We ordered the takeaway pizza to have at our accommodation. It was a brilliant pizza with superb toppings. It came to us in record time, so fast. Found the gentleman behind the bar who took my order a little unfriendly which was unfortunate.

While not very far into the detour from Picton to KiaKoura we needed to stop for lunch and found that the Clinker Café was closed. They sent us down the road a bit to the Alpine Lodge Restaurant. I ordered the Thai Chicken Salad and it was really, really good. The restaurant is pretty casual, with some of the tables... More

Dining room was pleasant enough and staff service very good . The menu choice was limited and not helped by the fish of the day not being available . Overall a bit disappointing.

I booked a table asking for one in a quiet corner - I got one in the middle of the dining hall. I asked for fried fish - I got battered fish. Why not listen to the customer? It's not that difficult. The customer is the reason why you guys have jobs.

We stayed in the inn, and the restaurant was simply the most convenient place to eat. We were pleasantly surprised by the very good menu choices and the quality of the food. We were warned when we were seated that because of the crowds, the kitchen was backed up and might have to wait longer than usual, but our food... More

We had dinner here on our overnight stay and clearly the night we were there the staff were under the pump, possibly due in part to the holiday period and also due to the increased number of tourist using the inland route because of the closure of the coast road. We had a booking for 7:30pm and did not sight... More

Only option in the town & its really good. Hot meals available the decor is really nice & we sat on the window table & had great views of the garden & surroundings, the chef took extra care to meet our taste buds, little expensive but a great experience.

Great dinner and very efficient service. Good choice of wine as well. Easy to book and the buffet that night offered a wealth of variety with a great range of BBQ food options.
