The meal delivery was a bit slow but considering we had not booked and arrived at a busy time of day, we can see past that. I was looking forward to the seafood chowder so was disappointed to find only one mussel (two shells) and no sign of other fish life. There was a lot of potato pieces to bulk... More

Had a fabulous night here, with our group of 10. Nothing was too much trouble and the food and wine was superb.

Had a beer and wine and was shocked by price but staff were friendly and the view is lovely. Not sure if I would go back because of cost.

We had spent the day on the road to Nelson from Punakaiki, and wanted a relaxed evening meal, and chose to drive out to Mapua to come to the Apple Shed cafe. Good choice! We weren't very hungry, so had mains and a single pud to share. The salmon was nice, but not exceptional, and Helen was pleased that the... More

This restaurant serves quality food in a relaxed, casual setting. I attended the wedding reception of dear friends at the Apple Shed in April. I was lucky enough to arrive just on sunset to admire the beautiful view from the deck of the Apple Shed. The restaurant fits in to its environment, the bar being made up of old apple... More

Nice restaurant. Friendly staff but had to wait 1 1/2 hrs for our meal. It was Saturday night. Very noisy but was packed. The meals were all delicious in fact nicest meal I have had in a longtime.

Food was very average and disappointing, have eaten here before and loved it but would be loath to return again. All of our party (6) has very below average meals and the dessert was even less palatable. Staff very nice but service very slow and muddled. Long wait for main course.

We actually only had a drink as we decided for the style of the cafe the prices were very steep. The exterior surroundings were also very run down and quite dirty not at all well maintained. A shame because it's such a magic spot. It deserves more attention. Then on our departure I spotted a whole table that needed to... More

I have been fortunate to experience a wonderful meal here. Its not the first time I have been and this time was simply put as awesome as previous ocassions. The food is delicious, well presented and my steak was rare just like I asked for. Service was perfect, as I only had to look up and the staff were right... More

We went for an early dinner with the family, the service was good but food was pretty slow. Meals were ok, risotto with fish of the day was very salty and overcooked, spicy squid was not spicy but cooked well. It had been talked up so a little disappointed. Magic spot.
