Karaka Lobster

Premium Seafood & Cafe  

Drop in to Karaka Lobster on your East coast travels and treat yourself to the best crayfish in New Zealand.

Boasting fresh seafood like no other, our new locally owned cafe resides by the crystal waters of Okiwi Bay, 35km north of Kaikoura.

Our incredible team work day-in-day-out to provide you with the most authentic, flavoursome, locally caught crayfish in the country.  We are proud to catch all our produce daily in a sustainably and friendly manner, and bring to you a cray cooked to utter perfection. 

We offer plenty of parking space for caravans, campers and trailers, so take your time to venture about while our friendly staff brew the perfect coffee, or relax and enjoy your meal while gazing out at the stunning ocean view.

If you're a traveller tight on time... no problem! 

Grab your takeaway coffee and freshly packed crayfish for the road!! 

We want to make your Kiwi experience one to remember, so we look forward to seeing you in store!
