We went to the Moose Bar to simply enjoy a few games of pool and several pints of beer. As it turned out, we had a very nice meal of fish and chips while there. It was a fun place. It has several slot machines, too. The beer was good, the food was good and the service was good. Not... More

Overall, the restaurant was fine. Decent food, efficient service. Very limited vegetarian selection - however the fettucine alfredo was good. My burger was fine. Almost none of the Te Anau restaurants are open for dinner in August. This was 1 of 3, I believe that were.

Visited for dinner on a very wet, cold night. The restaurant was empty apart from two men at the bar and cold inside. We sat by the fire.Two of us ordered the garlic bread starter which came promptly and was delicious. Followed by one chicken schnitzel which was large and well cooked. It was served with some nicely cooked fries... More

Very limited vegetarian selection. The music selection was not to my taste. Service was bland to the point of disinterest. The food that was presented was not terrible, you get what you pay for. Suggest vegetarians avoid.

An OK family meal, the food was good enough for the price but nothing too stunning. Service was initially good but once the shift changed was slow.

The restaurant is quite cozy with great ambiance. The ribs are generally quite good however it was not served very hot in my opinion.

Staying in Te Anur - it looks closed at the moment ( school holidays start next week ) but is set in the most beautiful place - really relaxed place with nice staff - has a great music system and i guess it's a great bar - we went for lunch and just ordered starters to start with - although...

We spent 3 hours here waiting for the Glow Worm Tour. The young man behind the bar was welcoming and very freindly. We positioned ourselves in front of the fire on a very comfortable leather couch. I enjoyed a flutter on the pokies, no win unfortunately, my husband was able to finish some work that was urgent, and then we... More

The Moose was a warm and cheerful place to visit on a cold night and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The menu presented some delicious sounding options but our pork belly was disappointing...pub grub at a restaurant price

A family friendly restaurant and bar located on the shore of Beautiful Lake Te Anau. We have it all, from an exciting kids menu to a whole range of styles of our signature dish - The good ol' steak! Whether you chose to sit in our fantastic beer garden and enjoy the sunshine while watching the sailing boats on the lake, or to join in the atmosphere while cheering for your team on the big screen, or to have a flutter on one of our 2 TAB machines, or dance the night away to one of our many live music acts - there's something for everyone, here at the Moose.... It's everybody's local!
