Ordered food burgers and fish and chips , 50 minutes wait as very busy , not a problem and worth the wait , fish the best I have had in a long time and very reasonably priced for somewhere so remote.

The burgers were tasty but a bit messy to eat. The fish and chips were yummy. The only thing I would say is beware of insanely long wait times. The first time I came here with hungry family I waited in line for 15 minutes...More

Awesome selection of kiwi seafood burgers. Funky, good service and top notch grub/food. On the doorstep to the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park... If I was going to do the tramp/walk/kayak... I would stop in here for a hearty great meal before you go!

The atmosphere and location are outstanding. The staff friendly and efficient. The burgers varied with other complimentary (not free but appropriate to eat with burgers) other options. The only issue is that the burgers are almost too big to eat, at least before they start...More
