Upgraded and up-sized cafe and shop now open!

We would like to extend an invitation to you to see the fantastic changes that have happened in our Fish Bowl Cafe and Treasure Chest Gift Shop. The builders have been in and worked wonders and we now have a bigger and brighter space for you to enjoy.

What's new??

1. The shop and café are now open to the general public as well as aquarium visitors. A new entrance directly into the café and shop allows easy access, and a full café service will operate from 8am through to 4.30pm daily offering dine in and takeaway options. 

2. We have a new menu and a talented on site chef cooking up mouth-watering treats! Robert Marr joins our team and comes with excellent experience from his previous roles at the Mission Estate Winery in Hawke’s Bay as well as many cafe's and restaurants around New Zealand. Take a sneak peak at our all day menu featuring local and fresh produce! If you have kiddies – check out the Tackle Box meal!

3. Expanded outdoor seating area. We live in one of the sunniest places in New Zealand, so come and enjoy our larger outdoor seating area where you can enjoy a tasty treat, soak up the sun and watch the world go by.

4. Move to compostable takeaway packaging.   With far too many takeaway coffee cups going to landfill, the Fish Bowl Cafe has taken the initiative and moved to fully compostable takeaway packaging.  Our packaging is now made from plants, not oil.  Any of this packaging collected onsite is now sent to be commercially composted by Bio Rich Ltd in Hastings and will help make a difference to our environment.

We look forward to seeing you at the National Aquarium of New Zealand soon and we would love your feedback on the changes.

Kind regards - Rob and the team!
