Where the kaimoana is fresh, sustainable & local.
Where our aim is to give diners a unique gastronomic experience.
At Schnappa Rock Restaurant and Bar we pride ourselves in using local produce to provide diners with a “Pacific” orientated eating experience in a relaxed atmosphere.
Placed on the shoreline of the picturesque Tutukaka Harbour, the restaurant is a unique Fale style building with ample dining seating and a spacious bar.
Established in 1992 by Pete and Tina Vink, Schnappa Rock is now one of the icons of the community, a place where locals mix and mingle with international tourists and the Kiwi holiday makers, who flock to the area to experience the world renowned Poor Knights diving waters, and classic New Zealand beaches.
Schnappa Rock is the perfect venue for the post-dive-trip drinks and dining evening, a quiet drink, romantic meal, family celebration or the company function.
Come and join hosts Nick and Esther, a welcoming staff and head chef Kurt Morgan, for an experience you will not forget.
A trip to the winterless north is not complete without the Schnappa Rock experience.
