Breakfast at Manakau Lodge is a relaxed, leisurely and civilised affair. Our breakfast menu offers a great choice of freshly-prepared favourites and traditional dishes to suit all tastes. We use only the freshest, highest quality ingredients available to us, all prepared and cooked to order. 

For guests booked on an early-morning marine excursion, or with an early start to their onward journey, we can offer a breakfast-to-go of fresh fruits, yoghurt, muffins, fruit juice and coffee.

Breakfast is served at the time of your choosing, in the comfort of our dining room. The perfect start to the day!

Evening Dining

For guests not wishing to drive to town for dinner, we offer a choice of cheese and supper platters, accompanied by first class New Zealand wines served by the glass, carafe or bottle. We shop to order for our fresh ingredients, and so guests are asked to let us know in advance if a platter is required for the evening of their arrival.  

Our summer platter menu can be found here.



We offer the option of a dinner service for guests reserving all four rooms of the Lodge (minimum six guests). A typical dinner menu can be seen here.

We are very happy to suggest and discuss alternative menus, whether for family celebrations, special occasions, company get-togethers, or just a gathering of old friends. Please let us know of your requirements.
