Enjoy your vacation in the beautiful coastal town of Kaikoura, New Zealand and make stops at some of the best restaurants in the island.
The native Kaikoura treats that you should never miss out on include crayfish and the delicious fish and chips served at Beach Road.
Fresh crayfish is almost always on sale at the Waipapa Bay Lobsters, which is thirty-two kilometers north of Kaikoura. It’s rare to find frozen crayfish there because they are caught and eaten fresh. Take your pick at one of the outdoor tables in Waipapa Bay Lobsters and feast on delicious seafood.
You can also eat and relax over at The Strawberry Tree and enjoy its wonderful beer garden. During winter, you can sip The Strawberry Tree’s own beer called Sheep Shagger’s lager while making an open fire for warmth. Live music and a sumptuous selection of crayfish, blue cod, mussels, and sea food chowder are what you can expect at The Strawberry Tree.
And don’t forget to get your fill of amazingly tasty fish and chips at the famous Top Shop Fish and Chips along Beach Road.
