If you like what we're doing, please share our listing.

Relax and chill at the beach

We are all about casual summer dining and an awesome place to catch up with your mates and family. We're only three kilometres walk, bike or taxi from Ferry Landing and a short drive from Hot Water Beach or Cathedral Cove. 

Indoor and outdoor casual dining 

The relaxed atmosphere of both indoor and outdoor areas means that you can wander in from the beach or jump off your bike and enjoy our hospitality. Appreciate the fresh air under our umbrellas while sipping on a great selection drinks, including craft beers or NZ wines.  

Casual menu and takeaway pizzas

Pizzas are our speciality and we also have a great range of  burgers and good honest kiwi fare. 

Don’t feel like cooking? Enjoy an ice cold drink while you wait for a takeaway pizza – please note we do not take phone orders for our takeaway food.


Be entertained with us this summer! Keep an eye out on our Facebook & Instagram pages for live music events. Come along and enjoy our big screen. We'll be showcasing sports events, including rugby games and Americas Cup races throughout the summer. 

Bookings not essential 

There’s no need to book, except for groups of 12 or more, then we advise you give us call in advance, so we ensure we have a space for you all organised.

A relaxed and happy feel is what we are all about. So come on in and grab a table, relax and chill at The Vessel.

The Vessel Owner – Mel Orbell

We will take care of your hunger and thirst.
