After kayaking in the Abel Tasman for over 2hrs, a bite to eat at the Fat Tui was perfect. Was a busy little place so orders took a while to cook but we were in no rush and was quite happy to sit & relax....More

My friends are big fans of Fat Tui. When they heard we were visiting Abel Tasman they seemed as enthusiastic about the burgers here as they were about the scenic delights of this beautiful part of the country. So we were looking forward to visiting....More

Our family of 5 with teens did the Abel Tasman walk and then rewarded ourselves with burgers. They were great, really big and with lots of tasty ingredients.

Well worth the 15min wait!! My "modified" Cowpat (hold the mustard and aioli but slap on pineapple and beets) was phenomenal! Correctly priced for portion and quality. The perfect reward after any Abel Tasman hike 😁

Great burger spot, worth the wait on a busy night. Good meat and lots of veg on one big yummy bun. Sweet potato Fries are sooo gooood!

Took our family here whilst on holiday, we bought burgers and kumara chips. These were the best gourmet burgers we've ever had. The portions are massive, fresh ingredients and worth every cent. We visit The Fat Tui every time we holiday here now!

The burgers at the Fat Tui are a great meal. Fresh, healthy (as healthy as burgers can be), and tasty. Best enjoyed with kumara chips. There can be a bit of a wait, but it's worth it.
