The Frontier Café & Bar

The Frontier Café & Bar offers a 'country pub' style. Talk to the locals and enjoy the atmosphere, as you refuel or unwind during your stay in Haast.

Rugged West Coast cuisine

The West Coast has its share of tasty treats from the surrounding rugged natural environment, from game meats to the famous West Coast whitebait. With either buffet dining (seasonal) from our carvery in the Waiatoto Room to our casual café and hearty pub style fare in the Frontier Café & Bar we will ensure that you leave happy and contented. 

The Arawhata Bar is open seasonally in conjunction with The Waiatoto Room which offers a cozy escape to while away the evening.
