Had a delicious brunch here with my partner. I had the eggs benedict with mushrooms and it was so tasty. My partner had the savoury mince and really enjoyed it. Coffee was really good too. Highly recommended

With other we booked 21 seats for a large family meal. I paid for our family mum dad and 2 kids The service was top of the line. Our 2 waiters were excellent especially the young american chap. Food was served in good time and...we enjoyed a nz merlot. I had ribs whick were well cooked and the wife had a beautifully cooked ribeye. Checked with sin and daughter both very happy 2 of us had desert which was very nice also. We were upstairs and Jim the owner spoke to our group clearly with good humour laying out how it works. Good experience quality food and service and great value for money most mains $26-29 I absolutely recommend this place and will be back.More

Had a wonderful breakfast here👍 Food was excellent and the service was very good. Currently it closes at 1:30pm, a shame as we would have lived to come for dinner.

We had breakfast at the Kitchen in Hokitika. It was one of our best breakfasts we had on our week over the West Coast. Breakfast was cooked to perfection, good sized meal. Great service, really great coffee. I was a bit of a cold morning,...they had the fire going. It was great. Keep up the good work.More

We walked in with no dinner reservation but were made very welcome. The Kitchen was recommended to us by our accommodation host, Amberlea Cottages. The food was well presented and the staff attentive and the owner spent a few minutes with us. One of our...party wanted a simple meal of bangers and mash which was not on the current menu--this was no trouble and he said its the best bangers and mash he's had and he's a connoisseur :-).More

I took my friend out to dinner for his birthday. I had the rib dinner as this is my favorite and my friend had a ham steak special. Everything was very well prepared and tasty. A very nice meal for a special occasion. I took...my son there last year when he was visiting from overseas and I’ll be back.More
