The view was incredible. The food was amazing and the wait staff were fabulous. In particular we loved Laurent (Larry). His sense of humor and knowledge about the wines and the menu made for an unforgettable meal.

Looking over the lake with the mountains in the background, the setting is picture perfect. The wine list is expansive and expensive. The waitstaff are friendly and attentive. What let down this experience was the food. Vegetarian score 2/5. General score 3/5

Very good restaurant. We had breakfast (4 days) and dinner (two days) there. They have very fresh fish - my favorite. My husband had duck (one night) and fish the other.

We have been to some of the finest restaurants around the world and they are nothing on this outstanding establishment. The chef is dynamic and the food is exceptional, better than Versace on the Gold Coast! A must when you are in NZ!!!
