 Park Cafe, Marahau

The history of The Park Cafe is a story of dedication and passion from Jane & Yirka Ritschny to provide quality food and drinks from a unique venue at the gateway to The Abel Tasman National Park.  Their journey began in 1986 what was at the end of a gravel road that leads into one of the most beautiful spots in New Zealand.... some might say the world.

Early days at the Park Cafe saw a purpose built wagon with a shady veranda which was a welcome site for the foot sore and weary.

Above are images before we moved into our current Park Cafe building. This is the original bridge that took you across to the start of the Abel Tasman National Park it washed away many times, big changes all round from then until now.    

The Ritschny's and the Park Cafe proved to be a very successful seasonal business and the decision was made to approach D.O.C. about a permanent restaurant after they had improved on the car park that had been in place. This was approved which saw The Park Cafe move into its new premises in November 1992.

Since then Jane & Yirka have added many additions to the Park Cafe, wonderful outside eating areas with shady natural coverage, private eating areas, a hugely popular pizza oven and an every expanding menu with all homemade or locally sourced, organic where possible fresh delicious dishes made daily for you to enjoy.
