Food was devine and went down a treat. The desert was delicious and great to have it heated by an oven and not a microwave. Highly recommended great venue.

We went for supper having booked into a motel in Picton. Great meal and enjoyable ambience from the boat / yacht club members.

My family and I ate here for dinner. All of our meals were delicious (we had two burgers, a salad and steak between us.) There was lots of variety on the menu and there was something for everyone. The drinks were good and as were the deserts. The owner was very friendly. Its a pleasant view looking into the harbour... More

Family consisting of 4 adults and 1 9 yr old child, we enjoyed a very nice meal here and will certainly be returning. The child's meal was a good size with added benefit of a drink and an ice cream included in price. Adults had 4 different meals and certainly had no complaints. When we arrived the locals who use...

We have a holiday home in Waikawa and have been here several times over the years, each time we come we try and support this business as we love the location, however every time we go we are disappointed with the food, and the service. We have given this place many chances yet it always seems to under deliver. What... More

Had a good steak & salad here on a stormy summer evening. Very warm welcome, good range of food, beers & wine & nice comfortable interior. Very handy for if you're involved with the marina, reasonably priced & free wifi for customers.

We were 3 families with kids together for a drink and snacks then possibly dinner. We left after bar snacks and a couple of drinks. The staff try to seem friendly and helpful, but they're just not. The location is great, but not enough to keep us there.

We went here for tea, waited over an 1hour for a pizza, staff we're rude, and not welcoming. The only thing that was great was the view! unfortunately that why they were busy as no competition. Would not recommend

I don't normally review anything, however, this annoyed me. I can't tell you what the food is like , probably average, but as I write this, it is an hour and a half into our wait, I am past hungry. The man at the bar is gruff and unapologetic. My partner asked for some chips to tide us over, Gruffy... More
