I had an ordinary fish burger which took a long time to arrive but it came with very tasty waffle fries. The owner/ manager and staff were nice and friendly and there was a friendly resident dog . This might be the only restaurant / bar in marina . Stop for a drink and waffle fries

Great staff, lovely food, fresh and delicious. Good atmosphere, looking out to the Marina. It is away from the town of Picton in Waikawa bay. If you are a 'boaty' it is a good place from which to look and admire!

Lovely location for an evening meal overlooking the harbour. Lovely friendly bar staff who was very helpful when we wanted smaller children's meals. My husband loved, loved, loved the criss-cross chips....managed to finish off the children's aswell!!

Came here for evening meal - ordered at bar then went to sit outside in the sunshine to wait. Meal arrived cooked to perfection - good sized portions and piping hot. Tasted every bit as good as it looked! Will be back here again.

Thank Anne B
