“What it says on the tin!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Its the Mussel Kitchen so go for the mussels. They say they cultivate collect and cook their own mussels and I can believe that, The grilled platter was 12 mussels cooked in 4 different sauces - they tasted fresh and very good. The mussel chowder was the best chowder I have eaten for a long time and once again the freshness came through. It's a cafe with outside tables so recommended for lunch rather than a formal dinner.

“such a cool eatery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

This is a must stop if you are in town. A great outdoor area to relax in, perfect for summer. It gets really busy, but staff seem to cope. We did wait a little while for our meals but hey, when you are on holiday, does it really matter!!! Food is great and fresh and service is good.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

We had lunch and the mussels are the best we have ever had and I love mussels. The mussel pot with creamy garlic sauce and the grilled mussels were our choice. We had more than we needed but loved them. Yummy

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Ordered the Kopake – garlic, cream, bacon and parmesan mussel pot, it was beautiful. Amazing flavors, and the mussels were big and meaty and more importantly FRESH.
Was able to try my partners mussel pot as well, the Manaia – Thai green curry with lime and coconut cream. Once again amazing with just the right amount of spice.

For only $17 dollars it was such an amazing meal, and locally sourced!

“Thought I didn't like mussels 'til I tried these!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

Got a mixed platter of a dozen with 4 different styles. All were great and we couldn't finish the platter. Rolling lawns, live music, excellent service.
