Recommended by Kent at Gateway Motel as a place to get good grub. Went in early after a day out dolphin watching and found ourselves alone with a piano player. Once ordered the other customers started to come in.

This is what I call a good honest Kiwi eatery that serves full hearty meals at a good price. Added bonus we got a discount for staying at the Gateway!

We ordered the burgers and the plate came full, well cooked and presented. Service was excellent.

Once the piano player ran out of tunes or steam a DJ started to set up for the evening. This may have stopped us using the place if we had been a little later but we enjoyed our stay whilst we were there.

Well worth a return visit when next in town.

I felt sorry for the dear old chap behind the counter. It took him an age to take our breakfast orders. So long that other customers walked out. They were very impatient, our breakfast arrived and the six of us all got what we ordered. The food was average. But hit the spot. I think I will try somewhere else for breakfast next time I'm in Picton.

We had breakfast, the man taking our order was very slow and took ages getting it sorted, the service was very slow and the food was just average, however the cook was a pleasant young fellow.

Nice little place on High Street. Decided to have a full NZ breakfast and it was OK for $16.20 with our room key discount from the Gateway Hotel. Would have been $18.00 otherwise. Only one egg, fatty bacon, musrhooms, 1 small tomato and one sausage. 1 piece of bread so thin that you could almost see through it and no jam to go with it. Think for that price they could add on another egg or sausage, Don't think it would break them. One advantage they have is, it's open at 4 a.m. Don't think I'd have a breakfast there again, just wanted to try one. A bit expensive! Think I'll wait to got back to Scotland where they know what a full breakfast is!!
