Bon Accord Bar & Bistro


Out on Kawau we continue to struggle to get enough staff on the island to run a 7 day/12 hour operation (due to the change in visa regulations mainly/labour market restrictions)...and have changed our opening hours to be able to manage this situation and to give us the opportunity to provide the best service possible.  

It’s been a great summer - let’s hope the warm weather continues.  There are
always blankies available for those cooler evenings.
A new seasonal menu is now up and running..we hope you like it...

See you all again soon!
