We decided to have a quiet dinner of burger but don't want to pay high price in nearby pub. Craypot is an excellent alternative. It offers a friendly, homey dinning experience. Very free, relaxing, good value, no rush. Lots of choices of beer.
Order is taken at the bar and payment made. Food will be brought over when it is ready. We had beef burger with beacon, grilled blue cod on seasonal green. Taste great. With beer and a bundaberg, total $53. Not bad, right?

Walked the length of the street in Kaikoura and settled on this bar/restaurant because of the craft beers and a small but interesting menu. Our group had fish and chips and a fish burger- both of which were lightly battered cod, non greasy chips and side salad- the portion size could be slightly larger, but it was really well cooked and easy on the stomach. Friendly staff, and a nice glass of wine and craft beer. Perfect!
