The folks running our lodging gave Cyprus the "best" rating, and it was so good we went here for dinner both nights in Ohakune. A beautiful atmosphere, a long bar constructed out of a single piece of wood, great staff, and above all, great food, make this a delightful place to eat. The menu was varied and our biggest problem... More

Was recommended this place by our B&B host and was not disappointed! The ambiance is great. Many drink selections. I had the lamb pasta and it was so good! We also had the venison appetizer which was quite tasty as well. It was my friend's birthday and hey actually sang to her and gave her a little chocolate ice cream.... More

Husband ordered some chicken stuffed with cranberry dish which he loved. We also had the banoffee sundae & the apple crumble sundae both were served in glasses & tasted... More

We were recommended this restaurant from a local business and on arrival should have smelt a rat. Only three tables occupied. Service was slow even with this demand. Once meals arrived my wife's steak was wrong as the chef read the docket incorrectly! They had the audacity to ask if that was ok? NO, fix it then send it. Staff... More

Linguini undercooked and scallops probably previously frozen and thawed. But this a long way from the sea, so not surprising really. Average prices for average fare. Nice ambience and great staff.

We had two delicious pasta dinners with enough leftovers for a second meal. My pappardalle lamb with mint was fresh and bright tasting. Casual yet very welcoming atmosphere and good service.

Nice and cosy atmosphere. Relaxing music which was not too loud, which you don't see very often. One waiter and one waitress who were very very busy. Happy that I booked a table in advance. Had 2 mains, lamb and fish of the day, I asked if it was enough for us , without sides. Absolutely, was the answer. Quality... More

Great food. My wife had a steak which was cooked to perfection and of generous size. I had the chicken breast well cooked on a delicious rissoto.

Our family stayed in Ohakune for about 3 nights, and for 2 of those nights we dined here. An amazing view of the mountain just outside the window. The food was to die for, every dish ordered on both nights, from chicken to fish to steak - all equally magnificent. Also, the rhubarb dessert was a winner, a must try... More
