This historic, character hotel dates back to the 1800’s. The Talisman’s Landing Café & Bar is named after the spot on the river where Katikati’s Irish settlers landed. It’s well regarded by locals for dishes like the seafood chowder in entrée, and all-day gourmet, wood-fired pizzas.
You’ll pay from $14 for a light meal to around $35 for prime scotch fillet with all the trimmings. The café has an extensive wine list and Monteiths beers on tap (and a nice beer garden out back). Licensed. Open 10am (extended hours in summer).
