True to its name, the Waterfront Bar & Kitchen occupies a prime location plum on Kapiti’s
beautiful coastline at Raumati Beach. Views from
generous decks stretch over the sand south to Mana Island, across to the hills and fords of the
Marlborough Sounds and around to the unmistakable silhouette of Kapiti Island. Directly in front,
the beach itself is a hive of activity – on any given day you can see people flying kites, horse
riding, boating, fishing, kayaking or taking a therapeutic stroll or swim.
The Waterfront has a relaxed, beachside feel to both the restaurant and bar areas. Some fantastic
locally crafted works are on display including a giant kina shell which fills the overhead space
above the bar. A favourite with the locals, the Waterfront plays host to the Raumati Sports Fishing
Club and lists competition winners beneath a marlin leaping out from the roll of honour.
The Waterfront serves delicious meals and is open for brunch, lunch and dinner. The range on
offer includes fresh seafood, tasty steaks and locally sourced produce. The accompanying wine list
offers an excellent selection. The atmosphere is lively, relaxed and friendly, in keeping with the
beachside holiday feel. The Waterfront owners have created a place where customers can come and just
‘hang out’ and soak up the sea air. Families are welcome. The staff are friendly and attentive
and quick to share their knowledge of the local region with visitors.
There is an emphasis on good live music at the Waterfront. Some of New Zealand’s best known
bands and solo artists are often on the agenda and the place is packed out with enthralled
The Waterfront is the perfect place to take your friends and family, enjoy the unparalleled views
and indulge in some fabulous food and wine.
