“We had crayfish here and fresh mussels, Yum!!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Good food and service, worth your money and time. Close to town centre. We had some seafood of course and they really know how to cook it in Kaikoura!

“Good value”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The room was fairly basic but clean and spacious enough. It's close enough to walk into the centre of Kaikoura easily. Staff were friendly and helpful, we thought the bar might be a bit noisy later in the evening but it wasn't a problem.

“poor Steak meal”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Steak meal lacked size and taste. I guess you gotta stick to seafood meals when you visit Kaikoura! Service was efficent though
