Visiting New Zealand & driving from Christchurch to Blenheim. We stopped at Kaikoura for lunch. Hislops was the perfect place for us! Had the open face fish sandwich & it was delicious. The Kaikoura blowhole steam beer was great! Highly recommend this restaurant.

A great healthy alternative to food in town. Lentil burger was delicious, as was the biodynamic wine selection.

We got tempted to come here as we heard it was an all organic cafe, and were blown away by the offering and overall ambience. We were presently surprised to see that such a small cafe has an extensive range of organic wines and beers,...More

We only had a couple of desserts and coffee but that was enough for us to conclude that this is a very special place. Lovely decor and very good people.

Stopped in for breakfast, was warmly greeted by the waiter, who was very friendly and service was good. The food was probably slightly over cooked, but perhaps a personal taste. The coffee was Good, Would be better if you replaced the Swift... Overall good experience.
