“Catch the chance for yummy smoked fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We looked for the Smoking Company when we came to Coromandel. First we expect a big shop with big facilities in reality the shop is very small... BUT what you can buy there is really delicious. From mussel to smoked eel to kingfish to orange roughy mackerel. Fresh smoked fish for reasonable money. Buy it and look for a shadow place to enjoy.

“Don't get too carried away”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

I think that people on holiday will write more favourably about a place than if it is their day to day haunt. This place was fine, it has a lot of smoked seafood. A couple of the options were better than the others, e.g. kingfish, roe (if you eat it). I have had better salmon from the supermarket pre-packed ones, some of the cuts we got had overly chewy tough pieces, I guess it's a lot less processed than what you'd buy from the shops. Also it is overpriced.

“Yummy stop in a beautiful area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

Travelling around the Coromandel we made a stop here for some mussels and the smoked kingfish and orange roughy. Delicious! Smoked eel is an acquired taste... Driving around the edge of the peninsula was also gorgeous, so doubly worth the trip.

“A must stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

Stopped for many smoked treats from fish to prawns and scallops. Cheeses and so many choices, especially the killer chillie chips.

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

We stopped by on our way back to Auckland to try some of these famous smoked mussels and ended up trying all of them plus some scallops and shrimps.
Great service and great smoked seafood! Will definitely suggest a stop here before venturing further in the Cormandel Peninsula.
