My husband and I had brunch here on the weekend whilst waiting for our ferry, I was looking forward to it as my husband has eaten here before and enjoyed it. The first thing I must comment on is that I asked for a small bottle of lindauer, the girl bought it to the table, unopened, with a glass, then... More

This is one of many cafes and restaurants in Picton. We had a nice breakfast which was pretty good value for money.

My number three for dinner. My number one if my espresso machine breaks down. Love the ambience. . .I haven't been here in a long time and I think that I'll have to take an old friend back since the facelift of both the restaurant and the menu. More later

I was told this place recently changed management. I had a very tasty seafood combination platter. It wasn't cheap but it was worth every penny . Its also on the water front. It has some interesting tables outdoors with a fire in the centers of the tables, but I sat inside beside it was cool. I got a free glass... More

We had been travelling over 24 hours and werev rather tired. We went into the cafe and ordered three thin crust pizza's that were fantastic quality. The cafe is in a great location near the end of town with views onto the water.

Visited twice in the last week, once for brunch and once for a light lunch. When we visited in 2014 we were not overly impressed...but wow...things have changed. The staff were extremely attentive and the service was excellent. The food was delightful. We had poached eggs, bacon and mushrooms for breakfast. Service was quick and the food was delicious and...

We enjoyed our breakfast at one of the outdoor tables. Great view sitting in the sun. The granola was perfect. Great mix of grains and nuts and the fresh fruit was very enjoyable . Great coffee

The service was friendly but the food was the worst we've had in New Zealand on our trip. Fajitas were over-seasoned. Pork belly completely saltless and the ceviche was awful. What is supposed to be a cold dish of raw fish cured in lemon was cooked fish in mayonnaise that was served on a hot plate and tasted like it... More
