The staff at WGK were great from the time we arrived until the time we left. What's more the food was outstanding! especially the pork belly entree, it was just simply devine and then came my stonegrill venison. [Note: If you've haven't had a stonegrill...dish before, Sam will help guide you through the process with suggestions to cooking your protein so that you can enjoy your meal to your liking and not get burnt in the process.] Would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone and would definitely go back if I'm ever in Wanaka again. We loved WGK!More

I had the beef on the hot plate and that was great. Another had blue cod which was also very good. The other had a chicken dish which was good. The deserts were nice. The service was friendly with good timing. We were happy to...return here again.More

We had such a great experience at WGK. It was a treat to be able to get amazingly delicious and well presented food in a place that also caters for children (which is hard to find). The host on arrival was friendly, warm and welcoming....The wait staff were all freindly and super efficient and went out of there way for our kids. The children were provided with colouring items when seated to keep them entertained and the menu options for them were healthy and delicious (not just the regular fried food which is so common at many restaurants catering for kids). Our adult entrees were delicious and very generous (I had the pork belly - amazing). We both ordered steak for dinner and it was exquisite. It was a high quality steak with a beautiful flavour. My husband and I refused to order steak anywhere else on our trip as we knew it couldnt live up to the standard of the WGK one we ate. (my mouth waters as i type) The wine and beer selection was also great. The restaurant is small and cosy but vibrant when full. I would recommend booking in as you wont want to miss this treat. Also bathrooms were modern and very clean (oh so very important). Would i dine there again - absolutely yes.More

Would totally recommend WGK for a special meal out. We chose it for our wedding anniversary and it exceeded our expectations. The slow cooked lamb with roast veg and mashed potato was probably the best I’ve ever had. The staff were all friendly, helpful and...knowledgeable and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. We would not hesitate to go there again.More

We had a delicious dinner here. The staff were great and accommodating. We hadn’t booked and were able to sit at the bar for a drink before our table was ready. Great selection of food. Would highly recommend.

My husband & I ate here and it was lovely. Friendly staff up for a laugh & with good knowledge of the area & the foods they were serving. We had the entree of scallops which was tasty. My husband had the Wakanui Eye Fillet...& I had the Venison on hot stone. Both were beautifully presented & very tasty. The venison was a good size & the sides were delicious. We finished by sharing an Apple Crumble which was lovely. Great service & greT meals.More

The lamb was incredible. I highly recommend this for couples. Bought a beautiful bottle of Maori point rosé to compliment it. Service was impeccable and the place was lively. Never been to Wanaka for dinner and was not disappointed
