pizzas.

    (Dine Out is good for restaurant reviews if you haven't seen it.)

    Thanks everyone. Keep ' em coming

    There's a nice (new-looking) pizza place on the main street in Waikanae, Heaven's Wood Fired pizza (no website). Takeaways, and absolutely delicious!

    Has anyone tried the Cambodian restaurant in Waikanae?

    Cheers,
    Jane

    We ate at the Heaven's Woodfire Pizza that Lara Croft mentioned. It was tasty, and the owners are nice. (They do gluten free. They will also do dairy free.) Here's the menu --

    LaraCroft - yes, we've eaten takeout from Prah Ta Pang (Cambodian place) several times. Everything has been fine, with fresh produce and made quickly. There's a little bit of a sweet tamarind flavor in most dishes (or most of the vegetarian ones at least) that I don't care for, but I think that's just the style of food, and my OH likes it.

    We've eaten at the "Rock Salt Bistro" on Waimea Rd (Waikanae Beach) a few times, and love it there!

    Dinner for 3 costs around $100, but the service is great, friendly staff, and yummy food! They also have a kids menu and are very accomodating.

    Definitely recommend it!
