Dear Guest,
The directive of the NZ government is that hospitality venues are required to ensure that all guests aged 12 years 3 months and over are double vaccinated from 03/12/21 until further notice.

Proof of vaccination (or official exemptions) will be required at the point of entry until NZ Health mandates that hospitality venues may welcome unvaccinated guests.

CLICK + COLLECT – We are currently not offering Click + Collect as we need time to organise how we will manage this under the Traffic Light system.




Flatwhite has been an iconic part of the Waihi Beach community for over 16 years. In 2015 we underwent a massive reconstruction resulting in a stunning, absolute beachfront restaurant. We overlook the ever-changing ocean, with views straight out to Tuhua (Mayor) Island.

Our restaurant operates 361 days of the year, closing only for Staff Appreciation (2 days in winter) and Christmas & Boxing Day.

Our main beachfront room also operates as a wedding venue. We run amazing weddings and can assist you to have a spectacular event.

We are open 7 days from 8am til late.


Our lunch menu is available from 8am till 2:45pm. Our snack menu is available from 3.30pm through to our dinner menu which is available from 5pm.

Cabinet food is available from 8am through till 5pm.

We don’t take bookings for breakfast or lunch, just come on in and we will look after you. However, we strongly recommend dinner bookings.

Phone us on 07 863 1346 or book via our online booking system on our website.
