We had had a bad experience booking accommodation online and were very pleased to be referred to Riverstone by an Information office in Westport. Unfortunately the restaurant is not operational at the moment. The garden/bush setting is quiet and there are only two chalets so it is private. The... read more

Went here in a group of 6. Stayed the night so had dinner and breakfast. The meals were excellent with well humoured and attentive service. I would highly recommend this restaurant and accommodation. 10 out of 10! Well done Dave and the team.

As a frequent guest I can say that the food is always top class as is the hospitality. Everyone is made to feel welcome. With family staying over the holidays we have been frequent customers at the Summer Friday night barbecues, which are very family-friendly. The managers are very obliging and cater for all your whims and fancies. And by... More

Absolutely Fabulous - The Food, The Service and The Setting. Prices were reasonable, staff welcoming and very helpful - special dietary requirements were not an issue, and the 'window seat' with a view overlooking the Karamea River and farmland over to the rugged mountain range was incredible.

Let's be honest, it's not cheap, but was it worth it? Hell yeah! Ate here on 27 march 2012 the lamb was just to die for for, the beer cold and poured nicely.

Possibly the best pasta dish I've ever had. The other meals in our group were also to a very high standard. Really enjoyed it - were late eating so was getting dark but a beautiful spot should have come earlier to enjoy the view and the fire would be lovely during the winter!

And there was no one else there, making dinner a little eerie. We were staying there, and the chalet was nice inside, but had a limited view because of flora. Nice, but seemed a bit under-utilized. Friendly owners and friendly cats helped a little.

Salmon was excellent, presentation was superb. A very nice meal in a location where you wouldn't expect it.
