We are lucky enough to live in the paradise that is Golden Bay. Even luckier now that we have a fine dining restaurant that is Ratanui Lodge.

If you find yourself in Golden Bay and want to experience exquisite food, a beautiful selection of wines, and excellent service, at a very reasonable price, then look no further.

I have dined here on many an occasion with both family and friends and have never been disappointed.

We had an absolutely wonderful time. The owners were truly fantastic. The food was divine (all fresh and organic). The service was superb with a touch of down to earth friendliness. The room was elegant with some lovely touches. I would (and have) recommend Ratanui Lodge to anyone.

This restaurant has wonderful service and is definately one of the best restaurants in top of the south island. Food is absolutely beautiful and atmosphere is great! Couldn't want for more....service far exceeds our expectations everytime! I mentioned it was my partners birthday and they made a surprise chocolate cake for the whole table...it was delicous! Thank you once again for a lovely evening out!
