After a long walk we decided to have a drink and a snack. The service was friendly and the food tasty.

views, food, atmosphere were all excellent , unfortunately when we first arrived there were 3 staff at the bar where we stood and waited for some form of service or even acknowledgement that we were there but there was none , not even a "will be with you shortly" we found some menus and tables and sorted ourselves out.

We enjoyed a late dinner at 8pm on a Monday night. The staff seemed quite busy and rushed, but still took the time to seat us immediately - which was appreciated as we'd just come from walking the Milford track. The food wait was not long 15-20mins max. We were thrilled with our meals - as most hungry hikers are.... More

Stopped in for lunch on an extremely hot nz summers day. I was grateful for a cold beer but was sadly let down with the quality of the meal. Ordered a seafood basket, which was huge, but not up to scratch in terms of how it was cooked and was overly salted (cunning ploy to get you to buy more... More

We got the rib steak with shrimp and scallops and it was quite good. This is a pub/sports bar style restaurant. The people were friendly and there was a good selection of beers.

Dropped in for a beer and stayed for dinner after the glow worm cave tour. We both had the 300 gm prime rump steak which was cooked as requested, tasty and tender with a good serve of vegetables. Great value for money, the only downside was the bar service which was a little slow.

It is what it is... a higher class tavern, but it does it so well! Whether it's a beer, wine, food or pool, inside or outside - the Moose has plenty of space, especially if you are a large group. The staff are very helpful and accommodating. There is a small lounge area with an open fire - always comforting... More

This pub serves great food in enormous portions. The ribs were really delicious. The staff were friendly and went to the trouble of finding out some information regarding a specific drink.

Having wandered the lake side and town we thought this restaurant fitted our needs nicely. We arrived just after half past seven and the place was jammed to the rafters with diners. We were told that if we wanted to there would be a delay for a table and a further 15-20 minutes for a food order. We decided to... More

A family friendly restaurant and bar located on the shore of Beautiful Lake Te Anau. We have it all, from an exciting kids menu to a whole range of styles of our signature dish - The good ol' steak! Whether you chose to sit in our fantastic beer garden and enjoy the sunshine while watching the sailing boats on the lake, or to join in the atmosphere while cheering for your team on the big screen, or to have a flutter on one of our 2 TAB machines, or dance the night away to one of our many live music acts - there's something for everyone, here at the Moose.... It's everybody's local!
