Always great food here. Fresh, wholesome and satisfying. It's compulsion to eat here whenever we are in or near Wellington.

Some cafe's are worth the effort to go to. The food is great, the view is fantastic and the staff are very helpful. It was pretty crowded on Sat lunchtime but can understand its popularity as it more than meets all the criteria for a fantastic café.

A big thumbs up to Maranui Surf Lifesaving Café. Just wish there was one like it up in Auckland.

This is a great café to stop out if you are driving around the South Coast of Wellington. Great food and service and a view outside of the sea.

This cafe was humming at lunchtime but we didn't have to wait too long for a seat. Were seated in a bay window with million dollar view of Lyall Bay. Staff were friendly and helpful despite being extremely busy. Coffee was very good. Food was a generous serving and very tasty. Obviously a popular place for locals which is a recommendation in itself.

First time visitors and what a place!

Not in central Wellington so you do have to make the effort to go there but it really is worthwhile.

The beach front setting is fantastic and the life saving club itself has been beautifully converted with some great original touches.

The variety of food is excellent and I can hugely recommend the mussels in a garlic sauce and the thickshakes.

Would love this to be my local cafe...
