“Delicious food with a great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

The wineglass cafe honestly offers some of the best food that I have eaten in a long while!! With a great selection of local produce and wines the restaurant has got to be one of my favorites in the region.

Sitting outside on a warm day was really just beautiful with mountainous views while sitting basically right on the edge of Lake Wanaka makes for an unforgettable dining experience!

I will 100% be returning to Edgewater and the wineglass cafe!

Dear Eezp

Great news that you'll be joining us again at Edgewater. We look forward to welcoming you back.

We work very hard at keeping our quality and service levels high and so I"m pleased you enjoyed such great food and perhaps some of our sumptuous local wines.

The Terrace area is fantastic and with the long,hot summer days ahead of us there are plenty of opportunity to join us again.

Kind regards

“Great food and delightful venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Whether it be for dinner or for lunch, or even afternoon tea, this is still a great place to visit. This week we had a dinner, a couple of lunches, and several afternoon teas here whilst staying in Wanaka. You've GOT to try the scones available in the afternoon - freshy baked, and a range of great flavours you won't have tried in a scone before - the gluten-free option was raspberry and white chocolate!

The dinner and lunch options cover all tastes and meals are delicious and beautifully presented. We will definitely return.

“Under pressure!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

The food was good, but felt that the kitchen was under pressure dealing with so many diners, our meal was certainly rushed, but the staff were entertaining and the setting great. Coffee was really good!!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and give us your feedback. From time to time we do find the Wineglass Cafe becomes very busy, especially on sunny days when guests and visitors seek to enjoy the lovely Terrace area overlooking the lake.

Our apologies that on the day you visited it was rushed.

However we're pleased the coffee and food was good.

We look forward to you visiting us again.

“A very nice meal in a lovely spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We did not stay at the Edgewater, but in retrospect we wish we had. It's a lovely place. We did end up eating there twice in to days, which probably says something. My wife had a breaded chicken with fettuccini, while I had an Angus burger paired with a dark beer.
