“Lovely restaurant in a great setting”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

We stopped off here for dinner, en route to Pohara. There are lots of trees around and the restaurant is set up high on the rocks. The food was divine - we had Mushroom Stroganoff in Filo for starters, then a Roast Pork and a Pumpkin & Feta tart for our entrees, followed by a Banana Split! They had a low-alcohol wine suggestion, as I was driving, which I thought was a great idea and was delicious. A lovely place to stop and eat if you are heading to Golden Bay.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

We stayed at the Accomodation for three nights and went to the restaurant the last evening of our stay. We`ve had clams and the fish of the day. The food was delicious made with fresh produce and a nice presentation on the plate. The service was friendly the regional wine not expensive.

We had to wait over 30 minutes for our order to be taken and a further 30 minutes for it to arrive and when it did it was cold.
Very dissappointing!

We are a quality restaurant and on a busy night it is not uncommon to wait 30 minutes for a meal order to be taken as all our meals are cooked from scratch, and then 30 minutes for it to arrive. We aim to take a drinks order within 2 minutes of you arriving. If you had booked a table you would have been seated straight away. We do not turn over tables it is yours for the night.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed July 4, 2011

We ate at Eatery on the Rock while staying in Golden bay this winter. Given that it is the quiet season, we were one of only two groups in the restaurant, but it still had a nice ambience with local art on the walls and music in the background. We were given friendly, efficient service. The food was good - simple but tasty and fresh and the mains were large enough that we were too full to stay for dessert. The wine list was fairly extensive - impressive since it features almost exclusively Nelson/Marlborough wines.
