I heard that this was the best Seafood Chowder in the area. I love the Eichardts version but this beats it. And Allpress coffee. Best coffee in NZ.

Had lunch here after a morning of looking around the town. I had the fish of the day and my partner had the blue cod- both were amazing! Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for some classic NZ fish-n-chups!!
