Called in here on a Sunday lunchtime with friends from Picton after a trip around Queen Charlotte Sound. Beautiful day and a warm welcome from the staff; prompt service and very tasty, reasonably priced meals. Would definitely recommend and would go back again.

Classic ambience, 60's/70's music in background, friendly staff and patrons, easy walking distance from Bay Vista Motel (which also has excellent lodging). Setting is right on the bay with seating outside if desired. Highly recommend.

Right at the marina, although it was around 7.30pm & dark but still a really nice spot. We had their seafood chowder inside a cob loaf, it was delicious. Would highly recommend it.
