About Paper Moon

Paper Moon is undisputedly Mairangi Bay’s favourite dining and drinking spot. Be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or drinks into the evening, we’re the place that pleases. It’s our passion to create the perfect occasion.

We’ve had much praise heaped on us and we love it! Our simply named ‘Beans and Bacon Breakfast’ won us the Watties New Zealand Cafe of the Year title, and our Beef Wellington has customers raving and returning regularly. This is, of course, merely the tip of our culinary iceberg...

Everyone loves a Happy Hour and ours is every day, from 3-6pm. So it’s actually a Happy Three Hours. (We’re good like that!) Bringing you house wines for $5.90, and beers for $6.90 makes us happy too!

Feel special with a cocktail special on Wednesday nights - they’re only $10.

Our coffee is Allpress. Enough said. Except to say that our staff are actually trained on site and off by Allpress as well.

We aim to please our many four-legged friends too here - water bowls outside ensure its not only the humans who enjoy some refreshment. Our staff love dogs, so you can be sure they’ll be doted on and shown lots of love!

And, with or without dog, it’s always nice to take a wander to the beautiful beach we’re blessed to have just a short walk down the road. We think one of our takeout Kapiti ice-creams compliments a beach walk nicely too...

This is all good, we know, but don’t take our word for it!

Come and raise a glass with us soon at Paper Moon.

We were disappointed that there was no sweet option for brunch eg. Pancakes, French Toast, Waffles. However, those that had the Full Moon breakfast rated highly.

First set of chairs for the table we were presented with were very uncomfortable however our host was most than happy to swiftly move us to a new table. We only had 1 other hiccup with a forgotten drink which wasn’t far away once we followed up. Food is ALWAYS perfect! Never had a bad meal. Beautiful food, serve is incredible, atmosphere is lovely. Always a great night. Thank you!!

Awesome meals once again, this is our favourite restaurant for quality meals and lovely service. Had the best snapper I have had in a long time for freshness and super light crispy batter was SO good!! One of the other meals was the steak special - again delicious tender and perfectly cooked. Will definitely be coming back soon.

Food was lovely - initially thought dinner menu was limited but varied. However, upon ordering dessert, disappointed to discover on reverse side of dessert menu sheet an additional menu ''Bar Snacks'' with alot more choices and lower price point. We were never offered this menu when we sat down ... so I would recommend going there - and will go again - however, ASK for the extra Bar Snacks menu to look at as well

We felt a bit neglected when we arrived. We had to ask our waitress for menu's, as she assumed we had come for the Sunday Roast Dinner. Our orders took longer than normal, because the kitchen was really busy with the Sunday Roast special.

Asked for a quiet table, but was right in the middle of noisy area with a child in a highchair next to us who threw metal cutlery around constantly. Not exactly quiet! Also did not enjoy the Avo - strange flavours. Was also disappointed there was no pancakes on brunch menu.

I am following a strict Low Fodmap diet at the moment and the staff at Papermoon were amazing! They went out of their way to look into the diet requirements and did what they could to make sure I could eat a tasty meal. Thanks for the effort!!

The waitress took our order wrong. I had to eat my meal whilst the chef cooked my partners meal. She watched me eat. Then I watched her eat some 10 min later. I heard the other table received 2 wrong meals as well. Waitress was not using a notebook to take the order down and thought her memory was better. But it wasn’t. Not sure if I can be bothered going back. It was supposed to be a nice night out as a couple but we were determined not to let this incident ruin a good night. Unprofessional really and in hindsight I should’ve sent my meal back so we could eat together. The food was excellent. I feel sorry for the chef

Terrific food and service, my visiting parents really enjoyed the experience. The atmosphere was fine, but it was surprisingly quiet for what we thought would be a busy Saturday night. The lighting seemed a little stark where we were sitting, but that's a very minor gripe. The desserts were divine. All round extremely good.
