I came here with my son for lunch. We ordered eggs Benedict and a chicken Caesar burger along with drinks. The service was friendly and the drinks and meal were delivered promptly. Scrummy wedges. Nice view of the beach

The Tasman region is famous for its local produce, wines, beers and ciders and there is no better place to enjoy this than Shoreline Restaurant & Cafe at Kaiteriteri. Enjoy a delicious meal, relax on the beach-side deck with a coffee or savour a cocktail at the bar. What a view of Tasman Bay!
