Sunny day, longish drive from Christchurch, shoulder season, hungry. Go here for excellent fish & chips the old fashion way, with a fab outlook over the bay. Eat inside, in the courtyard or on the esplanade with the seagulls. Beaut.

Had a quick lunch here. Initially surprised at the price of the burgers but happily satisfied we got good value for money when they were ready 10 minutes later. Location opposite the harbour is brilliant. Would go again.
