The location or this restaurant is up at the top end of the main street. Service was prompt and friendly. I had the lambs liver and it was a very generous portion beautifully cooked. My wife went for the mussels, a full kilo in a very tasty coconut source, and served with garlic bread. The restaurant has a very good selection of South Island wines and an excellent range of beers. There tables both inside and out.

Nice place, but dont expect a treat. The food is quite bland and void of any interest. Its quite clear the chef didnt care much for his work.

The food is quite nice and service is good. Duck is great and other food is also great. Mussels are huge and pumpkins is delicious.

We had dinner at the Fat Duck. The food was fantastic. I had pork belly, something I probably wouldn't have at home but it was great and perfect 'crackling'. The service was excellent and nothing was to much trouble and great value for money. We would have loved dessert but couldn't squeeze it in. Toilets spotlessly clean. Highly recommended.

While driving to Milford Sounds from Queenstown we stopped at Te Anau and were looking for public utilities when we came across this corner restaurant.

We settled for breakfast and found the food and coffee very good to let it go and ended up spending quite a lot of time, chatting with the staff. I even signed a public interest petition about a tunnel.

On the whole a very nice place and a must visit if on route to Milford Sounds.
