The Coromandel Oyster Company

A farm gate eatery serving up the freshest fare for hungry travellers.

As summer dwindles before our eyes, we say our goodbyes to balmy nights, salty skin and sandy feet. But one summer pastime we do not yet need to say good-bye to is fish and chips. For this, we head to a favourite seaside eatery called The Coromandel Oyster Company.

Located on the outskirts of Coromandel Town, The Oyster Company is a regular stop-off for weekenders, locals and tourists alike. For myself and many Coromandel bound Aucklanders, it’s a must visit on almost every trip.

Albeit basic, the food at The Coromandel Oyster Company is consistently delicious. Oysters are of course the crowning glory and are available to buy either in the full shell, half shell or by the pot. Anything you choose, whether it be the famous mussel chowder or the beautifully light and fresh fish and chips, you can’t help but devour as the sea breeze engulfs you.

The meals at The Coromandel Oyster Company are best enjoyed eaten fresh on-site or otherwise quickly bundled off to the nearest beach. While the ‘restaurant’ may not serve your fish and chips with silver service and a chef shucking oysters to order, it’s the raw wooden benches, the rope bound stools and the salty air that make this place so special.
