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 17 kms 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 Mussel Inn is open from 11am till late, seven days a week.
We close for Christmas day and from mid July to mid September when we shut down for repairs and maintenance and staff recharging.
From boxing day till the middle of January is our busiest time. If you choose to visit us during that time, meal wait times are to be expected - but hey ~ what a great place to wait
No bookings, no byo - take us as you find us.
