Popped in before departing Picton for a late brekkie. Ordered the eggs Benny, which were sublime. Lovely presentation, fresh ingredients, healthy-sized portion of ham, and the hollandaise sauce was out of this world! The crusty bread was a bit hard to cut with a butter knife, though, and we would have been well served with something sharper. The blend of... More

I guess the fact that my partner and I have had 5 meals here in the last two weeks says a lot. Breakfast and lunch are more casual than dinner but this café has few pretensions and the staff just want you to enjoy the wine and food. Wine by the glass offers a varied selection of Marlborough vineyards, as... More

After arriving on the ferry, we wandered up the street and found this spot with outdoor seating and a nice view. We enjoyed the salmon spread (had to ask for extra bread, because there was so much tasty spread), a glass of wine, and a beer. All for $30. Service was efficient and friendly. When I went inside to pay,... More

I had resolved to not eat at any place in Picton more than once and the Seabreeze made me break this resolve, the food was so good! My first morning in Picton, I wanted a lighter meal, and headed to Seabreeze. In had the corn fritters and bacon and they were delicious! The fritters were well flavored and light with... More

What a meal! And no pasta in sight - just a beautiful, inviting plate of fabulous veggies - makes such a change for a restaurant not to dish out the classics. My husband had a lovey fish dish, whilst friens had the chowder and mussels

Food was so tasty, we shared Tiger Prawns and Greek salad from appetiser menu. Both were fabulous, the sauce accompanying the prawns so tasty, coconut,... More

We called in for lunch as we were visiting Picton for the day the town was really busy and it was nice sunny day. The food was good as we could sit outside

We ate at the Seabreeze after disembarking from the Interislander Ferry from Wellington. Food was quite good and the service excellent. Our group had grilled fish, a toasted sandwich and the seafood chowder. We enjoyed them all.
