“Fantastically warm hospitality!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Decided to stay another night! Wonderfully warm welcome from our hosts - the attached accomodation is immaculately clean, restaurant food perfectly cooked and delicious. Would recommend to anyone as a great place to stay if you intend to do the walks and/or eco-tour to Farewell Spit, or as a 'get away' from the city. Beautiful kaarst landscape setting, abundant bird life a real treat. Thanks so much!

“Great Place to eat!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We have had the pleasure of eating at the Eatery several times, and in have always had a fabulous meal here. The owners are friendly and go all out to please and they do not charge extra for working on a bank holiday !!!!!
I would recommend the Char grilled Steak everytime, but my husband has the fish dish and loved it.
The best place to eat in Takaka!

“Superb Food and”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

The salmon I ate here was possibly the best meal I have had in years, and we live in San Francisco, one of the food capitals of the world. The owner was wonderful, and seemed to be running the restaurant by himself. The artistic setting behind the rock is very cool as well. My Dad lives in Takaka so we will return.
