Yet again Chris and Pat were the perfect hosts, we had been staying in the Cobb Valley (Kahurangi National Park) the nights prior to coming into Takaka and felt like we needed a night of quality and comfort before returning home, having stayed at the "Eatery" once before we thought this would do us just nicely. We were right...
The rooms are clean and tidy and very private, with their own little "court yard/garden" area and they are set amoungst the most intriguing rock formations (which are such a large part of Golden Bay).
On that particular night there was a function on at the restaurant, so room service was the order of the day....the meals arrived in a timley manner, well presented and most importantly cooked to perfection!! Having spent quite a bit of time over the years passing through (hunting and fishing) and working in Golden Bay, The Eatery on the Rock would have to be easily the best true restaurant in Takaka, there are plenty of other options if you're looking cafe style food or good 'ol bar type meals, but if you want true restaurant qualitydining in Golden Bay, with warm, friendly hosts then then the "Eatery" with Chris and Pat is the place!!
