My niece had a friend from college in the states, and his sister worked at the Redcliff Restaurant. We decided to stop in to introduce ourselves. Although we did not eat here, the menu looked fantastic and they had entertainment in the bar area which was wonderful. The restaurant was fully book, so to me that was also a good... More

Great food and wine was had by everyone! Wait staff were knowledgable, helpful and efficient! Food was delicious and filling! Stayed for a few more drinks in the bar after dinner, met some hilarious locals and were looked after by the excellent bar staff during our time there. I recommend this joint to anyone cruising through Te Anau

Although bigger on the inside than first appears from the outside, this restaurant still seemed smaller than others in Te Anau. Despite that, we enjoyed a nice meal with both of us enjoying venison with a nice bottle of wine. We dined on what appeared to be a busy night for the restaurant and the wait staff seemed a bit...

Happened upon this restaurant by chance when in Te Anau. We have eaten in some of the top rated restaurants in New Zealand and I rate this better than many of them. The food was unpretentious, amazing flavours and just that little bit different presenting local produce at it's best. This is what I would call a real food restaurant... More

I had a greatest here. I had the trio of the sea which was amazing especially the blue cod followed by the peppermint lamb which was cook to perfection but no taste of peppermint at all. Overall a great place with friendly and helpful staff

In a month of great meals throughout New Zealand, Redcliff is at the top of our list. The staff is delightful - there is no other word for it: welcoming, enthusiastic, efficient, and very knowledgeable about the menu, making great recommendations. The menu is varied but not extensive, making it a bit easier to decide. Still, I wish we had... More

Beautiful and delicious food! They are known for their game meats--loved the Wild Goat Shank Masala Curry, meat was falling off the bone! Didn't care so much for the fried onion ball that accompanied it though. The Crispy Dug Leg was nice, wished there was more duck and less noodle. :) Great backyard patio area for dining if the weather... More

We were advised by our host at the lodge where we are staying to try this restaurant - we were extremely happy with the advice. For starters we had the local meat platter. I had the venison option as main and my partner had the rib eye steak (blue blue). We finished off with a cheese platter. All i can... More

Loved by locals and those from further afield. Can be busy especially on a Friday but were made very welcome especially with no reservation. We were very pleased we visited as the crispy duck legs and venison were to die for!

We did not have a reservation as we followed the advice from Lonely Planet - which was wrong as they do accept reservations! Luckily we quickly got a table and enjoyed the excellent food. Warning: the size of the portion is typically NZ!
