Perhaps our favorite restaurant in New Zealand. Not at all formal, but great seafood simply prepared and served in a relaxed, beautiful setting. You can't beat lunch (or early dinner in the summer when they're open late) of mussels, fritters and a simple salad eaten at one of their picnic tables on a warm, sunny afternoon.

Called into the Mussel Kitchen after driving up 309 Road from Tairua. This was a great place to eat one of my favourite dishes after a decent drive. The location was great with a fantastic grassed outdoor area to make the most of warm sunny days. Plenty of choices with the mussels, cider and beer on hand, cheerful staff. In... More

Very busy place, when we got there we were informed of the 45 minute wait for food. We accepted this, but the food came out in 20 minutes. So fresh and yum. The staff were all very friendly and the outdoor surroundings were beautiful. My husband loved the home brewed ginger beer. We cant wait to come back!

A sunny lunchtime sitting outside, sipping the ginger beer, waiting patiently for our mussels, what can be nicer? Faster delivery, sure, but why rush perfection? Enormous green NZ mussels came in large metal pots cooked as requested. Delicious.

Great lunch today which was just as good as last time we went. Great place to relax outside and enjoy a beer that is brewed onsite. The barman was real friendly and even heard him let out a bit of a verse to the music. Kiwi as! Grab a few beers to takeaway- you won't be able to get them... More

We had lunch here and it was realt genuin. Their specialty is mussels and they come in huge pots. You can have them served with one of five choices of sauce or grilled and served with three different flavours. The mussels are twice the size as any I have ever eaten. The shells are a bit greenish. The taste was... More

We really enjoyed the mussels here, they are big, juicy and they really do them well. We had them steamed and grilled - both ways were good with wine or craft beer. It wasn't so busy when we went, so we didn't have wait problems, everything appeared in good time and order. The location is pleasant and has a good... More
