An impressive buffet appears three times a day in this pleasant dining room. Lunch and dinner selections always include six entrées and another half dozen vegetable dishes, as well as soups, salads, and several desserts. The salmon is reliably good, and if you've caught your own, the restaurant kitchen will cook it for you. Between lunch and dinner, a snack menu serves panini, soup, mussels, warm chicken salad, and the like, all for less than NZ$15.
