Great food and service even though they had a full restaurant with lots of hungry skiers who all arrived at the same time.

Great food and friendly staff, however decor was a bit off putting, looks like it's a bistro from the 90s. Could spend little to make it a more pleasurable dinning experience

Thougher knowledge of the menu and what's good where meat was from and happy to give you a full run down in a way that's not pushy but makes you want to have everything.

We ended up eating at WGK twice during our 6 night stay as we wanted to experience more of the food on the menu. Absolutely delicious and couldn't fault a thing

We chose this place after looking at reviews on here and it should be rated higher! The meat is exceptional with service to match. Interesting items on the menu along with local wines. The staff were friendly and attentive. We had the scotch egg starter and the lamb speciality to share. The chef came out and greeted each table clearly... More

Fantastic menu to choose from without it being overwhelming. I took my parents and young children here for dinner, the staff were very attentive and made the whole experience very pleasant. Everyone's meals were delicious, we will be back! I really recommend the duck

Despite this being on the fine dining side of Wanaka restaurants the kids menu is truly outstanding and my 2 and 3 year olds, were begging to go back to have some more chicken and chips. I had the venison and it was delightful. I shouldn't have had dessert as I was too full from my main but that was... More

Just visited the Wanaka Gourmet Kitchen and I must say they certainly know their meat. I had their signature dish (the lamb shoulder) and my partner had the venison. We both enjoyed our dishes thoroughly! The only negative was I didn't have enough room to fit it all in. The lamb shoulder was huge and would probably have fed both... More

The staff are delightful - informed and attentive. Our waitress was a one-person Saatchi & Saatchi advertorial for the restaurant - talking up the prime dishes to a crescendo of expectation. Unfortunately, the delivery fell short of the promise. On arrival, you are greeted by well-stocked liquor shelves, squealing 'Yay - it's time for a cocktail!'. Sadly, none of the... More
