We used to go there alot as it was right infront of the beach. Some staff are friendly most are terribly rude and obnoxious. It's basically the only restaurant to go to with a good view here. Asked for the vegetarian option as stated to do so on the board. Was offered a pizza or a snack, ordered off the... More

This place is a pub with beers, pub grub and pub staff. Don't expect excellent food or excellent waiting and you'll be just fine. A bit expensive for what you get though.

We sat outside at the lovely terrace with sea view. We just drank something. They have a nice verity of drinks, beers, wine, etc. It is not cheap tho. But I would say it is absolutely worth it to drink a beer there especially after a great day in Abel Tasman.

An older gentleman made us our coffees, and they were outstanding. Great service from the young tattooed male and the restaurant looked tidy. Unfortunately the food was poor, and was no where near what it used to be. This used to be one of our favourite places to eat after going on the mountain bike park (which is awesome) hopefully...

We decided to have a meal at the Shoreline cafe after taking a tour on Wilson's cruise. The limited menu didn't disappoint - we chose the calamari and the gurnard - yum. The service and staff training could have been better. Overall we enjoyed the meal and the view is wonderful.

Great food, good prices and friendly staff. We ate there three times whilst in the resort and would happily go there again/ recommend to others without hesitation.

After driving from the West Coast, my husband and I stopped in for a pizza at 3:20 pm. The sign said open until 4 pm. The cashier told us they were closing soon, so I asked if we could just get a pizza to go. She said yes, but a grey-haired man stood behind her and rudely stated he would... More

While showing visiting friends/family around the Nelson Tasman region I have recently dined at the Shoreline Cafe three times in the last three months. Each time I have not only been disappointed but have come away feeling embarrassed that this is the kind of place our visitors are subject to. This may sound quite harsh but so is the reality....
