Last taste of South Island!

We took green mussels & fish'n'chips. The mussels with a creamy sauce (curry, ginger...) were delicious! I strongly recommend going there before going to the ferry!

Nice location and the food was very good and reasonably priced. They had a great outside sitting area and a varied menu.

We decided to breakfast at this cafe on the waterfront in Picton. Very busy cafe, but we weren't in any particular hurry. After getting through the queue, we ordered a couple of coffees and one big breakfast. We were told there would be a 15 minute wait. After 25 minutes our breakfast came out. I had specifically asked to get... More

Lovely wee spot on the corner of two roads, with the beach right in front. Definitely reminded my wife and I of the French Riviera. Great place to sit and watch the world go by. Food and service excellent. We couldn't find a better place in Picton to be honest, so gravitated there most of the time. Picton definitely worth... More

We had a meal here and were disappointed. It may of been a busy time of the year.... holiday season. But the meal took a very long time to come out. We ordered lamb racks, which was most disappointing, may be 4-5 bites of meat and it was finished. The rest of the meals were average. It is situated in... More

We didn't exactly order a huge lunch, just toasties and fries but the wait was over half an hour and they weren't that busy at the time we went in. There seemed to be a lot of staff and not much work being done, though the staff themselves are all very friendly.

The place to choose! They say if the cafe or restaurant is busy and it's hard to find a seat then you are making a good choice. So, with that in mind...try finding an empty table at the Seabreeze cafe and bar! Great food. Great service. And the view is delightful. The perfect place to eat, drink and daydream.

Fish cakes were a little dry, but the fish & chips were great. We sat outdoors and had to fight off the aggressive seagulls which are constantly pests around here, but enjoyed the sunshine and the ambiance. Service is excellent for this cafeteria-style café, although the food prep was a bit slow given there were not too many folks in... More

Service could have been better. Food was ok, chips were delicious. Not bad but not fabulous either. Great location, we sat outside and enjoyed being close to the water.
