This restaurant is quite out of the way, but we recently visited on a car rally. It is at the entrance to the Kaituna Track, so probably get walkers coming in for meals.
Over 45 people of us were in the group, and this restaurant gave us lots of choices from the menu (pre-ordered). Lots of our group enjoyed the game pies. All of us received a lovely meal. Great works girls on a very busy day.
Definitely recommend this restaurant if you are in this area.

Enjoyed the surroundings, the friendly staff, the outdoor fireplace, the grass seat. The goat curry pie I had was the best pie I have had - anywhere! My husband had venison pie and was equally enthusiastic. With the salad and wedges and washed down with Mussel Inn beer it was a great meal and very, very filling. Will look forward to going back as soon as possible.

Quite an effort to get here but well worth it. It seems to be in the middle of nowhere and that is exactly right. Lovely spot to while away an hour or two at lunchtime with some good value food. They have an interesting menu from which I chose the Tahr Open Sandwich. My wife had the Pork and Kumara Pie both of which were excellent. Treat yourself to a lunch in the wilderness.

Amazed us the number of cars that were constantly trickling into the place! Located in what seems like the boondocks, it's a lovely location. Everyone in Golden Bay seems to know the place and recommend it. We had goat curry pie and pork pie accompanied by beer brewed at nearby Mussel Inn - perfect! Then did short walk up trail to gold diggings. Worth the trip.
