We had dinner at Kepler during our stay in Te Anu. We walked their which was really easy. Nice service and very good food. I had the seafood platter which was fresh and a nice assortment of seasonal fish & shellfish. Be sure to book early since it's quite busy in high season.

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 in Te Anau.

Three of the four of us had the Pasta of the Day which included lots of seafood. The fourth had Paella. All of us enjoyed our food. We enjoyed a bottle of Pinot Noir from Central Otago – a Bannockburn called Carrick – that was very good. And Duo Chocolate for dessert. Yum!

We toured the entire country, stumbling from the tip of the North to the tip of the South exploring interesting and insane things along the way. This was our favorite restaurant, the service, the food. It is the only place in the entire country that we chose to eat at twice. Wonderful people. Venison and Seafood.

Having driven down from Queenstown en route to Milford Sound we had an overnight stop here. I have to say at 7 pm in May (autumn) dinner didn't look available or promising, however we spotted Kepler. Staff were really helpful, food was fabulous, wine choices really good, bottles beer was pretty good too. Really glad we found it, even though it closed at 2030, we managed to stay there until just gone 9! Top place.

This is an expensive restaurant and we were expecting an excellent meal and service. I ordered salmon. The first mouthful had a bone in it. I found three more. In the low lighting trying to see the bones was difficult. The waitress was disinterested when I told her. On the plate was a small bowl which contained a tasteless white mixture which when I asked was told it was a cauliflower soufflé. I am sure it had been made prior and then reheated. The only identifiable taste was some cheese on top that had hardened. Would never go there again or recommend.
