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.

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!

First off, this is a beautiful setting on the marina. I thought the prices were quite reasonable. Husbands fish and chips were excellent. I tried the mussel sampler. Loved the different flavors but the mussels were small and chewy. Wish I would have been able to try the Mussel Pot for a comparison.

When you're in the "Green Mussel Capitol of New Zealand", you order green mussels. The menu said a kilo of green mussels, so we did. They were delicious. Topped off with a wonderful, mouth-watering dessert of "chocolate delight". The service was excellent. Located near the water. Eat either inside or out.

Good coffee and the staff were friendly. Evening meal was good although wines by the glass not so good. View and the ability to dine outside was a highlight.

Located alongside the boat launching ramp there's never a dull moment!! Location is great and with all the doors fully open on a sunny day makes for relaxing dining. Menu was comprehensive, well priced and seafood we chose was nice and fresh.

Following a recommendation from our Motel owner, we stopped off at the Slip Inn prior to investigating the most spectacular Queen Charlotte drive. On a beautiful sunny summer afternoon, the setting beside the Marina was great, and the service prompt and friendly. My wife had the fish and chips, and commented that they were the best she has ever had... More
