I've been to Wanaka a few times and I keep coming back to Big Fig. The food is Mediterranean inspired and so tasty. Choose a plate size then choose your meat, veg, and sides. Beer and wine also available.

Went there a few times. The food is wholesome. Slow-cooked meat is not my thing, but the other options very nice. Although I would recommend some other protein options, eg salmon or tofu.... As not enthralled with the slow cooked meat, I had the simple...More
