Boat Shed Cafe

Modern NZ in Ruby Coast & Moutere Hills

Look past the slightly odd location – the cafe's waterfront pavilion is reached by travelling through the Mapua Leisure Park – and focus on views of nearby Rabbit Island and a menu combining diverse international influences. Flavours include Vietnamese beef tartare, fish carpaccio and one of the South Island's best gourmet cheeseburgers, and the surprising drinks list is exceedingly local.
