The Mussel Inn is located in the heart of Golden Bay, North West Nelson region of the South Island of New Zealand. A two hour drive from Nelson, over the Takaka hill, through the township of Takaka and on another 17kms towards Collingwood you will find yourself in Onekaka. Keep your eyes peeled, for the Mussel Inn is very subtly sign-posted but can often be recognised by the many cars parked on the roadside - especially on a busy night.
The fare is simple and wholesome and as much as possible, prepared in our own kitchen. Famous for our fresh steamed mussels and thick mussel chowder, we also do steak, fish and vegetarian options and a range of snacky foods are always available.
We also produce all our own beers, ales, ciders soft drinks and occasional house wines in a small brewery located adjacent to the Mussel Inn. Home made lemonade and ginger beer will please those looking for something non-alcoholic and a small selection of Nelson area wines and a basic range of spirits.
