Very poor experience at this establishment. Grumpy young person behind the counter even though the place was quiet, so no excuse of being busy. Ordered a custard slice, chips and friand with a tea and hot chocolate. Hot chocolate was horrible, very weak, friand was old and unedabile, chips undercooked. Custard slice was OK. Was shocked that we had to... More

I wish the owner of this restaurant would take notice of these reviews! The staff were unbelievably rude and unhelpful, we were made to feel like an inconvenience from the moment we walked in, we got our own menus and a server did not even approach our table once in fact our table had not even been properly cleaned we...

Ordered the special pizza + beer plus wedges. The pizza and beer were delivered quickly and were very good but the wedges never arrived despite asking waiting staff for them twice. Turned out they were cooked but not delivered. Poor service. A refund was made without issue but the wedges would have been nice.

So your restaurant choice is limited. This is a safe and average bet for no thrills food. We ate here for dinner and did have a table with a sea view which was great. The staff were also friendly and helpful. However the Food is just okay - nothing brilliant and not really memorable. Not convinced the Mussels were fresh... More

all we wanted was a coffee. none of the staff had a smile on their faces. there was little in the way of sweet counter food. considering this was a long weekend I thought it would have been better. service was slow. wouldn't go back here.

Great team who work here. Brilliant service. A tad slow at times, but I'm enjoying the sun and view, so no rush. Good value food, paid much more for other areas not as lovely or the same quality. Marked down because of the bird crap. Not nessesary the owners fault, but please tell customers not to feed the birds, your... More

Terrible service, took 45 minutes for food to arrive and then it was all lukewarm and not at all nice.

They were closing and said if we are quick they could do a choice of 3 pizzas and fries😩 This is simply not good enough for such a tourist destination AND they are the only... More

Ate here prior to Abel Tasman hike with Wilson's. Did the Seals and Beach hike which we would highly recommend. Had a margherita pizza and Caesar salad. Was ok. Caesar salad came with anchovies despite asking for it without twice with the server. Options limited in this area for lunch as the view was worth it. All the other spots... More

Like others I am not impressed. The wait staff seem to be mostly young travelers. They are lovely people but haven't a clue about service and are more interested in social life. Nobody seemed to want to serve me at the counter, I had to wait for two staff to finish their social conversation before I got attention. Hope the... More
