Good food in original location

One of the best dinner during our trip in NZ. Location very beautiful and wellcoming. We appreciated also attentions about wines and original way to taste them. Out son (7 years) was very happy with children menu: good and funny different small dishes.

We had a birthday celebration at Redcliffs, the food was fantastic (especially the kids platter!) Great location, quaint setting and furnishings, we sat out the back undercover. The Lamb shanks were delicious, the presentation of all meals was fantastic.

We went in the winter and arrived around 8pm. We were definitely the last table to be seated that night, but the hostess greeted us graciously and sat us.

There were no large tables left, but we were given a really cosy table in the entrance area by the log fire. Front of house was superb, lovely lady who was attentive, efficient... More

It's good but not a woooo good. $35-$40 for main course. I ordered the smoked lamb while the others in my family both ordered the lamb shank. No disappointment.

This cosy place is almost a guarantee of cook cooking and a dining experience to treasure. Went with guests from overseas and we all had delicious meals, including perfect venison. Most memorable was the Wild Goat Ragu. Just oozing with flavor!

Love this place! Visiting from the North island and loved the service, food was also fantastic. Had the seafood entree which was Devine, also enjoyed the duck. Very reasonable price and warm and cosy atmosphere.

Well, i got a couple of recommendations from the receptionists, one of them being redcliff... Impressive how the guys created & keep this peaceful friendly atmosphere. Food was delicious, service...
