Great food, wine and the service is fantastic. In the summer time they have a great area out the front to hang and have a drink in the hot Te Anau sun.

Have eaten at Redcliffs on a number of occasions over the last 9 years. Very good menu that serves great local game (venison, hare etc) and has a good wine list and bar. Very friendly staff and a great option if you want sone 'fine dining' in Te Anau.

As no. 1 of Te Anau the restaurant should stay sharp. The food was good, service fine, however I had some fish bones in my fish fillet, the venison meat of my girlfriend was black cooked and I found a wire brush piece in my food. This is not good for a top restaurant they pretend to be.

We stopped by here for dinner tonight after reading great reviews about this place. When we first walked into this cozy restaurant, we immediately felt welcomed by the warm smiles of the staff. We ordered baby paua with squid ink pasta and wild hare, which were both delicious! I also craved for some polenta chips and our attentive waiter brought... More

I believe a 5 star rating should be reserved for places and experiences only where one was truly blown away, and the Redcliffe restaurant situated in the quiet township of Te Anau blew me.
