“Wonderful Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

We were very pleased with the food and service. I had the Wild Goat and Pork Belly Shepherd's Pie, and it was wonderful.

“Great NZ variety”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

We had an extensive selection of mains to chose from at Redcliff. The lamb dish and the venison dish were excellent. Looking around the restaurant the other dinners looked equally appealing. We were glad we went a bit early as later arrivals were seated outside in back of the building. We didn't go out there and there were heaters above and blankets at each seat but it could have taken away from the meal. A good choice if you can be kept inside.

“Brilliant Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Stylishly presented modern NZ food. Excellent hare, goat, lamb, venison and beef. Wide choice of wines. A real find! We ate here twice and were not surprised to find it was always full.

“It's all about the Hare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Based on a week in the town, the food in Te Anua is generally over priced and averagely cooked. This is the exception, exception enough I went back 3 times!

The food in this restaurant is exquisite and original. Sourced locally you can be eating wild venison or even hare…. in fact I'd recommend the hare. I was sceptical but confited hare leg was better than the traditional duck version and the hare saddle, or was it strap, was like eating the best fillet steak with a earthy gamey undertone. YUM.

The kitchen is tiny, I have no idea how they cook in there, but from chaos comes perfection.

My only tiny gripe was the service was seriously slow a couple of evenings, so don't arrive starving. Trust me though the food is worth the wait.

“Good food, nicely presented and cooked.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

Two young European waiting staff very good and knowledgeable about the food. Food nicely presented , cooked really well and decent wine list. We were lucky to get a table at 7.15pm - so advisable to book ahead.
