A taste of the Bay of Islands

Paihia Aquarium Restaurant

Come join the 35 Degrees South family right on Paihia's waterfront. 35° South Aquarium Restaurant & Bar is the perfect place to relax, recharge and unwind, with what we call a taste of Bay of Island's life. Enjoy dining above the water or grab a drink with us and enjoy stunning sea views. As a family owned and operated restaurant, with a strong connection to the region and the community of the Bay of Islands, we are delighted to welcome you to our place.

Food & Drink

Situated over the water in the Bay of Islands our menus had to be designed to complement our location and views over the water. Martin Bosley, NZ's most awarded chef & lover of all things seafood has put together a menu that highlights our local shellfish & line caught fish.
