Best seafood, so fresh and cooked to order. I would recommend everyone trying this during the walk around Kaikoura

We had 1/2 a crayfish, 6 prawns, salmon & grilled fish. All the food was fresh and delicious. We spent $70, but I must say we were both still hungry and we are not the biggest eaters. Despite this, the food was yum, the staff were lovely and we really enjoyed eating from a Kaikoura institution!

Great place to sit outside at a picnic table near the ocean on a beautiful day and enjoy seafood chowder and crayfish prepared on the grill. Picked our crayfish out of a cooler to be cooked on the grill. Only disappointment was they had pre-steamed it and wasn't cooked live. Still a great experience and would recommend.

This is a cute little roadside stand on the way to see the seal colonies on the peninsula. I got the mussels (yum!), seafood chowder (good but seemed a tad bit thin for chowder), and the Paua (when in NZ...) All in all, I thought the food was good but a little pricey for a dive, picnic style, roadside experience.... More

This place is outstanding. It's rare to find a seafood restaurant with this range let alone a beach side food truck! We had everything and everything was cooked to perfection and presented beautifully! Paua, mussels, scallops, crayfish, grilled fish, whitebait and the best seafood chowder I've ever had! We spent $110 between us but we tried everything and it was... More

So good to see that this iconic Kaikoura institution was back in its original location following the earthquake. We had one of their famous seafood platters and were not disappointed. Every item was fresh and well cooked. Highly recommended.

We had the seafood platter between us for lunch on a perfect summers day and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Paula patties were a million miles better than some of the Gough things you get at fish and chip shops, We sat and ate them before going on a three hour walk around the peninsula and it fortified us nicely!
