Havelock, Marlborough, Greenlip Mussel Capital of the World

After exploring the Marlborough Sounds and walking tracks the perfect place to relax and enjoy local produce and wines is The Mussel Pot Restaurant & Cafe

If travelling in the upper regions of the South Island then Havelock is a must stop destination.

A picturesque fishing village that is gateway to the Marlborough Sounds and boasts being the “Green Lip Mussel Capital of the World.”

The perfect place to try these tasty shellfish is The Mussel Pot Restaurant and Cafe.

They serve these molluscs in a variety of ways but we were also able to choose crayfish, scallops and salmon as well as local beef and lamb off the menu.

We enjoyed sitting by the cosy fire and sipping on great Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and we will definitely be back in summer to enjoy the outdoor dining area and the yummy breakfast menu (oh dear no mussels on it).
