“The worst possible service in the world!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2011

My wife had dinner in this establishment. When she found a large oyster shell in her meal which should only contain prawns and mentioned this to the waiter - she was abused in the worst possible way!!!

“Better Elsewhere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2011

NZ eateries are generally extremely casual. While Capricio maintains this, it sells itself on being an up market Restaurant and the menu prices reflect this without an improvement on either quality or imagination.

The Restaurant was recommended by the Owner of the hotel we were staying at but there are other places in Wanaka that provided the same quality food for les $$$. I found Carpicio trying to be something it isn't and a bit pretentiuos and lacking a style of its own.

The food was reasonable, the service poor. I expected more given the way it promotes itself and was disappointed.

“Food was okay but didn't really have much flavour, very bland”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2011

I was hoping the food would have a little more flavor, instead I found myself adding copious amounts of cracked pepper just to taste something in my pasta. Staff however are very friendly and attentive even with a full restaurant.

“not recommended”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2010

My steak was overcooked, fries were oily. My wife had a herb crusted salmon; not a good recipe. Slow service.
Was recommended by our motel; bad advice they must be mates!
