West Coast Restaurants

  • The Best Restaurant in Town with Slow...

    For me this is the place to go in Hokitika at any time of the day. They have great breakfasts, lunches, cakes and dinners, the food beautifully presented. On a nice day you can sit at one of the tables outside. As a pohutukawa lover I enjoy very much to be surrounded by those maginificent (small) trees in containers.Although the name is French, and...

  • 200 Teapots, Good Coffee, Bad Custard...

    I had been there several times for coffee, little snacks and a muffin until I tried the custard slice. This brick was just horrible. I have never tasted such solid custard, it must have been a week old, the flaky puff pastry not flaky anymore but watery and gluing, I wonder how it did not have any mould as it looked and tasted like a historic...

  • Fabulous Victorian Atmosphere

    The coffee and breakfast we had there was good but what I enjoyed most was the great Victorian decor, the wall panels and the furniture. We sat at a table in the middle of the room which felt a little bit like at the dining table at home, and warmed up on a cool morning.The building has been renovated in 2001 into Victorian style and now really is...

  • Even Fish'n'Chips are Extraordinary

    Although we stay in Franz Josef most times on our West Coast trips we went for dinner to Fox for a change. And we really hit the jackpot. The Plateau Café & Bar serves excellent food. We had Caesar Salad with smoked salmon and Beer Battered Fish'n'Chips as our mains, and were delighted. In fact, the fish'n'chips were fabulous. So fabulous that I...

  • Some Nice Places and a not so Good Café

    As we stay in Franz Josef on a regular base and have been in most of the restaurants I can give a short overview here, without going into too much detail. If not mentioned otherwise they are located along the main road (SH6).The Landing:This is our favourite place for dinner, as it has a relaxed and busy atmosphere, a mixture of restaurant, café...

  • Black Bricks & Muddy Bacon for Horrible...

    This is a warning about the place where we once got the worst breakfast in the whole of New Zealand.The café is in Hokitika, and the name is Daneca's. It is located at the corner of Weld St. and Tancred St., and is part of the green building of the Jade Factory & Backpackers, opposite PR's, on the left side if you come from SH6. As said, we only...

  • A Hokitika Landmark

    This is not a place to go to every day as the prices of the award winning restaurant are rather high. But we enjoyed every bite we ate - fresh fish, lamb, steak and salads. I also enjoyed the atmosphere although we were sitting at a table without sea view in one of the bars.The hotel is a historic place, dating back to the 1860s when more than 100...

  • Great Value for (less) Money

    Once we were looking for a less expensive dining alternative in Hokitika, and the only choices were the Chinese buffet restaurant on Weld St (not bad but not delightful, BTW) and this Indian place. So we tried it. And thought it was very nice.The service was super friendly, and the food good. My husband had a curry and I had a spinach fish dish,...

  • The place is nicer than the food

    Stumpers is a nice café and restaurant (and now also offers accommodation) in the heart of Hokitika. They have big lunch and dinner menus which are reasonably priced. Or let's add: If you are used to the prices of fine dining restaurants in Christchurch. Not too long ago you could dine out on the West Coast and not get ripped off but those times...

  • Delicious Food with a Great West Coast...

    This is not a spot for the hasty traveller but a place to relax and indulge in the wonderful flavours of fine New Zealand cuisine, on a nice day best served on the deck with a view over the rough sea and the rocks of Cape Foulwind which is famous for its seal colony. The Bay House is sourrounded by sand, large flax bushes and cabbage trees.The food...

  • Hearty Food at the End of the World

    We have tested other dining options in Karamea but there is no other place which compares to the Karamea Village Hotel, be it the quality of the food or the great atmosphere. The bar and the restaurant are in separate rooms, and there is plenty of seating on the lawn in front of the hotel.Especially the bar has a great atmosphere, you think you can...
