Neat Places has a guide for what to do with 12 hours in Oamaru.
Both are owned by Pablo and Yanina Tacchini who have just opened Del Mar:
Opening the doors to their newest restaurant was a bittersweet moment for Yanina and Pablo Tacchini, who could not have family with them for the special occasion.
Del Mar Eatery and Beach Bar opened to the public this week and was already fully booked for tomorrow night, Mrs Tacchini said.
The couple signed the lease on the former Portside restaurant building in September and have been flat out ever since, with the goal of being open for the summer.
Mrs Tacchini, who is from Argentina, said her parents should have been here for the opening, but because of Covid-19 it was not possible for them to travel to New Zealand. . .
The plan for Del Mar was fast, simple fresh food and gelato that could be enjoyed on the premises or taken down to the beach. . .
We were at a pre-opening function last Monday and will definitely be back – often.
