Fabulous

What a wonderful little place. Awesome meal, we had the Hare, Venison and Rib Eye the best meal we've had on our trip to Bluff. Plum tart and yoghurt sorbet for dessert. Highly recommended.

We had this place recommended to us by almost every local we spoke to. Two of us had the Sole and one ordered the steak. The sole itself was delicious, as were the baby carrots. Unfortunately the brussel sprouts were slightly too underdone, and the roast kumara (I would have preferred a mash) were so dry I couldn't eat them.... More

Great food - shared a starter of various breads & dips followed by mains of venison & grouper fish. Quite a small restaurant with a good atmosphere, so booking advisable.

We stopped by for some delicious cake and a sandwich from the cabinet. Everything was very good and the cafe's atmosphere was very inviting and cozy.

Very cosy restaurant. We were well looked after. My Husband had the goat curry. Loved the fact that I had a candle stuck in my dessert (truffles) accompanied by Happy Birthday.

We were very pleasantly surprised by the Redcliff. Our service was very attentive and precise, our meals were prepared exactly as we expected and it was not as pricey as we had originally thought. We had been to restuarants from Aukland to Queenstown, and enjoyed this one the best. My favorite entree was the Vension Backstrap.

We went to this place on recommendation of a friend, and we weren't disappointed. Service was attentive and the food was excellent. We particularly liked the option of having a tasting paddle of three local wines for the price of a single glass of wine. This provided us with the opportunity to sample a number of local wines with our... More

Lovely intimate atmospere, with very friendly staff and a typically New Zealand menu using local produce. The Backstrap of Hare was delicious as was the venison - reservations are essential.

Delicious and very accommodating of my families dairy and gluten allergy. Staff were super friendly and there's even a giant playpark across the road if the kids need to burn some energy. The seaweed wrapped salmon was fantastic.
