“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

My husband an I ate here on the way from Picton to Nelson. The food and the service was great! We took a stroll on the docks to stretch our legs afterwards. A bit pricey ($46 for breakfast) but we would recommend it!

“Lovely location.”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Great meal but service a little slow. Waiters stood around in huddled conversation at times, and once we had our meal they did at no time come back to our table to ask if everything was OK. Caramel sundae for desert was simply Devine, and eaten in front of fire finished off evening on a high note. Would return.

“Great views & food”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

Good fish & chips and delightful sitting outside overlooking the water. My salmon salad had a little too much dressing on it to suit me, but that may be a matter of taste.

“Great food with a lovely setting.”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Called in here for the green lip mussels and weren't disappointed! Husband wanted the mussels and really enjoyed them. I asked for a mixture of two dishes and the result was super. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Recommended for excellent service, great food and beautiful location!
