“Surprisingly good little spot”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

We stopped here enroute to Mount Cook for a quick snack, and were drawn in by the outside bar tables in the sunshine.

Walking into the bar area we were worried we would have to settle for average pub style food. Looking closer we saw more delicatessen style food on offer - a lamb fill pastry, a chicken, asparagus and brie filo pastry and salmon and potato rosti were our choices. It was all very healthy and light - a very pleasant surprise.

Sitting outside in the sunshine made it all the more enjoyable.

“Fish and chips takeaway - could do better”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

I have stopped here before and dined in the restaurant and it was great. This visit we had fish and chips to take away on a Friday night. I had blue cod. Generous serving of fries and the blue cod was of average size for the price. What let it down was that the chips were stale and the blue cod was dripping in fat.

“The Blue Cod Burger that beats Fergburger hands down.”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

Awesome takeaways at Omarama, which is always a good place for a meal stop no matter in which direction you are travelling. The blue cod burger is way better than it has any right to be (the shop being so far from the sea!); the cod is served in a fresh non-soggy bun which also contains good traditional kiwi burger ingredients including lettuce, tomato sauce, mayonnaise and beetroot. I like it better than Fergburger's Codfather, and it's also better value at $9.50 (cf. $14.50). This is a busy, friendly takeaways and it's easy to see why.
