Obviously a super popular spot. A wide and interesting menu and good portions. A lively environment and efficient friendly staff. I had chicken schnitzel and sticky toffee pudding, which I couldn’t fault.

Very good. The portions of food were large for a median price. Will definitely reccommend going here.

Amazing service and friendly staff who were not fussed by how busy they were that night. Fantastic meal and very reasonably priced. Would recommend it to anyone.

Started out being seated upstairs at a table for two under eaves which you had to duck to sit, but were told we would be moved and eventually were to a larger table up more stairs. This was okay as we hadn't made a reservation....Husband had lamb roast, I had lamb salad - both meals superb, could not fault. We were finished our meals , out of drinks and water and no service so eventually my husband went up to the bar and ordered more drinks and asked for dessert menu. This was brought to us, we ordered sticky date pudding and more water. Pudding arrived, was good but no water. Ordered again when plates cleared, and again when waitress passed and this time got some. So overall food was great, service not so great, maybe caught them on a bad or short staffed night I don't know. Bill for 2 of us was $102.00 for two mains, one dessert, 2 wines, 2 beers.More

Went here cos it was busy so thought it would be good. The salad and chips were good. The fish was Yukon, not sure how many days old it was

Very tasty, good size meals. My venison steak was probably my favourite meal during our four night stay in Te Anau. Great service. Large drinks.
