Our Kitchen

Kawau Bay Kitchen - intimate Orewa Restaurant celebrates fresh, seasonal and local organic produce. We strive to bring you the freshest produce from the hard workers of the food industry whether it be fresh fish, hand reared meat or the adorning micro greens to finish the dish. Imogen and Jeremy are the new faces at Kawau Bay Kitchen and look forward to continuing the popular spot in Orewa with the same high standards and great times!

We use the ingredients to celebrate its individuality and create beautiful dishes in our Brunch, Lunch and Dinner menus for your enjoyment. We are open Wednesday – Sunday 5pm until late offering creative and delicious entrees, mains, desserts as well as a host of items ideal for sharing. New Zealand beer and wine are celebrated at Kawau Bay Kitchen and the range will take you from Central Otago to Northland with a few surprises on the list. Supreme Coffee and cocktails are available.
