“Last Light Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

Rooms are adequate, thin walls, shared bathrooms BUT warm. Food at the cafe is first class, both in quality and value.

“An unexpected delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

Just eaten a beautiful meal in the Last Light Lodge Cafe, at Tuatapere, Southland, New Zealand. I had the Warm Blue Cod salad and my friend had the Greek Salad. Both generous servings, fresh, crisp, great flavours and the cod was to die for - lightly pan fried and with a delicious balsamic dressing. A great sauvignon to accompany, and lovely ambience - this place is part of a back packer's lodge/ holiday camp, but the meal was worthy of any great restaurant in the capital Wellington. Thanks guys - a great send off meal before we walk the Hump Ridge and eat freeze dried food for the next few days.

“Great food at the end of the Hump Ridge Track”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

Best hot chocolate! Nice pasta, lots of choice on the menu and an all day breakfast that I really would have liked to order from at 3pm in the afternoon.
