...the orange roughy was the BEST fish dish I have eaten during two months travelling around the South island. The restaurant was busy, but the staff managed to deliver food, drinks and quality service effortlessly.

We ordered off the breakfast menu. My husband ordered the big breakfast and it was BIG. He enjoyed it but couldn't finish it all. I ordered the eggs benedict with bacon and it was very good.

We had a nice dinner - whilst not fine dining the food was good heart pub food. Service was good, and cannot recommend the load enough. Warm home-made, was definitely best part. The schnitzel and nachos we had were good too but the starter set...the bar!More

Friendly locals. Comfortable, clean bar with reasonably priced drinks. Limited wine options. Sports viewing at reasonable (not crazy loud) volumes. Nice vibe.

There's not a great choice for dining in Hokitika. Stumpers has been around for many years. Hubby enjoyed a good seafood chowder and I enjoyed my chicken salad. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The place has a good pub vibe. If that's the type of...food you're looking for then you should be happy with what's on offerMore

Had nachos - was very disappointing. Beef like old grandmas mince. No real flavour. Had lamb rack. Yes it looked great but was precooked so although looked rare had texture of microwaved meat. Mashed potatoes not worth the effort. Very disappointing.
