We hit this restaurant after coming off the glowworms caves boat. It was open late which is where we were grateful. The service was lacklustre, the food tasty but average. The prices were reasonable. This is also a bar, and we found the loud music...More

We had drinks here in the afternoon to admire the view. The staff were friendly and drink prices were reasonable. My partner had an evening meal of ribs which he thoroughly enjoyed.

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!
