Great restaurant. Chef was very accommodating of our special requests, despite the fact they were exceptionally busy & short staffed.

Thank sarsdow

Great hospitality started at the door step and continued throughout the evening. Backed up by 5 great dinners true to our expectations. The desserts weren't needed but we couldn't resist. All different and all excellent. We didn't rate 5 so they keep striving. Many thanks for a great night.

Called in for lunch, though it’s equally good for breakfasts and evening meals. We managed to get a table on the veranda overlooking Lake Wanaka - a lovely spot.

I had Blue Cod, Mrs D went for the Ceaser Salad. Both competently cooked and served. NZ$60 with drinks, we we through was reasonable for the quality of the food and the view.

Recommended.

I cut my leg on the bolt on their outside table, was bleeding quite a lot. I used a plethora of napkins then moved inside and continued to wait for our food. Food was nice and staff were friendly, but overall experience wasn’t. Would be nice to go back there and see if those bolts were rounded off, capped or replaced.

Myself and our friendly staff are very dissapointed that you have rated us on you scratching your knee on a table. It is what is called an accident. We did not make the tables and you are the first person in 3 years to have scratched a knee on them. You could have simply advised us so we could give you a sticking plaster or rang an ambulance if required. We will adjust the bolts just incase somebody else manages to get their knee up high enough to scratch their knee. Please accept our apoligy and when your back make yourself know to our freindly staff who work very hard to get excellent Tripadvisor reviews.

Decided to visit here just for some dinner . We ordered and was informed that there would be a slight wait for food which was fine, if the food was good.
Quite simply , I don't appreciate finding metal in my food , not hygienic, not a good example of suitable food prep or quality control of food.

Hi Liam. Please accept our apoligy again as we did apoligize and refunded your money for the meal plus drinks . We do have a council grading certificate of 'A' grade (excellent). We do have a excellent food control but unfortunatley we have no control over the company who make and bag the frozen potato fries that are supplied around New Zealand. It is impossible to inspect every individual potato chip as we cook over 3,000 chips a day. Once again please accept our apoligy and hope to see you again.
