Fodor's Expert Review Orca Restaurant and Bar
This waterside restaurant has big windows and the best views in Raglan—when orca swim into the harbor, you can see them from your table. Brunch is served all day (picture free-range eggs with Kranksy sausage, or eggs Benedict with house-smoked salmon). At lunch, look for platters, flatbreads, burgers, and more. Dinner brings out the chef's creativity; his signature dish is braised beef cheek with balsamic pickled onions and garlic mash. The food-and-wine matches are recommended, with selections from international and Kiwi wineries. Orca also has a casual bar, where you can watch the sunset over the harbor, play a game of pool, or listen to live music on weekends.
