Our family just came from dinner at Out in the Styx. The four course dinner would be hard to match anywhere. We travel extensively and love good food so this fine restaurant pleased us immensely. The beef, the salmon, the yam dish, the homemade ice cream, the wine, the coffee, everything was top notch. We highly recommend this unique place... More

We stayed a night after doing the 'Over The Mountain Walk' at Mungatautari, well worth the effort, and enjoyed a relaxing spa afterwards. Lance and Mary were lovely hosts - nothing was a bother and both had great knowledge of the area and it's attractions. The evening meal and breakfast were fabulous lots of lovely fresh and tasty dishes -... More

Wonderful spot to stay with stunning views. Strongly advise that you don't eat much for two days prior to your visit and you will not need food for a day or so afterwards. Mary and Lance are superb hosts, meals are beautifully prepared, there is a great atmosphere with a spa to sit in at any time of the day... More

I have just returned from Out In the Styx Lodge and Café and a fantastic Dinner and Breakfast were included in the price of our room! The evening meal consisted of Soup, Main Course, and Dessert, all of which were absolutely delicious. And the breakfast was cereal, fruit, yoghurt, etc. plus toast and jam, and then a Fritata. We were... More

This is a destination rural restaurant, about 40 minutes from Hamilton. Menu options are "take it or leave it", but why would you leave it. Delicious variety of soup, mains, salads and deserts. Well stocked bar. Friendly staff

Such a lovely, homely atmosphere.... Friendly personable staff.... Warm log fire.... Just right for a chilly winter's night escape from my own kitchen! The food was wholesome, healthy and mm mmmmm ... scrumptious! We live "out in the sticks" ourselves and so there aren't any decent eateries nearby, so every now and again we make an extra effort and travel... More

We took a tour group to this restaurant & relished every morsel! The group was our Sunday Lunch Club, & many of them said it was one of their favourite eateries - and we've been to a few! We had such delights as a couscous, salmon prawn salad flavoured with kaffir lime & lemon grass; beetroot & red cabbage salad... More

I stayed with Lance and Mary while enjoying a Ventouro Cycling Camp. The Styx is not expensive but what a fabulous place and great value for money. I enjoyed an intimate atmosphere where nothing is too much trouble. The basics are done to an extremely high standard and the food is made from fresh ingredients and is plentiful. Lance is... More

Beyond all expectation. When they said dinner was included, I did not realise Mary produces culinary miracles! Great room, great view, great company and an amazing wild life tour by Phil (thanks Phil!).
