Amazing fresh seafood, good wine, and very engaging & friendly owners! If on Golden Bay or near Abel Tasman National Park, this is the place!

We had dinner here whilst staying at the local campsite. The food was extremely good, lamb shank is well worth a try and the sauce that comes with the grilled salmon was superb.

Nice selection of good local and wider NZ wines too.

Only room for improvement is doing away with credit card surcharges on top of your bill. We all know card companies charge fees, but just build it into your pricing like everyone else!

Great summer night out with friends.
The French influence food was worthy of any top notch restaurant while retaining a lovely beach ambiance. Certainly a place we would recommend for any visitors to the region. Fantastic food and service, thank you.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. Many of the kitchen staff seem to originate from France (especially the town of Gap) and so English and French are the two commonly spoken languages of this quirky cafe. Plan B boasts its own accommodation, but is very close to a large camping ground.
The food is wholesome and reasonably priced.
Plan B is located in Pohara, Golden Bay, in the far north of New Zealand's South Island. Pohara is a beach holiday destination with beautiful scenery in the locale.
If plan 'A' goes down the gurgler, then there's always Plan B.
