Description: Cafe Cortado is located on the Picton waterfront with beautiful views over Queen Charlotte Sound and Picton marina. We have spacious outdoor and indoor dining areas. Our a-la-carte menus include fresh nz seafood including our delicious creamy seafood chowder and our very popular seafood platter. We use free range chicken and eggs in our menus and everything is cooked from scratch. We are the restaurant of choice for our local community for breakfast, lunch, dinner, pizzas, tapas as well as our wine and beer selection.

Popped in for a dinner after a long day driving and having done no research on alternatives. Very impressed with atmosphere, prompt friendly service, restrained music and although TV showing football did not have a traditional sports bar feel. Largest beers I have seen in New Zealand, and the quality of pizza and vegetable quesadillas were excellent! Desserts more forgettable though, oddly, with a step change in calibre. Cute dog meandering around too! Lovely venue and worth a visit.

Café Cortado has great pizzas and welcoming surroundings, the staff are efficient and friendly, the atmosphere is relaxing the view from the café is across the waterfront. The prices are reasonable and the range of pizza flavours are good, plus they make great desserts.

Was staying in Picton for the night and asked for a recommendation from our host as to where to dine, their first recommendation was Cortado's - so off there we go.

Was a Friday night so relatively full, they couldn't provide a table for two but asked if we were happy to share a long table with another couple which we agreed to.

Drinks orders soon taken and menu explained by a friendly waiter. Orders soon taken - we went for the 5 Tapas platter, when ordering we were advised that due to a busy kitchen there may be delays in the food being served.

Passing time with the other couple at our table despite the warning, our food soon arrived - a great selection , good quantity and real tasty.

Turned our to be a real enjoyable evening, good service, great food and good company. A great recommendation by the locals.
