A business colleague recommended we have a meal here and we were not disappointed!! Absolutely beautiful. Local produce was used. We would definitely recommend a stop at this restaurant.

If you are anywhere near Te Anau and are alive, book now. Dinner for two for us tonight after a days walking and exploring (and a horrible lunch at one of the local tourist cafés). Simply wonderful, exquisite service, relaxed and cosy atmosphere, AND the the food! Superb. A real focus on seasonal local produce cooked to perfection and matched... More

This little restaurant is easy to miss because it's located in a small side street off the main shopping area, but it had been recommended. We were not disappointed. It's a charming building. The menu is really interesting with plenty of specialties based on fresh local produce. The service was outstanding and there were some very good NZ wines on... More

Food was fabulous. There were three of us and we each had something different. No one was disappointed! Nice bottle of wine and great dessert. It was our last night in Te Anu and this was a perfect place to have it!

Spent a wonderful evening having dinner in this small bar/restaurant. A quiet, mid=week winter night and the owner/chef spent time with us sharing his passion for good food and the fine dining experience. The food itself was excellent, locally sourced and one of the highlights of our 2 week South Island experience. A place not to be missed in Te... More

Small, cosy, very friendly and - really - terrifically prepared food. We really enjoyed our meal. Booking is essential - it really is a small place.

While staying in Te Anau visited the Redcliffe Cafe on recommendation from the motel manager. I went with my sister who I must say is more of a foodie than I am. I am of rather simple tastes where she is more adventurous. So I will provide a review from each of us. Both of us agree that the ambience... More

Quite literally the best meal I have ever had...anywhere in the world! The meat was succulent, the veggies were delicious and the dessert was to die for. We fantasised about how great this meal was for days after and if we ever visit Te Anau again it will purely be to eat at Redcliff. We had a great chat with... More

Cute restaurant, delicious food, perfect service. I'm a chef myself and for me this was really amazing. We shared the wild spreads, delicious, even the toasts are yummy. All look so fresh. My partner had the vegetarian plate which was really good, plenty of different veges. I chose the risotto, very good. And the dessert were unbelievable. I'm not a... More
