In Gisborne – the largest coastal city in the Tairāwhiti region and a gateway to stunning beaches and camping spots on the East Coast – Breakers may have found its spiritual home. Gisborne’s Kaiti Beach is famous for being the place where British navigator Captain James Cook made his first landing in New Zealand onboard The Endeavour – and indeed, many a hungry traveller has since made landfall inside Breakers Gisborne searching for a decent feed.


Within walking distance of Tairāwhiti Museum and the city’s marina, Breakers Gisborne is a large open-plan restaurant catering for groups of any size, with the benefit of having a its own dedicated bar, pool table and seated outdoor are  located away from the main dining area. “Gizzy”, as it is affectionately known, is one of the fastest growing regions in the country so if you’re a new arrival, or even an old hand, be sure to pop in to see the Breakers Gizzy crew.
