Fodor's Review

This day/night bar and café is in a lovely old house on Takaka's main street and has a sunny courtyard, impressive handmade furniture, plenty of indoor seating, and roaring fires (indoor and out) for cozy nights. The menu consistently provides NZ faves like sticky pork spare ribs, 14-ounce sirloin steaks, and sea-run king salmon. Their daily specials and vegetarian selections provide plenty of other options, and there's a good range of light meals and snacks. The restaurant roasts and serves Takaka's very own fair-trade, organic Tuatara coffee. There's live music several nights a week, including an open-mike night every Thursday.
