Drive down to Tutukaka after walking around Whangarei Falls and also seeing the Kauri trees. We ended up at Schnappa Rock for lunch. We sat outside and were lucky they had big umbrellas as it did rain a bit while we were there. However, it did not deter us from being outside and enjoying the sun when it was out.
The service here was very good and the food came out fast. I ordered the Mussel & Clam pasta which was really nice. It was simply cooked with fresh herbs. parmesan and chilli oil were added. The seafood was not overpowered and the parmesan gave a lovely flavour to the basic dish. My friend had the battered fresh fish burger and really enjoyed it. She commented how the coleslaw was not too creamy and the fish was cooked nicely.
