Fantastic meal, excellent service, wonderful atmosphere. Very lucky the restaurant was still serving after 9pm when my buddy and I walked in. Had a delicious meal (local crayfish).

“Beautiful food and great host”
Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

The Maxton restaurant provided us with some excellent food and with a lovely view over the sea. The service was attentive, helpful and timely without being rushed in any way. The venison meal was most delicious. We would certainly return here if staying longer in Kaikura.

“One of the Best Meals in NZ”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We chanced upon Maxton's when we were in Kiakoura at the end of Jan. The service was excellent and the food out of this world. Having spent three weeks touring New Zealand we can honestly say the meal was one of the best we had. Try it for yourselves.

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

We ate here both nights we were in Kaikoura as the food was so good and excellent value. The fairly new owners/chef offer a freshly cooked meal with fresh vegetables or salad attractively presented and tasting even better. We felt this was the best restaurant in the resort but only caters for smallish numbers as the kitchen is small and chef likes to maintain his high standard. So booking is advisable
