Advised by our motel owner that this will be v good seafood. We had the platter - excellent fresh food cooked in front if you - whitebait fritters, crayfish fritter and paua fritter with tasty fish, mussels and scallops. And salad, rice, and nice bread. Boxed it for us to eat in our motel - think we missed out on... More

Found it by accident...affordable and lovely setting...the seafood chowder was great...the paua (abilone elsewhere) pattie was a bit bland...needs more seasoning...everything looks great on the grill...too bad we had such a late lunch! Will go back before we leave to try the crayfish and scallops!

On the way back we went to the seal colony and went past this place. I called in to see what... More

It may be the 1st choice of affordable seafood in Kaikoura. It opens from 10am until they sold out all stocks, definitely no late than 6pm. It looked too many Chinese customers made the young Chinese waitress pretty depressed. What a poor girl.

Nothing like crayfish on the beach. Of all the places in Kaikoura to enjoy crayfish this is the best value for the money. Also the least expensive. Friendly staff. Fast service. Worth it!

Scallops and fritters were truly excellent. This place is just a kiosk along the side of the road towards the seal colony. Just a few tables, and you compete with the sea gulls for the food. Watch out--they'll steal it right off the table while you're eating! Great for a lunch on a nice day. While we were eating, a... More

Fresh, fresh and tasty seafood BBQ!! It so popular that sometimes you need to wait patiently to get your order but it is worthy! We loved it so much that we returned there the next day!
