A great meal wonderfully priced

Went here for lunch with my hubby today while exploring wanaka and had the nicest lunch. Cafe atmosphere with friendly staff. Hubby loved the bangers and mash and $10 fish and chips with salad was yum and a great price. Overlooking the lake.

We had a large group and the staff made us feel truly welcomed with their warm hospitality. I had the lamb and my partner had the fillet steak and we... More

As a frequent single diner on business trips it gets a little old, but tonight I felt compelled to write my first ever review on trip advisor because of the awesome service here.

Cold blustery day walked into Trout and it was lovely and cosy. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was presented beautifully and tasted even better. We will be back.

We went here just for dessert after eating dinner elsewhere in town. We had the cheesecake and the chocolate brownie. Both were delicious and portion sizes were generous. Staff were friendly and place was nicely decorated inside. After looking at the main menu we would definitely return to try dinner too as the options were good and seemed reasonably priced.

The best place in Wanaka for a quiet drink to sit in the sun & watch the sunset. The food is great, the service brilliant & the staff so helpful & friendly! Don't miss out on Wanaka's best/worst kept secret. Enjoy!
