Kepler is a wonderful restaurant. The food is delicious, the service is excellent, the wine selection is vast. My only wish is that they had more options on the menu. On your way to Milford Sounds, treat yourself to a dinner at Kepler.

Be sure to make reservations in advance as the Kepler Restaurant is popular. And for good reason as the food and service are both really good. There is plenty of parking but the restaurant is centrally located so it's an easy walk from most anywhere...More

We would think it should be able to accommodate your friend but it would be best to contact Kepler directly to enquire.
