Trout's prime location on the lake front of Wanaka provides it with fantastic views. We have great food, whether you are just after a snack or a main meal. We have 6 Monteiths beers, Heineken & Erdinger on tap as well as a wide range of local wines.

Beautiful food and lovely views

The service and food at Trout was terrific. Amazing views and a chilled atmosphere added to what is a great place. Don't miss out, dine at Trout.

It was annoying having to wait for help while others jumped ahead but Trout has big menu options with me having a sausages and sauer kraut dish from the bar offerings which tasted very good. A mistake was made with the payment but the woman cheerfully fixed it and apologized. OK overall at the Trout Bar Wanaka.

The wife and I had dinner here ('beer battered' fish & chips) on Sunday. It was remarkably quiet after a very busy Friday night where the crowd was swelled by attendants at the A&P Show being held on Friday & Saturday. Service was friendly, and food arrived promptly. Fish (blue cod) was tasty, and the batter light and not stodgy.... More

Ate here on our first night in Wanaka on a business trip with about 7 colleagues. It was nice to be seated right away, as we didn't have a booking at it was about 7:30. Things in Wanaka, especially places on the lakefront get very busy in the evenings, and its difficult to get a table for a large group.... More

Great food, fun and friendly service. By far the best flat white I've had in Wanaka! It was even delivered with a gorgeous elephant on top :-)

Had the veggie stack and enjoyed it so much we came back for more of the same the following evening. Friendly staff (and owner), nice view over Lake Wanaka. Can get quite busy.

Went for a relaxing lunch before we headed off to a wedding. The beautiful Scottish chick who served us made it an awesome experience. We only had a short time frame to eat and go, so she was very helpful in getting us feed and away with making the experience feeling relaxed and heaps of laughs. Our meals came out... More
