Bill and I dined at this restaurant a few months ago, the service and food was excellent, the christmas decorations were out of this world in terms of quality, visually appealing and tastefully displayed. The food was fresh, locally scoured with a selection of fresh vegetables.. We don't dine out often as we have a good kitchen at home. But... More

This is a top class restaurant that is a must do if you wish to dine out in Picton. It is cosy, romantic and very professional on all counts. I had the lamb special and my wife the roast of the day. We were amazed at the generous portions served with plenty of in season vegetables and succulent melt in... More

My husband and I had a stellar three course meal here. He had steak, I had fish, and our food was outstanding. The service is leisurely but sensitive, the appointments were stellar and the views were terrific. The entire meal was a great experience, and the pricing was very very good. This is a quiet, romantic, and lovely restaurant with... More

There is not a lot of choice in Picton, but this is one of the best. There are windows facing Picton Marina and windows facing Picton harbour & Queen Charlotte Sounds - so I would advise reserving a table next to the window for the lovely views. We visited on a Tuesday evening and there was only one other couple... More

Really handy location only a few minutes stroll from the restaurants, shops and waterfront. We had two rooms here for one night. Good sized rooms and amenities.

I love a good steak, and theirs is cooked to perfection, served with prawns and scallops. (I recommend the green pepper sauce, but ask if you can have it on the side, in a little dish!)Warning, the chef at Beachcomer Inn serves VERY GENEROUS portion sizes, so think twice, before ordering the Cheese, bacon & thyme bread as a starter,...
