A wonderful evening with great meals and service by Matt. Thoroughly recommended if you are in the area. We shared 4 entrees so we can sample some of the dishes. No regrets whatsoever!

After reading a few reviews we decided we would check this place out as it sounded good. Unfortunatly it didn't live up to what we thought. Service was rushed at the start....they asked if we wanted drinks before we were even seated and hadn't seen...More

Great place, nice view of the harbour mouth, 20meters from the wharf, good food I got a chicken linguine which was beautiful, good fast service
Thank you for your feedback and it is our pleasure to have you dine with us. We hope to see you back again one day soon.
Told the man when I was paying that service was really substandard. Flagging people down to order meal, then reorder drinks, albeit they seemed disinterested. As I sit her writing review, 15 mins after paying no one has cleared our table (what would be the...More

If you plan to take the Ferry (across the road) call in to the Apple Shed for Breakfast it was excellent and friendly NZ service. Upon your return from a boat excursion it’s a good place for an evening meal, but it is a popular...More

Today was my 2nd visit and once again the food was fantastic. I've had the seafood chowder and today had the mussels entree (amazing) and the gurnard and fries. Highly recommend. Jake the young waiter was fantastic.
Thank you, Jake says 'it was a delight to have served you both' and we hope to see you back for your third visit..
Our homestay hosts recommended this restaurant, and made our dinner booking in their name. When we arrived we were offered a choice of table, so we sat by the window looking out over the little harbour. It was a really lovely meal: I had green-lipped...More

My family and I went on a wine tasting tour and for lunch we ate at The Apple Shed. The service was excellent and I felt very welcomed as my waitress started a lovely conversation. I ordered the mussle dish and I do not regret...More
Thankyou very much 'inthiramckenzie' the team at the Shed are very glad you enjoyed your time with us and the kitchen are joyous to see someone is enjoying the mussel dish so much, we hope to see you back in the near future :)
Not fancy, but the food is exceptional and the servers are warm and attentive. I don't usually order fish and chips when there are so many other tempting dishes on the menu, but I decided to give the Apple Shed's F&C a try and I...More
Janice we are overjoyed to see that you enjoyed the cider battered F&C and excited that you find us to have the best in New Zealand, hopefully we will see you return in the near future :)
The place is great and food good. But we turned up expecting GF chips (as marked on the menu) only to find they are cooked in the normal fryer. Tomatoes are GF unless you cook them in a fryer with other gluten, so why say...More
