The Front Room


Owner & Chef Craig McBrearty provides the culinary experience, having worked with top chef Peter Gordon in London, and at restaurants in Europe and the United States.

Co-owner & Manager Hilary Bowen is passionate about providing great service to complement the food that is based on fresh local produce.

The Front Room offers what Craig describes as “modern/contemporary” cuisine, with a brunch menu from 8.30am-3pm and lunch from 11.30am-3pm. Between 3pm and dinner, you can relax with a wine or beer and enjoy an antipasto platter. Dinner is from 5.30pm till late.

The menu reflects the Front Room’s location: Waikanae Beach. One of the dinner specialties, the Waikanae crab, is caught by local fishermen only a stone’s throw away. 

The Front Room is fully licensed and offers a BYO wine option on Sundays and Mondays.
