Lonely Planet review

Inexplicably named after a British navy frogman who went missing in 1956, Buster Crabb overcomes a silly name to transform a spacious heritage-listed villa into a cosmopolitan dining experience. Local farming types – doing very well thank you – crowd in for scallops, pork belly, venison and blue cod. A tiny deck is a late afternoon suntrap, and it’s one of the only places in town that serves the Invercargill Brewery’s excellent Pitch Black stout on tap.
