    Arataki Honey Visitor Centre

    Great place to visit and to learn about honey production. The gift shop was beautiful and you got to see bees at work and taste all the different honey varieties.

    These tours are well known locally and abroad alike. Mike the original guide has just retired and Nick has taken over. He is just as knowledgeable about wine and the area. Best way to see the bay.

    This little info centre/gift shop is a real treat. It's a great place to find out about the history of the town especially prior to the quake. The staff dress in the clothing from this period, which is a nice touch.

    Just a few minutes out of town this is an amazing and quite unique gallery in a relocated church. It offers beautiful, bright and very innovative art and food. Locally made and imported artefacts blend well in the well kept gardens.

    Westshore Beach Inn Bistro Restaurant

    This is a comfortable and well known 'local' style pub. Great craft beers and big, tasty but reasonably priced meals. An easy one to recommend.

    Nice restaurant on the sea front in an old victorian villa. The food is really quite good and the staff very attentive. It has a good reputation amongst the locals.

    It's hard to find Indonesian food in NZ so it is a welcomed experience when in the Bay. It is a cosy place where you are made to feel welcomed. There is a sampling style meal which was made up of a wide selection of unusual but tasty dishes and the accompaniments- especially the satay sauces are really good. Excellent prices with a nice local wine selection (also good value) makes this a great choice even for those travellers on a budget.

    Great Mexican place. The food, the drinks, the service & the whole experience was simply brilliant. The ribs were probably the best ribs I've ever had. Reasonable prices. Get there early though - its extremely popular & they don't take bookings.

    I really liked this Indian restaurant. We chose to share a banquet meal, which was great value. I found the food very tasty, the service charming and efficient and the overall experience excellent.
