Every time we come home to visit, top on the list of things to do, is to go to "Tony's". This place never changes (in the very best of ways). The food is always great, love, love having a sole fillet and bluff oysters!!!

I went to the Buller Cafe especially for a meal of fresh locally caught fish. I was not disappointed. The meal was delicious, well presented and well priced. Would recommend this cafe.
