Great Seafood Chowder

We went especially to have the seafood chowder, as one of our travel guides said it was the best in NZ. It was delicious and loaded with creamy seafood, served with crunchy Italian bread. Very filling and worth going for. Outside tables are available for warmer days. Service was good.

We arrived late so couldn't experience dinner, but had a very enjoyable cooked breakfast early before going scuba diving. Food was great and my cappuccino coffee as good as any coffee shop would serve! Great start to the day!

We had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. The food and service were excellent. The young staff were well trained, knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. The waitress ensured my dietary requirements were met.
