  • We had a lovely dinner at the Moeraki Tavern. It can get busy so if you want to eat outside, make a reservation. It is so relaxing sitting outside having a drink or two. The staff were lovely and very welcoming.

  • Absolutely incredible recommendation from a local that I’d happily pass on. The food here was amazing, the blue cod was so fresh and perfectly cooked. The staff were super welcoming, couldn’t fault it. Enjoy!

  • My wife and I have dined here twice over the last couple of days and both times the meals and hospitality have been outstanding. Can definitely recommend the Seafood chowder and the Blue Cod meals.
