Unfortunately there are very few restaurants opened at night, in Picton, during the winter months. This restaurant was opened every night, even on the quiet ones and presented great sea food dishes at a very reasonable price. We went on a Friday night, happy hour drinks are all $5 each, which i can assure you is a bargin in Picton.... More

We went to this cafe for dinner. The wooden chairs on the concrete floor made quite a scraping sound when moved. I ordered lamb Wellington. It was nice, but not WOW. I felt it was a bit overpriced for the meal I got. The pastry on the lamb wellington was soft and not crispy. It does seem it was microwaved... More

Transferring from Picton to Wellington, got a complementary drink voucher from Aquarium down the ferry terminal, nice gentlemen there recommended this place to me and saying food is wonderful. He is absolutely right! By the way, the Aquarium is a nice place to visit as well especially if you got stuck on your journey by ferry due to rough weather.... More

A great meal, excellent service and atmosphere. My husband was stoked that they even had the rugby on but it was on mute (much to my relief).

Everything about the food and service was top notch, the Gateway Motel give you a recommendation card for Cortado and you either get a free wine/beer. Great stuff.
