Unfortunately this burger did not meet my expectations. Why was rice included in the burger? It was big enough without it. Avocado should not go with chicken satay. I like vegetables but there was too many and the burger just fell apart. Cute location and...More

What a treat to find this place after walking on the Abel Tasman coastal track. Delicious food, good portion and plenty of fish / veggie options available.

Great spot of dinner after a few days camping. Burgers were fresh and tasty. Kumara chips also good. Service quick.

Worst Burger ever ! Bun soggy , meat overcooked and way too heavy on salad. If you want a truly awesome burger , then travel to Roussillon in Southern France !!

If you only eat one burger in New Zealand let this be it. The servings was abhorrently large and every part was of early morning freshness. I could taste the relaxed lifestyle of Nelson cooked within the mussel patty. Treat yourself!

never ever go to Marahau and miss the fat tui. The burgers are amazing value for money and always fill you up. If you have any room left, try the Ice Creme Sammie to finish off. You will not be disappointed

Had been recommended this place by our son..so after a hike and a swim, we dropped in and enjoyed a really delicious "Plucked" chicken satay burger (from their great menu) between us as it's pretty big! $NZ14 and we would not have been able to...More
