“Epicurean Sensuality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We were trying to go to the so called best restaurant in Wanaka but always seemed to be booked at the time we wanted . So we took a wonder and looked at the menu of "The Landing" and it seemed very much a fusion and melding of tastes. Well after our experience of the last 4 days previous of service staff not realizing that our 5 yr. old daughter needed a little extra attention with timing of food delivery, it was a great pleasure to have staff at the Landing not require prompting but for them to ask if we would like our daughter's food out sooner. Service was fantastic, attentive,polite and not over-bearing or dismissive . The food was exquisite an absolute delight of flavors especially of the game - Rabbit , duck and more. having just come back from Spain and the San Sebastian region which boasts 21 Michelin stars in a 5km radius the food we received at The Landing was equal to those meals. Well done The Landing and don't let anyone tell you otherwise, it made our stay in Wanaka quite memorable food wise.

“Excellent food, service a bit slow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We enjoyed the food here and the portions were generous and delicious. With some game on the menu we had rabbit and duck. The atmosphere is nice and very modern, we were there at night so could not enjoy the views, but I am sure during the day they would be stunning. The service was a little slow which was the only dampener on the evening.

“Best fine dining in Wanaka”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Decide to return to the Landing after a couple of years away. Had a great experience from start to finish. The restaurant is warm and comfortable with a greta view down the lakefront.
The staff was fun, attentaive and helpful. The food was amongst the best I've had in NZ. My Fillet was perfectly medium rare and my wife love the chicken to. Wine list was comprehensive and reasonably priced (for fine dining). This is not a fast food restaurant but if you want a great foodie experience I would highly recomend it.
