We stayed in Havelock for 3 days...hiking and enjoying the local sights, cultures, and foods. One of which is greenlip mussels.....farms and farms of greenlip mussels are just minutes away from the Slip Inn. If you are not allergic to shellfish, you have to try the mussels...they are big, succulent, sweet and soooo tasty. Service are quick and friendly, not to mention the views of mountains, water and harbor. It was crowded with locals and tourists alike. I would go back again and again.

This place is recommended for lunch prior to or following the Greenshell Mussel Cruise. They serve great seafood and one has excellent views of the waterfront in Picton. The service is friendly, the food is good, and the dress is casual.

Fantastic service, wonderful food, great wine and what a spot! Eating delicious food whilst listening to the gentle clanking of boats and lapping of water. Not to mention a stunning view! Lovely

This was our lunch stop before we head on to Abel Tasman. The restaurant is a little hidden and we were given directions by a nice lady by the side of the street. The mussels cooked in clear broth were excellent but we felt that they could've served it with some complimentary breads. Instead, we had to pay $7.50 for a few slices. Enjoyed it nonetheless.
