We visited The Landing early evening midweek. The French staff member on duty was professional, friendly & highly efficient. The restaurant is modern & light with views of the lake from its first floor location. The menu was varied but limited, loved the idea of big or small choices. We had the chicken roulade & lamb followed by a cheese... More

My dinner was delicious and the service was exemplary! We shared three starters and one main. Each dish that we tried was so unique and flavourful, the chefs are very talented. Such a great place to catch up with a friend overlooking lake wanaka at sunset. Absolutely fantastic evening!!

The food and service lacked consistency. It was a quiet Friday night,so the waiter knocked off mid meal and went and sat at the bar,leaving other staff and to complete the service.The spinach soup,however,was excellent.

We had dinner here and it was superb. The French waiter was attentive but not overbearing, the food and view was to die for. Very impressive.

Just walked in off the street to be warmly greeted. Had a choice of tables and courteous service. Menu had plenty to interest but was not overcrowded - too many choices, usually results in a lack of care in the kitchen. I had the lamb special and my wife had an amazingly good monkfish dish. It looked good and she... More

Can honestly say I had one the best dinners in NZ. Couldn't fault a single thing! Stunning location on the lakeside, beautiful food and excellent service! Will definitely return when I'm back in the south island!!

We live locally and love the chefs at the new Landing! I mostly order fish or veggie dishes when I go out and these guys get really excited about vegetables. Total gourmet deliciousness...delicate pumpkin foams with hint of cumin surrounding the spinach dumpling or the amazing smoked flavour in the puy lentil/mushroom dish (can't recall exactly what was in it...

I have been twice this winter. The restaurant has changed owners in the last year and they are doing a wonderful job. I shared the Lamb Cannelloni an Jamon Croquettes to start..followed by the Pork Terrine. Our table was served by the new owner and she was fantastic and passionate. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will be back many... More
