Enjoyed the quality of the day's special, great flavours and perfectly seasoned. It was a quiet day but I still had to go the bar to order, service not so customer focused. Worth a visit.

We visited Picton for a short break in June. We were recommended Le Cafe by our hosts at Kippilaw House. We weren't disappointed, the food and service were excellent - if I could just make one comment, which is meant as feedback and not criticism - it was a dark wet night in June - it was very hard to tell your cafe was open, as understandably there weren't many in for dinner that night. Some lights and a sandwich board outside would have made it more obvious, possibly to others that you were open for business. We'll be back next time we're in Picton. Thankyou.

Nice spacious cafe on Picton waterfront. Handy to ferry and commercial wharf for departures into the Sounds. Live music on a regular basis and wide range of musicians. Good food and coffee - eat in or takeaway. Seating available outdoors but watch tables as footpath on angle!

It's been ages since we have been to Le Café-but as always they delivered both with service and food. We visited for lunch on a Saturday-the café was buzzing-a lot of diners but we still got great service & food. Any bread starter is great (we had the smoked fish dip with bread)-everything is made on premises? The fish soup is divine-this is not a chowder but seems to be a traditional dish? Handmade pasta was delicious. Coffee was as always the best in town. No fried food here thank goodness! You also get the best view-over the foreshore and Queen Charlotte Sound-but can also see the busy stuff.
