Reviewed September 8, 2012

We sat in the bar area and had dinner. Service was excellent, the atmosphere was warm and cosy and the meals were delicious. We would come back again if we are ever in town.

“Recommended”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Our B&B host recommended the Fat Duck and we were not disappointed. The friendly bar staff greeted us with a warm welcome and were quick to offer us a cold drink. The food was great and was nice and quick once we had ordered. Highly recommended for a nice relaxing evening in Te Anau.

“Yummy”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We decided to take the kids out for tea, and it was decided that we would go to the closest place.
We had a really nice meal and the kids menu is great. Has a great bar and the atmosphere was great. Very friendly staff and great service. Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing night out that does not cost the earth. We left feeling very full!!!
