Came here with a group of friends after a day out exploring Franz Josef and Fox glaciers. Great food and drinks. Also came on a day when they had a quiz night. Good fun.

Before here the best burger I'd had was in the Skygarden brasserie at the WalkiecTalike in London. I'd say this on was better and also was about a fifth of the cost.

Great outdoor experience even in winter with all those gas heaters. Good food & plenty of Speights beer. Been here over the years in large groups and never a problem. Well run establishment with very efficient service.

Greeted and seated instantaneously, the owner/manager personally welcomed each guest and was genuinely interested in people's interests and reasons for travels. The food was prepared and delivered in a relatively short period of time considering it was quite busy. The food was reasonably priced and the portions were very generous. Great fresh produce absolutely mouth watering! Would be more than... More

I ordered the rib eye steak and wasn't disappointed, the portion size was decent and the price to suit. This was... More

We wandered in here for lunch on our way down to the glacier. The service was immediate & friendly. There were 3 of us & we had a bit of a wait for the meals but when they arrived they were great! I had the whitebait fritters which were just awesome! Partner had steak sandwich which was really good. Loved... More
