“Great value, fantastic food & awesome service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

We dined at the Chinese Restaurant, Pepe's & McKenzies whilst in Lake Tekapo. This restaurant was outstanding from the perspective of service, food quality & value. We would have to say one if the best dining experiences we had during our 3 week trip around the South Island! Other reviews we read about this establishment were undeserved as our experience was nothing but positive & enjoyable!

“Don't miss out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This was unfortunately the last place we dined on our trip and were amazed by the excellent quality and price of the food. The staff were friendly and quick, I have no negative comments to give. Will definitely eat here next time!

“Fantastic! Beef fillet & service 10/10”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

While it wasn't our first choice, I was very impressed with the friendly service. Advised immediately that there would be a delay. Felt very taken care of, front of house staff fantastic. Then the food arrived. He had steak eggs and chips, looked very happy. I had the beef fillet, cooked and seasoned to perfection. Awesome night. Thanks team :)

“Great food and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Beautiful location overlooking the lake, nice and warm with a couple of fires going, food wasn't particularly cheap but it was generous and delicious.

“$15 corn chips”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Went into the Restaurant expecting tourist pricing. Did not expect the quality to be at such an average standard. I ordered the nachos but received a plate corn chips covered with a minimal amount of slightly hotter than room temperature mince mixture that tasted rather bland. Friends seemed to have similar comments about their meals. Patronizing comments from staff about moving tables. Apparently if you work in hospitality you don't put the customer first. How do you return a profit with that business acumen?
