Lovely meal, beautiful views and great service. This is the kind of dinner you expect in the cities at a top restaurant but it also retains a nice friendly atmosphere

Rosi and her team made our visit extra special. The great energy of the restaurant, the kitchen staff and Rosi is infectious. The meal itself was up there with some of the best dining experiences I have, around the world. This is a hiden gem....If they were in Wellington they would be booked out nightly, but instead you get to dine surrounded by breathtaking views of the vineyard gardens and beautiful coast line. Thank you for a great night.More

Rosita and her team made our experience dining at TOKW better than we expected. In the lead up we emailed over details and on the night our family was treated to a culinary delight. With many varying palettes from our group everyone was delighted by...the menu, the atmosphere and the view. Thank you for making our pre-Christmas celebrations so special.More

The most outstanding culinary experience ever! The degustation dinner was delicious and so beautifully presented, the views and sunset on the snow capped mountains was incredible, the restaurant was awesome and Rob and Rosie are totally AMAZING. We loved our dining experience at TOKW it...was absolutely top notch! The flavours of each dish were phenomenal, love that ingredients are sought locally. If you are in Kaikoura this is an absolute must destination! We will be back, thank you so much for such an amazing experience.More

We will be back! Rosie and her amazing husband are quite the team. We celebrated my birthday and decided on the three course degastation Sunday evening. Our only complaint was we wish we had not had a late lunch. The food is beautifully presented and...matched by rosies advice. Thank you so muchMore

We had dinner at TOKW recently for a special anniversary treat. It was one of the best meals we have had in a long time! We did the 7 course degustation menu with wine matches. Each dish that came out was better than the last....They looked superb and tasted divine! Definitely put it on your list of things to do while in Kaikoura. Chef Rob and his wife do a wonderful job of making you feel at home while enjoying delicious food.More

We came here as a group and were treated to amazing service, food, and wine. There was a power cut for half the meal and they provided candles and there seemed to be no food interruptions. Loved the main course and the Pinot Noir they...paired with it.More

After an exceptional evening here recently, we can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. The setting, overlooking the Kaikoura Coast, is wonderful and the warm welcome, that we received on arrival, set the scene for, what was to be, a beyond exceptional dining experience. In fact...one of the best and most innovative meals we have experienced both nationally and internationally. A huge thank you to Rob and Rosita for their warmth, passion and commitment. Visitors to Kaikoura are extremely fortunate have such a outstanding restaurant available. Thank you yet again.More
