Great seafood

We came for the crayfish but they were sold out. The ladies were very friendly. We ordered the seafood combo, fish special and the chowder which was very nicely done. Tons of food for the price! CASH ONLY

Had scallops, crayfish, mussels and seafood chowder. Apart from the soup being a bit cold, everything else was great. recommended to eat inside your cars. seagulls would be looking for opportunities otherwise!

Yep, we stopped out of curiosity and we will definitely return some day. We couldn't decide so we opted for the seafood platter and could not believe the amount of food they brought to our table. Coming from a land-locked state it was nice to get to try so much different seafood all in one place, and it was all... More

Even though we came before they packed up and closed, I'm extremely glad we decided to stop by to eat! From the moment they start cooking, the fragrance on the grill will get you hungry. The seafood was very fresh and the fritters were an absolute pleasure! The scallops and fritters are definitely the favourites and I would come back... More

I'd heard a lot about this place and was really keen to go there. It's a great concept and I applaud all their eco-initiatives. It was lovely to sit outside at a picnic table and enjoy the view. The seafood was OK but a bit meagre.

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

I had been there 5 years ago. Amazing that it is still there when I came back this Apr. I had tried my favorite crayfish again. Very delicious!
