Fresh salad in a town that sold chips with almost everything. Such a treat. The scrambled eggs were great also.

food did not look fresh, too industrial. They are too much linked to their boating trips. would not eat there as better places abundant in the village. Positive: veru limited free access to the net. New zealand seems behind on that part of services

We have been here often over the years. Always great range of food, including some gluten free. Good service. Opportunity to shop for locally made articles.
