Cafe in Marahau

This popular place reels them in, so dinner reservations are recommended. The art-bedecked interior opens on to an outdoor terrace with distracting views. Lunch centres on salads and seafood, while the dinner menu boasts fresh fish of the day – ask if bluenose is available – green-lipped mussels and NZ lamb shanks. Pop in for happy hour drinks from 4pm to 6pm.

If you're heading out on the water, Hooked can hook you up with sandwiches to go.
