  • We were on holiday mid winter and dropped in to buy some fresh salmon for dinner and feed some fish. The car park and walkways were very wet and full of puddles. The store was fairly average, as was t...  more »
  • Experienced to fed the fish for free. They also sell fresh salmon! Managed to take away 1 cut-piece salmon and regret for not buying more. Amazing view as well!  more »

  • Since coming to the South Island I have visited 3 salmon farms and High Country Salmon is by far the best!! It was the only one to offer free food to feed the fish. The salmon was cheaper per kg and the fresh produce was tastier!! We had sashimi and it was melt in your mouth delicious! We also bought some fresh salmon and pan fried it. Absolutely beautiful! If you are anywhere near the area it is definitely worth a visit!! 5 *
  • Salmon was delicious, very different from the sea water Salmon and the meat is tight and tasty. The cut was bit disappointing, we were offered toothpicks and the salmon pieces were still attached to each other! Price was not bad. We ordered a Salmon Sashimi 400g and a soup, the soup came as cold... Staff members knew little about the farm and the products.
  • Feed the salmon with the free food supplied and watch the waters churn as the fish rise to feed. Purchase fresh salmon to enjoy one of New Zealands best fish for dinner, vacuum packed for freshness. Or take the small packs to taste immediately.
  • Agreed with Nuala. It seems to be a small cottage for the dining in, but a really big farm you can feed the fishes in the farm too, not the ducks though. Don't feed the ducks, as instructed. Cheap and fresh salmon really, compared with another bigger salmon restaurant somewhere else in South Island.
  • Nice floating Cafe to have break in middle of your trip and have lunch Fresh and cooked Fresh water salmon are available here. -I tried 3 foods from their menu and all were awesome. -low and affordable price. Live Fresh water salmon and trout can be seen here and feed (Do not feed trout and duck as posted on sign :) )
