Small but nice wharf in Raglan.

The wharf is not very big with limited parking but it has a few nice shops there. Of course the fish and chips is the best around.

Even though there is 2 good restaurants, there isn't too much going on at this Wharf. You can't see the mountain and once the stores close its pretty boring. They have a fish & chip shop as well as a bar but its more for food.

Located on the edge of Raglan and easy walking distance from town. Parking nearby and only takes a few minutes to walk along the wharf sites.

It looks like a lot of the reviews here recommend this destination for its fish and chips, and although these were very, very good, it has other selling points. There are a few shops, some coastal birdlife, locals fishing recreationally and commercial fishing boats unloading their catch. The concrete silo conversion to accommodation was also interesting.

More than a wharf!!! Yes you can leave from here on the many fishing and cruising options but also there are some great little shops, a fab fish shop (fresh and cooked) with coffee and more and a good restaurant. Added to that the views are as always in this part of the world.....to die for.

if you get there make sure you have fish and chips on the wharf. We had a Dori fish meal and it was the freshest fish ever. The pottery is worth a visit

Ate here Last Year and was disappointed with service. So much better this year, new staff and very pleasant. We ordered Snapper special for two, the fish was excellent, it would be good to have home style fries on offer, however have to say it's the best Fish and Chips we've had this year.

My favourite fish and Chips in Raglan, in the peak busy periods we order and pay in the morning for collection at night. They also do crumbed fish too!

Check out the Raglan Wharf the next time you are in town. We love strolling down the different shops and checking out the local arts and cultural scene. There are coffee shops and a seafood cafe as well. The fish and chips here is average, not necessarily the best in town as they tend to overcook their fish and prices... More
