A Chance Encounter

it was literally a dark and stormy evening when we chanced upon the Seabreeze Café. Found the service to be good and the food even better. The menu had a broad selection of options with a wine list that was similar. Even though the cafe was busy our orders were taken punctually and each course... read more

we came here for brunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had had the eggs benedict with bacon - it was amazing! Their smoothies are really good too. My husband had the full breakfast one day which was all good (apart from the sausages, which really let it down), and the poached eggs and bacon the next day which he also... More

Enjoyed lunch and wine at this wonderful cafe right on the foreshore. Excellent location to sit up at the bar leaner in the bar with a glass of wine and look down the harbour and out to the Marlborough Sounds. Great coffee as well. Awesome staff and mine host Jules offered us assistance with our wine choices.

I have often been critical of reviewers who review places that are closed because how do you know what it is like if it is closed. But this place is in a prime position on the waterfront at Picton and when we got there around 2pm we were told the kitchen was closed and we could only get things in... More

My wife and I called into this establishment after disembarking from the Interislander last Saturday. After viewing the menu board I immediately wanted the mussels and my wife selected a different dish. We sat outside and took in the fabulous view down Queen Charlotte sound while we waited for our lunch. When our meals were brought outside the aroma of... More

The seabreeze is beautifully set close to the harbour. We went twice, once for dinner (two fish dishes) and once for breakfast (muesli with joghurt). The staff was very friendly and attentive and we enjoyed our meals. In comparison to other restaurants in Picton, we liked this one most and did already recommend it to other travelers.

We stopped in for a quick coffee and snack, the service was fast and friendly and the coffee was great. The view are beautiful and I wish we had longer to enjoy them.
