Had a great meal with good service. However a general comment was that the drinks were a little overpriced. Lemonade & Orange (for driver) $4.50 Glass beer $8.00

Looked a bit "family dining" and they were very busy, so we were pleasantly surprised at our tasty meals and desserts. The Salmon & duck breast were cooked perfectly. We will return and recommend to others. A constructive criticism, the lighting in the dining area could be a little dimmer making the area a bit more intimate/ relaxing

$28 for a serving of fish and chips... And the fish tastes like it was bought from the frozen section of the supermarket next door. What a shame. Well the molten dark chocolate dessert cake was quite good though.

Dear spiderman76, We would always offer to replace a dish that didn't meet our usual standards but would suggest alerting us to any issue when the server went back to your table to check on the quality of your meal. Our Fish & Chips dish usually receives fantastic feedback, so we were disappointed to read it didn’t live up to... More

My friend and I both had a very pleasant time at the Fat Duck. I had the lamb and the chocolate dessert, shed had fish and chips followed by the cheesecake, and every single dish was excellent. The waitress did a great job, being friendly and smiling the whole time. The Fat Duck is not a cheap place to dine... More

Overall, our experience was fine. They have a kids menu and brought our son's meal out with the appetizer. Speaking of which, baked goat cheese. Spectacular. Best thing we ate the entire trip. We got there right when they opened and service was attentive, but it seemed to drop off throughout the meal. When I paid I realized why, they... More

Visited with my husband, he had the seafood chowder to start and found it slightly bland...more like a creamy soup with some fish in it. He didn't get that seafood flavour he hoped for. I had mushroom arancini which were nice... the fruit chutney to accompany was delicious but the aioli didn't really go with it too well. For mains... More

One of the stand out meals of my life! Started with Beetroot/goats cheese tart, then pork belly with kumara gnocchi followed by chocolate molten cake. My partner had calamari and seafood chowder. Flavours in goats cheese tart excellent, pork belly and gnocchi phenomenal and chocolate molten cake was perfect - not too sweet and runny in middle!

Congratulations to the new owners - we had a very enjoyable evening. We were four for dinner on a quiet Winter Sunday, which was fortunate, as the place can be packed during the busy season. The ambience was very pleasant and the service efficient and charming. We were cosy indoors on a cold night, but noticed outdoor tables which would... More

After a very long trip out to Milford Sound and back, the Fat Duck was recommended to us by the staff at our accommodation. The cocktails were delicious and a great way to start the meal, although the Happy Hour didn't include a lot of what we were actually interested in having. The meal was delicious and generous, with good... More
