Description: Takeaways & Deli on the historic Mapua Wharf. Our onsite takeaways are a Nelson favorite. Come and savour our delicious fish and chips while relaxing on the wharf where you can enjoy the natural beauty of the Waimea Estuary. Or grab a cool drink from the local craft brewery where an easy going band is often playing in the courtyard. Additionally our onsite Deli showcases all our Smoked Salmon, Fish, Mussels and Pate. The Smokehouse experience is based on the concept of delicately hot smoking local seafood, using traditional brick kilns and natural manuka shavings. The whole process is overseen by our experienced smokers in a true balance of art and science. 100% Natural 100% Preservative Free

“Smoked fish pate to die for!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Seriously good pate, so good you would die for it figuratively and perhaps literally with all of the cream in it. But I cannot help myself...on a thin crisp it is the best. Pair it with a nice wine and forget about eating anything else...

“Best views for lunch”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Always was a treat and hopefully still trucking along, been a few times and never faulted anything, excellent spot to have a long lunch and summer-time on the wharf is brilliant. Oh yeah - smoked fish you'll take home.

“De-lish Fish (and chips)”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Got a fish and chips on a stunning nelosn afternoon - big chunk of blue cod and half scoop of chips which was plenty. Fish was moist and batter crisp and chips were divine! Eaten sitting on the wharf too!
