Fodor's Review

In a two-story Victorian waterfront hotel overlooking Ingles Bay, one of Kaikoura's most dependable eateries serves traditional New Zealand pub fare with a bit of a makeover. The dining room serves consistently good, fresh local dishes, particularly seafood, with a good selection presented on the Seafood Platter. Their chowder is thick and creamy and is served as a lunch dish or dinner main course; or try the lamb or aged steak. The bar serves cheaper lunches and pub snacks if you're just looking to graze.
