If you are into a complete dining experience then this is unmatched in Wanaka.
World class food and experience at a price which is ridiculously cheap given its quality and finesse.
Amazing local produce presented in a modern but appetising way. Matched wines are a treat and also very good value.

Wanaka does not yet appreciate what a gem they have in Ode , which is truly in a class of its own locally.

We ate at Ode on New Years even. I was impressed that they hadn't changed their price and we had the 3 course $55 menu. Each dish was beautifully presented with the starter and main in particular being extremely tasty. Over the past couple of years I have started to question the point of fine dining but I wouldn't really say that is what Ode is. It's contemporary cooking that is presented really well but is still at the lower prices that you're starting to see many of the best restaurants come in at.

Dessert wasn't as good as the starter and main (honeycomb, ice cream and peach) as it had flavours that didn't really compliment each other.

We stayed 4 days in Wanaka and we had the chance to try several restaurants there. Ode blew our mind. The price is more expansive than what you will find in town but the experience is also very different.
You have to admire what those guys are doing (and doing well). We had the 5 courses tastings (which is more a 9 in total if you take in account all the small appetisers, sensei etc...
We really enjoy the chef coming and explaining all the dishes when they serve it.
Don't expect a quick dinner here. It is a journey through what NZ offers and it takes some times - it took us circa 2h30 which was extremely pleasant not be rushed.

Thanks for another enjoyable evening. This has become our favourite restaurant in Wanaka. We recently dined at a 5 star winery in Queenstown and it showed how your standard is equally up there if not better. It is a hidden gem, always full of delicious surprises by the talented cook.

If you haven’t tried it yet you are missing out. It is by far the best food around this area.

I have a new appreciation for good food.

Thanks -we will see you again.
