A sunny tap house overlooking Half Moon Bay's promenade.

Directly overlooking Half Moon Bay's promenade, Richard Cooke and Gina Henry's sunny tap house is down-to-earth home cooking with the touch of refinement necessary to keep you placed in the cheerful patio all afternoon.

The restaurant site provides a beautiful light-filled space overlooking the boats that fill the marina. A contemporary dining room, casual bar area with a large communal table and shaded outside seating. Well-executed sharing plates compliment the New Zealand wine list, craft beer offerings and bespoke cocktails — all of which can be worked off later courtesy of Grangers' free bike hire, designed to encourage patrons to explore more of this beautiful area.

Also located in the waterfront institution is Marina Cantina, an eatery serving a contemporary take on Mexican cuisine. Think fries loaded with pulled pork and queso cheese, snapper ceviche, and bottomless Mexican feasts.
