No longer a restaurant - a historic place I thinnk! I cannot say anything about food and all as it was closed when we were there - it didn't look as if they were to open soon again... I just had a BYO beer and remembered the place ten years ago.

We stopped in just before the Echo opened this morning, they offered us coffee to have there or takeaway(we were a bit cheeky arriving so early! but did stay and what a view from the top deck, oh nice coffee too).

This cafe/bar is a boat - such character! Harbour views from the deck. Good young staff with range of beverages. We had a family meal so I can't comment on the cafe food.

Once place is renovated and food improved this will be a great place-get rid of fried food. Nice setting looking over the marina and great historical information.

A New Zealand scow lovingly restored by the owners with a very good atmosphere - loads of maritime artefacts to keep you busy while waiting for the freshly cooked food. We had pre dinner drinks and snacks up on deck looking right over Picton Harbour. The food was simple but excellent and there was a reasonable selection of beers and... More

Our meals and drinks were fairly priced and delicious, and the old schooner has so much character with memorabilia displayed throughout the cafe and well stocked bar (promoting local beer & wines). The owners, Tim (who's bar chief and the cook) and his wife Denise are freindly and genuinely interested in looking after their customers and take great pride in... More
