Had a spectacularly average lunch - soggy bruschetta with tomato and quesadilla which was served with rock hard avocado and drowned with sweet chilli sauce!!! The coffee from the side bar was excellent. Real shame as location is great

Lovely food, very nice service. Make sure you reserve a table if you want to have dinner there. Catch of the day is always good if you like fish.

Very good evening meal staff friendly & attentive - our evening was extra special with the most beautiful sunset over the bay towards Nelson.

We stopped and had coffee/tea here twice. Wanted to have dinner here but they only had chips and other snacks on offer which was disappointing. Fantastic view of Tasman Bay. Busy during the day. Did not have a meal as we were only wanting a light lunch and there was not a lot on offer other than bigger meals.

My husband & I visited Kaiteriteri in January where we were staying the weekend. We walked to the Shoreline Cafe & Bar to have a snack & a beer. It was really packed & every seat inside was taken & we couldn't sit outside because it was pouring. This wasn't a problem, but the staff could have dried off a... More

Good setting overlooking the beach, sometimes a wait for food, but usually quite fast service. Food and drinks OK, more average than memorable.

Location is excellent, just off the beach with views of the water. Good range of options from a takeaway sausage roll or cake to full cooked meals. It catered well for lunch and really surprised us with the quality of their dinner options when we returned. Evening reservations at peak times in the summer are recommended. There always seemed to... More

Beautiful outside setting , but think it could do with table service. Also outside seating meant different menu than 'proper' inside restaurant. Didn't matter tho, we were after easy meal. Generous plate full. Less impressed with big fat lipstick stain on beer glass.. waitress was mortified though. We have also bought our morning coffees here for the 4 days we... More

We ordered breakfast and it was not at par by any measure. Coffee was pretty average and hash brown never looked like any hash browns. Probably wouldn't go again.

We decided to eat here after a day on one of the Wilsons tours as we had young children who were getting hungry and our accommodation was over an hour away. We were at first a little dubious about what would turn up as there seemed to be a little confusion at the ordering point, however we we were pleasantly... More
