Cant' say enough about this place. We return every year for their fresh mussels and oysters. Shucked in the same place. They make one of the best mussel chowder! We bought 3 pots home for dinner that night. Their chowder is nice and thick, with lots of mussels and packed full of flavour. As I recall, they make delicious fish and chips too!
Always busy, so parking can be tricky at times. We love the setting, right by the bay, with mussel barge in view.

Oysters au naturel or in batter! Mussels, mussel chowder! Fish and chips! All delicious! Take away, or eat in the casual outdoor area. You can also watch your oysters being opened, so know they are fresh!

Got oysters, chowder with fry bread, Paua Fritter and a Fish Filet. Chowder was the best thing. Oysters were ok but they were shucked already and in a plastic container in the fridge. Not much available to put on them either. Fritter was awful, no flavor and chewy small chunks of Paua. Setting is amazing as you overlook the place where basically everything comes from. Outside picnic style seating and easy parking. This place could be amazing and I hope somebody does something with it someday.

We did a day trip from Auckland to the Coromandel Peninsula (which was really worth it) and saw the sign so being seafood lovers we pulled in. Super cute, rustic building and the Mussel Chowder was seriously the best we had in NZ. Lovely and peaceful sitting and looking at the water and being checked out by the seagulls. And there's a little gallery/gift shed too where we bought a small wooden cheese knife. Love supporting local. If you are looking for glamour this is just very simple and quaint so would not be suitable.
