Good quality pub grub. Lunch was cheap and well portioned, a wide variety on offer, very good value for what you got. Dinner looked more expensive, comparable to high end joints in town, so I would hope that the meals were of a higher standard to match. Will be coming back some time

Stopped in for lunch around 3pm and were a little late to order from the lunch menu, but were offered some snacks to order from. Ordered the home made loaf and salt and pepper squid. Was a good light feed and very nice. Good value also.

We have found the food here to be very tasty every time, however the downside is their dessert menu - when we visited there wasn't one item on the menu which had chocolate. I would have thought a dessert which contained chocolate would be the first thing you'd put on the dessert menu.. strange.

We dined here on our last night in Wanaka. This is a lovely place to have a drink with gorgeous views over Lake Wanaka. We decided to have dinner and it was soooo difficult to decided what to have! They had a great monthly wild food special which I will have next time. The service was great and the staff... More

Just had a beautiful lunch at the Trout Bar, never had such perfectly cooked Blue Cod!!! Fries were perfect and the salad complete with dressing was to die for. Staff were extra friendly and really looked after us. Went there for business lunch and would highly recommend the Trout Bar as the place to go. All in all excellent service,... More

Trout is not for fine dining but if you want a good meal at a reasonable price with lake views then this is the place. Staff very friendly and the Aubergine Parmigiana with Israeli Couscous I had was to die for. A good spot also if you want to watch some sport, have a drink and have a casual meal.... More

Had a delicious lamb burger and some venison tapas on a skewer. Washed it down with some delicious beer and a decent view down the lake to snow capped mountains. Paradise.

Went to Trout with a family group for dinner, due to long wait times at the nearby Speights Ale House. Should have waited it out... The atmosphere is good and the area at the front is ideal for a couple of beers, so we stayed on for dinner. The menu was rather lacking in choice, but presumed that this would... More

We live in Auckland, but come to Wanaka every year. We have been to Trout a couple of times-most recently in February 2014. We found the service & food to be good, and enjoyed the music of Danny a few times. No doubt we will visit again.
