Three of us visited for an early evening meal on a cold winters evening. It was warm and inviting inside and very busy, and that is always a good sign. At times the noise levels were a little too high for easy conversation but we managed. All the staff were great. We felt despite being busy that they had plenty... More

We recently had a week in Wanaka and discovered Trout in the latter half of our trip and wishing we had found it sooner. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The menu had food to suit all tastes including a childrens' menu. The customer service was attentive but not overwhelming. A good selection of local and international alcohol. This was... More

As it was happy hour (5:00-6:30pm) PINTS of beer and cider were $5 (house wine also $5 but I wanted a particular pinot that they discounted for... More

We ate at this restaurant several time and every time found the experience amazing. Food was great and the service thanks to the beautiful Ruth could not have been any better. The Chiefs mulled wine was the best we had during our trip. Thanks guys.

Had a great lunch at Trout last week. They were very busy but the waitress was amazing and made sure every table had everything they needed and were happy. The coffee was hot and creamy and served in good time with the fact that it was so busy with just the one waitress. She did an amazing job getting all... More

Had a good lunch special menu - three decent options for $10. Warm place with very friendly staff and first place we have found that served mulled cider! Very delicious. Make sure you try!
