Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We found this gem and loaded up with smoked goodies for our antipasto. Packed full of flavour and were savouring every mouthful

We were 4 adults looking for local delicacies for our week’s holiday.
The cooler with pate & other items only had a tiny pate & the rest was empty.
We bought mussels already in a pottle & also pre bagged. Neither listed ingredients or had expiry dates. We found this difficult because of food allergies.
We also bought a piece of smoked trevally, which was dry, inedible & really disgusting.
A business like this should be an asset for a town but this place really needs to look at laws of selling food & check for freshness.
We couldn’t return the fish as we were way out of town.

Sometimes a bit grumpy but their salmon is delicious, other fish are good but a bit dry. We liked the habanero flavor on the oysters.

What a find - we arrived in the last half hour of the day and were so glad we made it before the shop shut. Being able to have samples really made a difference to the amount we purchased! The problem was we couldn't decide what to buy and bought loads it was so tasty.

Located just at the entrance to Coromandel Town this place sokes all sorts of yummy food. We tried a range of the smoked mussels and fish. All were excellent quality and had smoky flavour throughout. Really recommend a visit here.

We visited NZ in 2008 and discovered this place then, even getting our Christmas eve dinner there! We just returned in November, and made a trip up the Coromandel to visit it again. Once again we chose the large sampler tray at $45 NZ, which lasted us for a week of tasty dinner, lunches or snacks! Whitefish, salmon, mussels, and some of the fresh local fish, all superbly smoked and boneless. Buy some good bread and crackers, pick up some of the smoked olives or cheeses they also have, some NZ wine and you'll be in smoky heaven! It's very basic and old fashioned inside, but it's a wonderful place to visit!

so many choices and if you get the chance try everyone of their superbly smoked morsels, we were there for on holiday 2 weeks and visited quite a few times for their freshly smoked goodies, perfect nibbles for the end of a busy day with a glass of wine enjoying the view from the holiday deck

We bought a 1 kg pack of mixed seafood including mussels, roe, scallops & 4 varieties of fish, which was shrink wrapped so we could bring back to Australia. We declared them & when we said what they were they didn’t even want to look at them & at $45.90NZD we thought very good value
