We did not know that this place was a hit with the people until we got there and when we went out there were people lining up to eat. Tip: get there pretty early or book, as it really is a hit with the people. The food is really good, and we were stuffed at the end of the night.... More

We had both dinner and breakfast here. Such a lovely restaurant! They are very reasonably priced, with genuinely friendly service. For dinner I had the beef and red wine casserole which was delicious, and my boyfriend had the rump steak which he said was great. The banoffee pie for dessert was to DIE for! I am a huge fan of...

Our simple meals were inexpensive, service was very friendly, and the view of the lake(from virtually all tables) unsurpassed. Nice big ol' wood-burning stove right in the middle, too.

After landing in lake tekapo and staying at peppers, we wanted to taste the local food... Pumped after bumping into some grey power representatives, they recommended this restaurant... We were skeptical, but the food was down to earth and delightful... Highly recommend the salmon and the other specialty mains. I would say after reading other reviews for restaurants for lake...

I have been meaning to review this restaurant since I was there over a year ago. The fact that it still stands out in my mind should speak volumes! I had dinner here during the winter months, so it was pretty empty and very easy to get a table for 1. The atmosphere in the dining room is fantastic: warm... More

We had a tasty dinner (lamb medallions, chilli) with delicious wine and ale, at very reasonable prices. We liked the restaurant and came back for breakfast, sitting outside with stunning views overlooking Lake Tekapo. The free wifi is really helpful too!

Had dinner twice at this restaurant. Make reservations as this restaurant fills up pretty fast and eat early, and it has one of the best views of the lake, which disappears at sundown. The food was affordable as NZ restaurants go, about $20 for a big serving of fish and chips or the steak daily special. The chips weren't oily... More

The staff is very friendly, free Wi-Fi and a good breakfast, that's all you want in the morning. Nice place to sit, also outside when the weather is better.

We live in Australia but visit NZ frequently and Lake Tekapo is one of our favourite places. When we decided to get married there locals consistently gave Reflections Restaurant rave reviews, feedback which we value more than a one off experience from tourists. From initial communication right up to the event we felt the owners (Michael & Kim) and staff... More
