The Salmon Tales Café is open 7 days a week from 8am. Naturally the menu has a large salmon focus with a range of options including Salmon Tales' own home cured salmon and pan fried salmon dishes. With everything made on the premises, our food is always fresh and inviting. A well-stocked cold cabinet together with an inviting menu ensures there is something for every taste.
We are the Cafe, Bar and Restaurant located adjacent to the "Big Salmon" in Rakaia. The complex also offers retail outlets selling local Arts & Crafts, New Zealand Wine and Cheese and Tourist Souvenirs and has an extensive information centre for you to browse.
Travelling from Christchurch cross over the Rakaia Bridge (The longest bridge in the Southern Hemisphere) as you arrive in the Rakaia Township you will see our cafe complex on the right side of the road.
Travelling from the South we are located at the North end of the township prior to crossing over the Rakaia Bridge.
