Be careful with the seagull! They may share your delicious food if you are not aware! I like the way how the crayfishs are cooked!

After reading reviews on places to get crayfish in Kiakoura we opted for this place for lunch, and we weren't disappointed! My partner and I shared a $79 crayfish between us. It came with rice, side salad and garlic butter. Im not a fan of garlic, but absolutely loved it! Plenty of choice on the menu if you don't fancy... More

We had just worked up a great appetite walking the Peninsula Walkway Scenic Reserve, and stopped by this great little seafood shack. We already heard about them back home, and were super pleased that they were so easily found. The crays were fresh and tasty, absolutely delicious barbequed; the meal made even better by the bright sun shining and the... More

So me and my wife have visited kaikoura 3 times in the last 3 years and each stay we have tried to get crayfish at the famous nin bins. However despite the Facebook advert "open 7 days a week..." It has never been open in 6 separate visits. This time as the weather was too rough to get crayfish apparently,... More

We found this place on route to see the seals. The crayfish fritter and garlic scallops had great taste and were great price. Lovely lunch by the sea.

Great price for crayfish! Nicely bbqed, juicy and sweet with rice and side salad. Seafood chowder was okay, but it was only five dollars!! Didn't get to try other menus and am looking forward to trying them all. View was okay hidden behind bushes, would've been nicer if there was place to wash hands. The beach was meant to be... More
