Good restaurant between Levin and Wanganui?

We are driving from Wellington and I am looking for a nice place to stop and rest our bones. A pretty place with a fabulous restaurant would be great. Maybe a view of the water too. I am looking for a restaurant suggestion that serves lunch in April.

It doesn't have to be fancy. Good food is the top priority.

Any wineries along the way?

Stop off time would be anytime from Levin to Wanganui.


I love this site. I have planned my entire trip on suggestions from Trip Advisor people!

I don't think you will find any 'fabulous' restaurants between Levin and Wanganui. Your best bet if you want a choice of restaurants for lunch would be Palmerston North and that would mean diverting off State Highway 1 to go there. There are some very nice cafes and restaurants in PN but not what I could call fabulous and with a view.

Another suggestion would be stopping at some of the towns north of Wellington i.e. Raumati, Waikanae. There are some cafes with sea views in these towns.

We have two threads going on this.See my reply in the other.

Incidentally, I arranged for a party of 20 Japanese to lunch at Murrayfield Clydesdales just recently.They loved the place!
