On our last day in New Zealand we enjoyed a tasty lunch at The Shack. The service, food and ambience were all great. This was to be expected after our lovely meal the night before at the Wallis Bistro, which apparently has the same owners....More

Despite the business of this ocean village, The Shack offered an incredibly peaceful, bright and sunny spot in which to enjoy a simple breakfast and good quality coffee. Great service and great atmosphere. I really look forward to going back here!
