Good Lunch and Great Service with Beer and Wine

Lovely place with both inside and outside dining overlooking Lake Wanaka. Had beer, wine, scones and BLAT. All were very good. We walked the 2KM from Wanaka and it was a lovely walk for lunchg

1st cafe I've been to where you have a scone menu! Order the scone you'd like and 20-30 minutes later it is served, freshly baked with your coffee or tea. Choice of savoury and sweet scones. Beautiful setting within the Edgewater hotel complex over looking Lake Wanaka and the stunning surroundings. Plenty of place to sit in and outside to... More

Has the potential to be great, but we felt a bit let down. Whilst my food was excellent, my companions had dry tuna, rubbery duck pancakes and over cooked steak. The waitress moved the wine list to put down a plate and didn't think to ask if we wanted wine. Service was from every person on staff, no continuity. Cutlery... More

Had dinner at the restaurant while staying at the Edgewater. Food selection was varied and there was something to appeal to everyone's appetite. The meals were prepared to order and coupled with a variety of local vegetables. The sauces for each dish were well balanced with the dish if not overly creative.

We were staying at Edgewater anyway so ate in the Wineglass the first evening. Not the second... The food was good when it came but it was a long time coming.

I think the last time I dined in this hotel dining room was about 15 years ago. Sadly, I won't be rushing back. All four of us agreed that the food was rather ordinary. Perhaps it was 'chef's night off'.... A few days later we talked to some friends from overseas who were staying at Edgewater. They were happy with... More

We stayed at the Edgewater resort, so it was very convenient to have a meal there also. On the Saturday night we booked a table and enjoyed attentive service and amazing meals. Everything was cooked well, presented nicely and tasted delicious. Well priced and quick service.
