Great restaurant, excellent service and food.

We recently enjoyed a night at Urban Grind. After thoroughly enjoying the outdoor fire place for some craft beers we were seated inside for and dined on their delicous food. The prawn stew and blue cod sliders were to die for. The wait staff were especially friendly and polite and provided us... read more

We came for dinner here reasonable late (round 9pm) after a day's skiing and it suited our needs perfectly. We weren't super hungry so we shared some sliders (pork belly and blue cod) and fries and they were delicious. The ambience/decor was modern and warm and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Really enjoyed our meal and would come... More

Possibly our favourite place to dine in Wanaka. The food was exquisite and great value and the staff, Ruth especially, were excellent. We chilled outside next to the open fire place under the stars after a great day on the slopes. Highly recommended.

2 for 1 pizza drew us in, and I'll be coming back! I'm no veggie, but wow the veggie pizza was awesome!!! Would nearly go as far as to say you're better than Francesca's (don't tell Fran!)

Lovely place and great food but very unfriendly to children, not like they were running up and down screaming but the older dark haired lady didn't want them to move! She kept telling them off even when they went out to the garden to talk and where no one was sitting, and we could see them, she stormed out after... More

UrbanG_12, Manager at Urban Grind, responded to this review

“Unattended children will be sold to the circus” Sorry that your first ever Trip Advisor review was to complain that our staff had had enough of your children. Your children were running around the restaurant even standing on the toilet to see themselves in the mirror. We need to balance the experience of the other guests with that of yourself.... More

Whether popping in for quick take away coffee or meeting up with friends for breakfast, brunch, lunch or supper this is the place to go. Excellent coffee and first class home baking - never disappoints.

A great place to visit for amazing mocha and chocolate but not good for the diet. Great food also with a super atmosphere and plenty of space, children not highly catered for with toys and books but space to move around.

We were here between Autumn and Winter and enjoyed coming for the special twice. Providing you have 2 drinks you pay for one pizza and get two. (In other words, two pizza's for the price of one, with a drink each or if solo, two drinks!) We enjoyed it so much we came back again with friends. Good idea before... More
