The Chart Room is a restaurant open to the public within the Royal Yacht Club hotel. Nor a huge amount of covers, and a limited menu. However, the dining area is very attractive, and well lit, with a variety of nautically themed items. There are three outside tables. As usual in NZ, pleasant... read more

The staff willingly accommodated a special dining time for us, remaining two hours after normal breakfast times. The meals were delicious, attractive and healthy. Great value and excellent service. We will return!

Loved breakfast! The eggs Benedict was fantastic, great chef! I heard it from a few of the locals too and it definitely was worth it :) little pricey but Picton isn't very cheap full stop.

Delicious, well cooked food and ample portions. The service was good and the restaurant imaginatively laid out following a boating theme. A little on the pricey side but we thought it was money well spent

Meal was ok but it took an hour to get it. Meal size for the entrees ordered were a little on small size. They had run out (at 6.30pm) of the seafood chowder. No contingency planning there. Didn't bother to go back for breakfast instead went into one of the cafes in town and had a great breakfast, served with... More

We stayed in the hotel and ate at this restraunt several times. The buffet breakfast is cheap but not special unless you value quantity over quality, but it wasn't terrible either. Dinner was consitently good. We tried several different things over the days and enjoyed all of them. Once we found Escape (see other review) we just ate at these... More

We had good service and fresh seafood. The rack of lamb was excellent as well. This is a slightly up-scale restaurant, but not too pricey. Very friendly staff.

It was our anniversary. The setting was casual but nice (but then they sat a couple with a baby right next to us...). Service was fine. I had flounder and it was OK but not great. My husband had chicken roulade with pesto and something. His was quite good. Dessert was very good.
