Great dining in Kaikoura - TripAdviser Reviews
"The Pier Hotel / restaurant was recommended as a must-do in Kaikoura. We went for dinner on our first night and liked it so much, we came back another time. Great food, very friendly staff and nice ambiance."
The bar, with its historical photographs and cosy atmosphere has been patronised for over a century by the coastal whaling and fishing fleets, giving it the authentic ambiance you would expect in a country “local”.
